Unprotected computers turns into zombies under the control of the malicious hacker

A successful distributed denial-of-service attack requires the downloading of software that turns unprotected computers into zombies under the control of the malicious hacker. Should the owners of the zombie computers be fined or otherwise punished as a means of encouraging people to better safeguard their computers? Why or why not?
