Starting a life of Internet crime is easy; in fact you’ve probably already doing it as far as the RIAA is concerned. Now that you’ve chosen to embark upon a new career, how are you going to get dirty, filthy, stinking rich? How do you become a millionaire? The tool of choice has got to be botnets. Building them is just the start. How do you monetize the tens or hundreds of thousands of machines under your control? Should you harvest confidential and personal information from the victims, or would it be more prudent to become a specialist service provider to other botnet operators? Which models work best, and how can you become a six-million-dollar man within a year?
