    "“I saw it wasn’t registered and thought, ‘I think I’ll have that’,” he is reported as saying. The purchase cost him $10.69."
    This is like a big namecheap ad. Only namecheap sells for $10.69 lol

    Too bad this wasn't caught prior to effecting the Asian and European markets. Nonetheless they did a great job by finding this in the coding and prevented a lot of US based businesses from being effected by this. Although next time, the creator of this malware will simply know to not make the same mistake.
