It is impossible to know with any confidence without knowing more details,
but from the face of it, it is far from obvious to me that Mark Foster's
lawyer got this wrong.
(Meanwhile, this will make a great exam question some day.)
I agree, except it wasn't my Laywer.
You mean Matthew Kaufman.
Note the number of quotede layers. I made the mistake of removing the
quote-intro-line when I posted, apologies.

as a result of the delay)
So while I think you'd be justified in doing it, I think you'd find that
1) lots of people wouldn't change their configs at all, and 2) you might
find that your liability insurance doesn't cover deliberate acts.
Uhm. I don't follow?
I my experience, people who tell stories like this really just need to get
a better lawyer. I've had several lawyers contact us on things about this
lame and have found that that the one sentence reply letter is often the
Kiss my what?
Never hear from them again.
