Well, I suspect that the black-hats are simply
following the money in this case.

The evidence indicates (to me at least) that
whatever means yeilds them a more attractive
return on their efforts is the path which they
have chosen to exploit (more bang for the buck,
so to speak).

with Symantec as regards an increase in spam and
information theft schemes, but the other seems off to
me.  What do you make of it?
