There's been some discussion about how much a bot-herder can make, this is a 16 yr old kid in New Zealand that had possibly infected 1.5 million computers, fair kudos to him for having the smarts, I'd fecking kill him for the nuisance he's caused though

If only Bill Gates had employed him Windoze might be a better system



Quote:
The Dutch telecommunications regulator OPTA has indicated that Owen Walker, a home-schooled computer whiz, was one of the botnet herders involved in the DollarRevenue scam and that botnet herders were paid a fee for each computer they infected 0.15 for each computer in Europe and US$0.25 for each in the United States.
