I prefer the term toileted when the exploit only causes Windows XP re-flushing.
For the destruction of a data centre, I recommend the term "constipated". Ie the entire data centre was constipated by the active-x exploit.
When an entire country is disrupted by an exploit I feel the term "mega-plopped" is fitting.
I also feel the general population would relate better to these terms and these terms would help motivate them to avoid such incidents via mental imagery association. The idea of a brick has little symbolic value, especially as many computers are shaped like bricks anyway.
