The broader definition of "virus creators"
Without sounding liking I am straying off topic, I want to broaden the definition of virus creators to include other low life types the ones who author sneaky, maligning malware (the nastiest breed of adware/spyware). Just like viruses come in many different levels of nastiness, some light and some more seriously harmful, there is a new deadly breed of spyware that goes far beyond just bringing adware into your system. It comes in the form of some serious hi-jackers that are becoming almost impossible to remove. I am not just talking about home page hi-jackers but system hi-jackers that are becoming next to impossible to remove because of ever increasing levels of advanced and evasive dirty gotcha tactics.
Im talking of the kind of malware that puts its dirty meat hooks into your system then like a good buddy system advisor pretending to be on your side dutifully tells you are infected and directs you to their clean up product with an evil grin. It is the vandalistic game the viral creator plays with a deadly dose of electronic extortion thrown it. Pay us to protect you from us or else. Both viral and malware creators share the same disdain and disregard for their victims but this type of malware now tries to profit from your misery.
What punishment should be handed down to the malware and virus creators? Considering seriously the unbelievable amount of time and human energy being robbed daily in totality in many millions of cases, the value in dollars would be enough to alter the course of many starving and struggling nations. I wont even make a suggestion except to say seriously that is some cases a life time jail sentence not be too harsh.
