Microsoft Now Supports Cryptomining In Excel…

via Graham Cluley, comes news of a highly questionable decision made by Microsoft Corporation (Nasdaq: MSFT) developers to begin offering JavaScript support in the company’s flagship spreadsheet bits.

‘Right now, JavaScript in Excel custom functions is only supported in the Developer Preview edition to Office 365 subscribers enrolled in the Office Insiders program. But it seems inevitable that in the not too distant future it will be available in more widely-used versions of Excel as well.’ – via Graham Cluley
