Hydrated Wombat (1314267) writes "I have run across a number of malware distributing sites that have very insipid programs, including the wretched onlinexpscanner.com (don't go there), and those sites surely envelop a large number of innocent web users: what actions can be taken against sites such as that? If governments have no authority to stop these sites, do they have the authority to punish any ordinary citizen or group of citizens from attacking those who threaten the public? I know public education can fight malware some, but I don't think most ordinary users have enough discernment to protect themselves."
