Student Faces 10 Years In Prison For Trying To Sell Android Malware

I’m a little confused here. This kid made what sounds like some pretty sophisticated malware that basically leaves someone’s Android phone wide open, but he only priced it at $300? And he didn’t get a single sale?

Your typical Android malware, once installed, Dendroid spies on text message conversations, takes photos, and even records phone conversations آ— all unbeknownst to the user (of course). Culbertson admits that he attempted to sell the source code online, but he reportedly didn’t receive any offers.
