Hi troggien,

Welcome to the Community!

Yes! Trend Micro Security protects your machine from cryptocurrency miner Coinhive (detected as HKTL_COINMINE). 
Other prevention measures include blocking Javascript-based applications from running on your browsers and generally, keeping your browsers and OS up to date.

In addition, our Mobile Security for Android also detects apps that have hidden crypto mining capabilities.

Here are some Security News for your referenceHope that gives you peace of mind ; )
