The difference between Origin and a virus is, that Origin is a copyrighted product with an EULA that you accept on its installation. It's owned by EA. So they have some different rights than the creator of a virus. The creator of a virus or some other serious malware will never sue you for reverse engineering. EA perhaps will because Origin's EULA states:
Except, and only to the extent that may be permitted under applicable law, you may not decompile, disassemble, or reverse engineer the Application by any means whatsoever, or alter, modify, enhance, or create a derivative work of the Application.
Whatever this "applicable law" might be then…
