QOTD on Industrialized Malware

Malware is "becoming 'industrialised', with an underground economy growing up around it. The malware used to infiltrate target computers is professionally packaged and sold online, often with licence agreements and support contracts; and would-be criminals can rent the computing resources they need to engineer an attack from owners of 'botnets' – vast networks of compromised machines that can be controlled remotely." -- Jessica Twentyman, in the Financial Times
