xDedic - Over 70,000 hacked servers for rent

An interesting story, with few surprises for security aware people. Kapersky has the lead on this revelation -

"The researchers confirmed that the xDedic marketplace is run by a Russian-speaking group, it currently offers 70,624 hacked Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) servers from 173 countries."

Compromised web server sites are rented out for as low as $6, and span Government, University, and financial institutions.

If Kapersky undertakes to track them all down and try to get the owners to clean them up, they have a major challenge to face. Complacency.
