  Yes. DShield data can be missued in this way. However, 
this basic principle works without DShield as well. Lists
of easy to crack/cracked hosts and data retrieved from them
(credit cards, passwords and so on) exist for a while now.
Check you favorite IRC chat room for details. DShield
does attempt to contact administrators of listed hosts, and
an emphazise is to spot threats early and device counter
measures and cleanup techniques for infected hosts.
