1. Most of these bots are probably zombie infections, using resources 
paid for by someone else.

2. These bots use CPU, memory, and bandwidth, which is how these 
providers make their money.  The more you use, the more money they make. 
  Wondering why they don't take measures to stop it is like wondering 
why Exxon hasn't started building Tesla Supercharger stations everywhere.
