Busted Botmaster: "it's immoral, but the money makes it right"
From June 2004 to June 2005, Ancheta, who used the online nickname resili3nt, allegedly made about $60,000 in commissions by surreptitiously installing a modified adware program, known as a "clicker," on the infected PCs. The payments came from adware companies including Gammacash.com and Loudcash.com (now known as Zango), which pay a fee to affiliates for referring traffic or getting Internet users to install their adware.
