Starbucks WiFi mines Bitcoin while connected

Noah Dinkin found out that Starbucks mines Bitcoin while you’re connected to their free WiFi. In Dinkins tweet he addressed that this kind of free WiFi service is a “little off-brand” and also that the store in Buenos Aires was not the only store doing this and in-fact that there was three separate stores which Dinkins went to that all did the same thing.
