One of these days hackers are going to turn off all the lights in the world at one time

Probably it will be worse than that, scriptkiddies will overtake this role…

Scriptkiddies? :disagree:
This “business” is run in a professional manner by criminal organisations.

The scareware guys even run hotlines and live-chats to “support” their victims (http://www.heise.de/security/meldung/Scareware-jetzt-mit-Live-Support-1037280.html - in german or http://www.h-online.com/security/news/item/Scareware-now-with-live-support-1037622.html - in english).
