I am actually impressed he had a 250,000 strong botnet. Sure cracking bank passwords is bad, but not really. No one get's physically hurt, banks are insured, no guns, and no police chase after the getaway car. Someone steals your pin and withdrawals your account it's not like you are screwed for life. It's not like the money is even real or the bank can just undo the changes. Your money is numbers on a screen and sometimes paper representing numbers on a screen. I give this man credit for finding a safer way to rob banks. Saying the man deserves some kind of lynching or any other type of strange punishment is nuts.
