Re: I'm OK with this

There is a cost for background mining, power, life of CPU etc. OK, perhaps minuscule and something I would agree to if asked for informed consent. The crucial point is that I am not asked so have not agreed and it is theft.

The other concern is security. Who knows what may be smuggled onto my PC along with the mining script.
