    A short interview with a developer of MPack.

    Besides the self-justifying and flawed analogy to manufacturing amunition, endless rationalizations, and the belief that they are not 'real' criminals, a curious warning to use the Opera browser to avoid being a victim of MPack.

    Interesting read.
    I thought the mention of Opera was curious also.

    Well, people who make landmines, IEDs, RPGs, etc. don't think they are "bad" people.

    If the money keeps flowing in, they will keep creating them.

    Lol, this guy is funny, maybe a amount of maximum 5% uses Opera.
    50-60% IE, 30-40% Firefox, 5-10% Mozilla, Netscape and others.
