Re: Hacking: Supply Exceeds Demand ?
@Technorati, I am with you on how fascinating it is to see the pricing structure. It really does illustrate just how bad things are and how cyber crime is now a business sector of its own.

Re: Regional pricing
My guess on Asia system prices would be the reliability and/or value of the identity.

Much of Asia still has very limited (slower) connectivity.  Another factor is lack of reliable power in many large portions of the region.
Apply the factor that many Asian system owners still run older system platforms that are prone to failures or simply way too slow to be useful and you have a situation where running any cyber-ops can be too frustrating to pay for.  Don't get me wrong, there are still powerful systems in that region, but not the numbers that western regions may have.
A key indicator  in that region would be that there is no mention of a 10,000 system package in Asia.  It may be too much to even ask to try to get that there.

Regional pricing
Considering the pricing chart showing such cheaper infections for systems in Asia, I wonder if a focus on improving security over there would have a knock on with the rest of the world? Clearly it's the lowest common denominator when it comes to secure systems.

Hacking: Supply Exceeds Demand ?

The price chart of Hacking Cost is really fascinating.   I have never seen it itemized like this.  And I must say I thought the prices would be higher, but I guess there is a glut in the market now.
