You have to be really careful when you do stuff unrelated to your work on the computer provided by employer. Last month, two IT specialists working in the government of Crimea were fired. The reason was peculiar: they were mining Bitcoins at work using government computers.

Two individuals, who were working as IT specialists in the Council of Ministers of Crimea have installed mining software on government computers. They were fired immediately after their supervisor discovered that. There is no information how effective were they or how long they have been mining.

There is also no information if the government will press charges against those individuals.
