"I don't think virus writers shouldn't be allowed to rehabilitate and do something worthwhile with their lives," Cluley said. "But it jars with me that Towns has shown no regret for what he did, and that now his utterly irresponsible behaviour appears to have been rewarded. Will Towns be offering a token $5 compensation to all those he infected for the inconvenience he caused? I doubt it."
Utter bollocks. A RickRolling is a tiny price to pay to be informed of a security hole of that magnitude. Considering the dependency and the amount of vulnerable info that people carry on their phones these days, the 'victims' should send Towns $5.
