Site offers hacking business

Security researchers have stumbled upon a website which offers hacking services for hire. The site,, probably hosted from Russia, controls a large botnet (network of hijacked computers).Clients can make use of this botnet to induce malware into other computers and networks. The site will charge the clients 20 cents per infected computer. According to security researchers, clie-nts can also limit the number of infections. For instance, they can ask the botnet to infect 500 PCs and pay $200. Of course, they can choose the malware. The site also provides the client with a bill with details of the IP addresses infected and the data stolen. It is all very professional.
