Security researchers have unpicked the business plan behind a botnet that serves as the backend for a DDoS-for-hire business

This is just not good at all, and something should be done! In chok, is what I am.

I take everything that source puts out with a grain of salt. On more than one occasion they have embellished the facts beyond recognition. And has been said the Chinese are not alone in the cybercrime business.

OMG, sorry Animal. I didn't know TheRegister was not to be fully trusted at all and I will ofcourse stop quoting them. Again sorry!

With high regards,

I'm a regular reader of TheReg, and would like to know more about anything which would tend to impeach their journalistic credibility.

My statements are from articles I saw several years ago and I no longer have the specific references. My opinion is mine alone and not meant to sway your own views. But I have ever since identifying the previously mentioned source having embellished facts, I no longer accept them at face value. Much like many many other sources on the web.
