Amputate a hand I say!

That'll cut down the rate at which they can create more malware, and prove somewhat of a deterrant at the point they have to do CTRL-ALT-DELETE

I think the penalty for writing a computer virus is to be infected with a real virus... Now that's a deterrent.

Honestly... Two years in jail? In a white collar, minimum security vacation? You know they get conjugal visits in there?
