On Necessity

So this guy develops this tool that "automatically steals IDs of non-encrypted sessions and breaks into Google Mail accounts." He's an academic (of sorts) and so naturally he presents his findings to the general public so that Google can fix itself and so that we can all be more careful.

So far so good. Two weeks from now, however, he plans to release a pre-compiled easy to use version of this tool to the public. To which I respond: Is this really necessary? Is this the only way to prove a point, or does he just think it's funny when people's accounts get hacked?
