Longish interesting article on zdnet about a malware gang that was recently convicted of fraud and scamming people out of money.

The Bayrob malware gang's rise and fall: The story of how a talented computer science student and his friends created and ran a multi-million dollar botnet...
A graduate of one of Bucharest's top mathematics and computer sciences college, Danet won several international computer science contests, even ranking third in an ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) edition, and ranking high in many others.
According to Romanian TV station Kanal D, in 2008, Danet was elected the coach of Romania's National Computer Science Team, even though he was still a university student.
"He could have worked anywhere he wanted for the same money he made as a hacker," our source said over the phone when describing Danet's programming skills. "I still can't believe it after all these years."
