    Um, I think that could turn out to be a Very Bad Thing(tm)...posting 
the IP address could be seen as inviting attacks (after all, we've just 
*said* that it's infected with CR(I or II), and details on exactly what 
backdoors it installs can be found all over the internet).

   I think most people will agree that the majority of non-person entities 
(businesses, organizations, etc) will tend to come down hard on individuals 
penetrating their network, regardless of what the reason; and my 
understanding of current law is that there's no intelligence behind it: 
whoever has the most money, wins (re: US Govt vs Dmitri Sklyarov; RIAA; 
etc.)  I can only think of a few instances in current history (esp. in 
internet law) where the spirit of the law took priority over a strict 
reading of it.

    Maybe I'm being overly paranoid, but to quote a website: "I'm allergic 
to jail."  :-]
