Submission + - Russia's Top ePayment Firm Is Top Rogue AV Player (krebsonsecurity.com)

The story uses the documents to show how ChronoPay has worked to corner the market for processing rogue anti-virus or "scareware," and the evidence indicates that ChronoPay executives created scareware companies from the ground up, paying for everything form their domain name registration to virtual hosting, to setting up the front companies and associated bank accounts and the 1-800 support lines for entire scareware operations that typically netted the company millions in revenue for each scam.
