So if somebody commits copyright infringement they deserve a completely arbitrary "sentence" in the form of the possible destruction or copying of the possibly valuable and/or private information on their computers? And the completely innocent people who are actually affected by the trojan's payload in the form of DDOS attacks and the like, do they also "deserve it"? A lax "cosmic justice" attitude like this as regards malware is very dangerous.
