One day in a dark, ominous tunnel in Idaho, Frank decided that he wanted to take over the world.
Now I'm going to buy a new lawn mower so that I can finally cut my extremely overgrown grass...
So, using his knowledge of evil and experience with computers, thanks to his day job at Microcenter, Frank created his own botnet army, a network of computers that are corrupted with malware and controlled by a botmaster.
Yes! Thousands of credit card numbers... These fools don't even know they are part of a botnet that is stealing their data!!
He corrupted thousands of devices with a malicious software disguised as a harmless game about dragons.
Yes. This will do. You should have protected your device with anti-malware software. All of you had devices in my botnet empire!
Once people had downloaded this software, Frank had access to their data.
Frank had gained access to thousands and thousands of credit card numbers. Frank, just a typical monster from Idaho, was now extremely rich. Really rich.
Now Frank lives in a mansion in Delaware with his mom. His favorite thing to do is swim in money and taunt his victims about the importance of downloading anti-malware software to prevent attacks like his.
