Just learned about bitcoin from dealing with ZeroAccess Worm. Curious about this?

So I got a notice from my company's internet provider that they have detected ZeroAccess worm activity on our internet circuit so I did some research on what ZeroAccess does. I found out it is a worm that takes over millions of machines to steal their processing power to mine bitcoins. Apparently generating millions of dollars in bitcoins for the operators. This is the first time I have heard of bitcoins. But it made me wonder do worms like ZeroAccess severely threaten bitcoins economy? Since they are producing so many coins from stolen processing power, that this may create inflation or other problems for bitcoin?
