Thanksgiving for hackers
Ever wondered why the bad guys continue throwing malware in your direction? The obvious answer is the correct one: because they make money from doing it. On Thanksgiving Day, as all others across the year it would seem, they can be thankful for the high profit to be raked in from using readily available malware purchased within the dark market. Kaspersky Lab researchers have been doing the math, and their figures suggest that when comparing the cost of the most common hacker tools with the cold cash stolen using them the profit is around 20 times greater than the outlay.
