Hacker Pleads Guilty To Aiding Online Break-Ins

I don't understand why hackers do this kind of stuff. Risking jail and huge fines just to make a couple hundred bucks is just insane.

Crocker and other Darkode hackers would then sell access to affected computers to people seeking to send out commercial messages. They were periodically paid between $200 and $300 for every 10,000 active computer infections. Crocker faces up to three years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both, the statement said. Sentencing is set for Nov. 23.
