> Screwed? Unless I tell it to save passwords, I really doubt that Firefox on my phone is storing my bank login credentials. And any particular session cookie will expire pretty quickly. I don't think existing phone manufacturers have gotten this as wrong as they suggest.
It was actually a joke to help wake people up after lunch. :-) I should have clarified that they were screwed because their phone's were already rooted anyway. ;-)
> I'm not quite sure how to parse that. Is it "between $8 and $90 per 1000 bots, depending on the total quantity"? Those numbers are strangely specific for covering such a large range. Or was "between $80 and $90" the intended interpretation, which could make sense if observed averages are within that small range.
Strangely enough, it actually is $8-$90 per 1k. It is a large range and there is a number of reasons for it; quality of the botnet client, size of the botnet being leveraged, popularity of the botnet in the news and geographic location/prevalence.
