Re: It is happening now
Seriously.. you expect a true Blackhat to pay for cloud services? No, it's far cheaper to piggyback a Raspberry PI onto the motherboard of a dozen refurbished desktop PC's and return them to the wild. Stick in a half decent graphics card, label it "suitable for gaming" and they also tend to land in places with a nice unlimited fibre connection. Scanning the wifi card periodically we quickly learn when all cellphones have left the house for work then kick the pig till the fans squeal and we're making bacon on your budget.
