Best not to speculate as there appear to be a couple of issues here
Sad really if the monitoring software was compromised by a Trojan

Sad but understood.

Here's some more on the issue:

No single issue, as expressed by the media and witnesses, should have produced such tragic results. Researchers will probably focus on a catastrophic engine failure/fire that disabled flight control surfaces or connections. They will examine whether those factors plus insufficient airspeed, negative cross-over effects, wing stalls, maintenance, corporate governance and operating procedures contributed in causing the aircraft to veer off its path and crashed.

No single issue,.....
These days, Pilots are taught psychology relavent to flying. They call it 'Human Factors, Performance and Limitations' and 'Crew Resource Management'. I haven't looked up the precise latest statistics, but over time, mechanical failures as a cause of accidents has fallen dramatically. When HFPL and CRM training was introduced, that too had a very positive impact on safety. However, at about year 2000, the incidents caused by the pilot or other crew, stopped reducing.

Most accidents have no one single cause, but are a result of a chain of events that lead to the accident. The training is designed to identify the 'chain' and 'break it' Have we reached the design limit of the pilot?

Thanks for sharing that information
As for the question, economics is now the new buzzword
Here's some more info on the accident - to be taken with a grain of salt :

There were previous instances of this problem in preceding flights archived in the mainframe/maintenance computer which would have flagged the aircraft to further inspections. They did not come up on the computer and a MEL procedure was put in place to pass the rectification of the problem to another MX station.

The temporary procedure left the configuration warning horn inoperative. The pilots missed the flaps and slats on their check list which was interrupted by a radio call. When they picked back up on the check list they started after the flaps and slats auctioning. When they applied take off power the warning horn did not sound to indicate improper configuration because the circuit breaker was pulled. The rest is history.
