It's really sad how many people want to throw their rights away on a whim so they can join the hate bandwagon and feel good about themselves.

Your right to...not contract spyware from doing illegal s***?

That's not listed anywhere last I checked.

Forfeit when you downloaded the thing unless you're an idiot with your security policies, at least insofar as the files on your machine are concerned. You hit the "yes" button, mate.

At best you could try to argue "But well all that kiddy porn wasn't labeled as police spyware so it's not ok!".

The people who downloaded the malware didn't say "yes I'm sure" to "would you like to allow the FBI to look through your computer with this piece of malware". The malware performed a function that the user did not intend to happen, outside of the normal operation of the computer. It adds a new, unwanted feature.

If you want to go down the analogy route again, that's like inviting an undercover police officer into your house for a cup of coffee & having them proceed to search it in secrecy & against your will.


...you missed the part where the malware came from a child porn site, I see.


I didn't, but I chose not to bring it up because it was irrelevant. What the malware itself did was the unconstitutional search.

Sure, it's easy to say that the people affected by it deserved it, but we have laws for a reason. They're here to protect our rights, & the only alternative is a system where whatever the person who's in charge says goes. The people who were arrested through the investigation have all committed crimes but that doesn't justify the crimes committed upon them.

The FBI hacked a CP site and used it to send malware to people that accessed it. I say good riddance.

Well for one they got in trouble for that, and two they probably infect every computer on the botnet that probably includes a ton of innocent but incompetent people.

It's entirely relevant: This is not a random, untargetted search on unsuspecting citizens like you're attempting to spin it as.

The crime where they said "Yes I want to allow this program access to my machine and the internet".

Sorry laws don't exist to protect criminals from their own stupidity.

You're making a lot of assumptions to win an "internet fight" that never even started.
I think I hit the nail on the head there.

and you're making a lot of effort to say that you have a constitutional right to not contract malware when doing illegal s***.

Care to explain otherwise?
