    Interesting article. I suppose that it was inevitable, really.

    I wonder how you pay for a trojan or a list of future victims?
    Is payment done by creditcard and are they just using some stolen cards/numbers or is there honour amongh thieves? :doubt:

    You can simply pay by a credit card, all you have to is to make sure, that you do not have an infected PC. ;)
    Well, creating a malware, "for testing purposes", is not a crime, but putting it to a use is a criminal act, including its selling. :)
    Like 25-year old Li Jun, who has written Fujacks worm, and sold it for $12,500 was now sentenced to four years in prison - article.

    Very interesting.

    I had a difficult time getting over the fact that you use to buy "Trojans" for an entirely different reason. ;) Now Trojans in modern time has two meanings.

    My how times have changed. :rolleyes:

    Now everybody can get malware and use it to pest other people, if they are angry with them. Not a good development.
