What liability do I have if I make an opensource piece of malware (registered under MIT), and then someone takes it and uses it to infect hundreds of computers? Could I be taken to court for that? Or are they purely accountable?
If I could be held accountable for that, is there a license which would prevent this?
The duplicate is incorrect, as that is about paid program (I believe) rather than an open source program anyone can use. It's not like I'm writing the malware and giving it to people to use, I'm releasing the source for people to take a look and see how it works.
