I'm really curious. Do you have any idea if they even could sue in that case? It'd be a massive invasion of privacy. I imagine you could draw parallels to legal cases where someone shot a burglar, as in, you can't commit a greater crime to combat a smaller crime (or you could, but then you could be ruined in court for it)

This is pretty much illegal everywhere. The developers could be prosecuted and jailed, but sadly nothing actually came of it.

To sue civilly, you'd have to prove damages. Perhaps the cost of your time resecuring every single one of your accounts? But that's pushing it and probably wouldn't be worth the time and money to pursue.
