Cryptomining this way could seriously harm your computer.
It is damaging your hardware (video-card) in a bad way in the long run.

Waiting for the first blackhats that will adopt av-crypto-miners to their own pool.

At first AV started whining about every trace of your computer mining, and now they adopt to the latest craze.
