    I don't see how you can get in trouble for something like that. It's not like you are destroying someone's property. Easy to do a system restore.

    Not as bad as those people on Twitter/Facebook posting this and getting idiots to destroy their phones.

    There are actually laws against computer misuse and malicious software in many countries. In the UK for example there are these offenses:

    For something like this though I doubt the police are going to be booting off your door, however you might find you have action taken against you from youtube and earn your account banned.

    I would ask if people are really this dumb. But I already know the answer.

    It might sound great getting back at cheaters but it's really a childish idea to set out to damage someone else's system just because they shot you unfairly in a video game.

    Also you can't be sure actual cheaters get targeted and most likely the dumb and the gullible who probably never even cheated in an online game would end up downloading it and damaging their systems rather than the guy who shoots you on a regular basis with a perfectly working aimbot and that's the reason they probably don't need "yours" for.

    To be fair if you really want to set out a campaign against cheaters then things like public humiliation and server wide bans are most probably the best course of action.
