They've offered a bounty of $250,000 towards the capture of the folks responsible.
Hope it does some good.

And then since the thing is actually very well written from what I hear they will hire the person(s) as a programmer. (It's happened before. )
Yep I know that's happened before. Couple of major differences this go around.
There wasn't a bounty offered then. Microsoft is working with several internet security companies to combat the issue. Neither of which I can remember ever happening before. This thing goes beyond being a prank and exploiting a loophole in an operating system.

I think the only thing stopping the perpetrators from exploiting the infection is that doing so will point a path straight back to them.
