As far as the physical universe goes, we know of no evil that has occurred outside the Solar System. But we know of many goods outside the Solar System—the beautiful and complex arrangements of stars and galaxies. So, as far the physical universe and our knowledge of it goes, evil is a purely local problem, isolated to an almost infinitesimal portion of our galaxy, which is an almost infinitesimal portion of the whole cosmos.
Of course, that doesn't solve the problem of evil. We should not count values by size. If a galaxy doesn't contain any life, while it may have significant value as a complex physical object, it would nonetheless probably be worth destroying it to save one human life. (However, that I feel the need to insert the "probably" is interesting. And notice that galaxies outnumber people, by our best estimates.)
