Let's see: How much is it for renting a server in a low cost hosting company ?
You can't seriously think I was referring only to hosting costs.
They have to pay some serious money for a zero-day exploit that hasn't been and likely won't be patched. Then there's software development and maintenance...staff to go through gathered data... This is not some fly-by-night operation run on a shoestring budget. Sure the rate of return is going to be favorable, but it's not going to be inexpensive to run something like this.
