I agree that the ethical and legal ramifications need to be examined closely.  Here's my thoughts regarding gaining access to infected computers...

Could something like the good samaritan law be invoked?  A passing computer appears sick.  Are you not obligated to fix it if you know how?  

Would gaining access to a computer for the purposes of fixing a security hole be considered any worse than putting fluoride in someone's drinking water to insure they don't get cavities?
