I couldnt agree more. Most spyware actualy exploits vulnerabilities to get the task of installing and connecting to its master complete.
What are the legal ramifications to making and hosting a page that installs spyware and using that installed software to infact SPY?

If it is a good worm then there is no reason to inform the owner of the
computer and get permission to run and/or install it, making it legal.
I don't understand why so many people tolerate spyware that is installed and
executed without permission. I think it should be prosecuted as a virus or
something. If the law needs to be changed then people should get the law
