Did you mean small percentage of vulns "on the list" or vulnerable
If even a small percentage of machines are vulnerable, multiply by a
lot of machines and they get a lot of infected machines.
They can't easily control the inection rate, but they can control
the utilization rate. One thing they want is non rbl listed
zombies. This is a good tactic re infect many, list them, then
silence until needed.
Or set the rent for a non-listed machine higher, and try each victim
from a listed machine, if that doesn't get through, then use a
