With all due respect John, they really should be pressing charges 
against the perp who owned the box in the first place AND their 
network admin who probably wasn't keeping the systems fully patched.

Somewhat the he who lives in glass houses ruleset IMO.  But then MO 
isn't worth, in court, any more than the electrons made to dance and 
convey this message.

A sad commentary on our times...
