Norton's letting you mine crypto on your Antivirus

A safe mining software, or an unnecessary add-on?

My question is, how does this benefit Norton? They must receive some crypto as commission or something. Not that I'd ever use Norton willingly though, even if they offered me a unicorn

And even if that unicorn came with all the luck in the world and a big pile of cash, i'd still not use it!

This is a weird offering from Norton and i'm gonna be wondering how long it takes before this goes wrong in one way or another.
