JS miner is being blocked by windows microsoft defender. Is it safe to proceed to install the extension and turn off Microsoft defender?

Hi Thanks for letting us know. If you're at all worried about any extension, we encourage you to review the source code and build it yourself. Before publishing any extension or update, we do look through the source code and evaluate the extension according to these criteria: https://portswigger.net/blog/your-recipe-for-bapp-store-success You can find a link to the GitHub repository used for the BApp Store version of the extension on the details for the extension or here: https://github.com/PortSwigger/js-miner
