What's in it for the creators of malware?

Hello,

 

If you take a look at some of the US FTC or DOJ press releases involving malware operators, they have often made tens of millions of dollars through their creations.

My thoughts about malware hackers and spammers is that if they'd spend just 50% of the time they waste on these negative, destructive pursuits on legal endeavors, they'd probably make just as much, if not more, money. Unfortunately, part of the thrill for these folks is the illegality of what they do.
