Is it legal to publish harmful, open-source software on Github?

Hello all!

I've been working on a ransomware project lately and, as I am always publishing my side-projects on Github, I was wondering if I am allowed to publish potentially harmful software on Github. Right now, I've added a disclaimer as it being a proof-of-concept and for academic/educational use only, but is this sufficient as to not be liable for its potential illegal use by others? After all, I'm the author of the code, to what extend does this make me responsible?
