When a superior gives you incredibly bad orders, and out of spite, you follow them to the letter, knowing the result is going to be disastrous.
Bobby: Don't change the formulas of this report. If you do, you're fired.
Frank: Whatever you say, boss.

Two weeks pass. Bobby calls Frank in to his office.

Bobby: You knew that report contained errors in its format. Why didn't you fix it, you shit?

Frank: Because you told me not to, you dick. It was malicious compliance.

A term used by governments that are broke to round up some extra cash from tradesmen and businesses for stupid inane paperwork breaches Can also be used to annoy people they think support an alternate government. May use varying guidelines between regions for extra effect.

a shitty company law preventing the use of pornography, etc. on a laptop/desktop owned by your employer.
"hmm im feeling a little devilish, ill look at some porn on my work comp, im at home on my own wi-fi connection so the boss can't catch me. (the next day at work) "COMPLIANCE VIOLATION!!! your fired!" says the boss (to the man that earlier looked at porn). This is usually caused by the company putting some shitty office watcher such as Trend Micro offiscan client.
