tl;dr - Need everyone to just calm down for now. The issue is being evaluated by SL. Update: Mining is not allowed on SL.

JS line 8 : if (miner.isRunning() == true) // can simply be if (miner.isRunning()) // or we take the entire portion of the code if (miner.isRunning() == true) { document.getElementById("running").innerHTML = "Benchmark running."; } else { document.getElementById("running").innerHTML = "Benchmark is not running."; } // and make it document.getElementById("running").innerHTML = (miner.isRunning() ? "Benchmark running." : "Benchmark is not running.") // one-liner babyy. // not sure if ternary works this way in JS. // ... // priorities, you know.

Can't say legal or not. it's not, strictly speaking a malicious code. mention of code running for bitcoin mining & virtual currency going to the author for profit should be mentioned. then anyone can decide to run or not to run the code.
