If it ends up having an enormous benefit with zero harm being done, I
don't see how it could be called immoral. I do not equate the law
with morality (though they intersect quite substantially).
I was simply thinking up a *pragmatic* solution to the problem posed.
People already have the means to detect and remove zombies and other
malware, but it is evident that there are many people who cannot or
will not do so.
