Hi, first of all note I'm new to this forum and I'm not sure this is the right forum to post, if it isn't I'll preciate if a mod would move it. Basically, I'm having an ethical dilemma. Everything started 2 months ago, me and a friend(e-friend actually) decided to develop a botnet for cloud computing(not anykind of spam, ddos attacks or anything of the like). The network was to be used by me, him and 2 persons I know need to make some really CPU intensive calculations and have no place to perform them. Due to personal problems I'm in need for some serious quick cash. I've got relatively short time to get it so I started looking into BH stuff and ways of making money online(did some stuff in the past, but nothing too serious, the maximum I've got was 30 bucks before getting a lot of PPC accounts banned). Today, I was finishing the design of the network tophology and communication protocols of the botnet when it hit me. I could use the botnet to earn money. Possibly, enough to solve my problems. I could for example, join the bidvertiser referral program(they pay 10$ when your referral earns 10$ and another 40$ when the referral gets 50$) and setup the network to create fake traffic to different add-filled blogs(just read about this in this forum). This way I generate apparently random traffic and clicks while maintaining a natural CPR of 3-5%. All clicks would come from different IP's and it would be coodinated by some pseudo-authoritative bot on the network. The problem with this is that I'm a person with very high morals and ethical values and I'd hate someone to fuck my adds or stuff my cookies or whatever method I may choose to use. Besides, the network was specifically designed for good purposes. Not to perform different kinds of fraud. So, according to you, what do you think I sould do? In practical terms, I could have a working(but heavily shaved) version of the bot by sunday, so I could start propagating the bot on monday, give it a 2 week period for it to grow big enough and in the mean time, I could program and test the nessesary plugins to actually make money. PD: In the legal side, the network won't be big enough to be noticed(I'll set a maximum bot number of 10k), and if it gets noticed, I'll issue a network deactivation command and problem solved. Thanks for your input.
