An anonymous reader writes New research shows that the botnet TDSS/TDL-4, widely considered one of the largest and most sophisticated, can be rented via a Web storefront available to all comers. Kaspersky researchers found that the latest version of TDSS installs a file that defines the machine as a proxy for anonymous browsing, then home for awmproxy.net phones, which rents the proxies for rates of $ 3 per day to 300 $ per week. The curators of this service has even created a Firefox extension to help customers. Interestingly, AWMproxy said he supports payment via PayPal, MasterCard and Visa.
