I'd counter this thought with the literal use of the word lucifer meaning
bringer of light. Lucifer had his named changed to Satan the serpent, the
destroyer (yadayadayada) after his fall. Satanists do use the name of
Lucifer, but it can be used in a variety of ways. There is truly nothing
wrong with bringing light to the world, for most it just depends on the
brand name. I believe that most people, for whom Virus is a viable option,
will see this name as very apt.
