Symantec researchers say they’ve stumbled across a “licence agreement” written in Russian that says anyone who distributes a piece of malware without the hacker’s permission will be penalized — by telling companies like Symantec!

“We know they can’t actually enforce it, and they probably wouldn’t try,” a Symantec guy said. “What’s funny is they put more effort into their EULA (end-user license agreement) than traditional software companies might.”

Other hackers promptly responded by redistributing the software without permission. Ain’t no fury like a hacker scorned. No, really, there ain’t no fury!
