For example, there is a whole project tutorial on how to build one, as well as plenty of examples of people writing their own.

If open source software (such as the above) was taken by a bad actor and actually used (such as GoBot2), would the author of the original code be legally responsible for anything?

Secondly, would disclaimers such as "This project should be used for authorized testing or educational purposes only." actually hold up in a court, if a developer was prosecuted?

  • Yes, I think that also asks the question in a more concise way, thanks – psidex Jun 15 '20 at 22:04
