about the event I experienced.

"JScoinminer is a web-based detection for a JavaScript cryptocurrency miner that runs in web browsers. The JavaScript coin miner consumes enormous CPU resources, making computer very slow. The JavaScript is loaded in the browser when you visit a webpage hosting the JavaScript. The JavaScript runs as long as you stay on the webpage. As long as the website being visited is injected with the coin mining JavaScript, the website will be blocked by this signature. The computer system is not actually "infected" when this detection triggers.

Norton protects you against the Coinminer malware. Run LiveUpdate to make sure that your Norton definitions are up to date and run full system scan. If you that particular website is suspecious according the Norton definitions that it will block it again."
