It's more that they've lost territory, but are winning the war. You can't break the latest update on the Wii without owning specific, unpopular games. The old ones used incredibly common games or required no game at all, but how many people are going to buy an obscure game just to install a software hack?

You could buy a modchip for the same price, and that will always work.

It's changed a few times, but it has essentially just been broadcasting the same thing for decades, excepting the spoken word transmissions.

Subtle encoding are completely useless for number stations, so it's unlikely it does that anyway. The point of number stations is that they broadcast to huge areas using shortwave, in easily recordable formats. This way, agents in foreign territory can use basic shortwave radios that can be found anywhere, and decode the messages using the one-time pads they are issued with. This method of encryption is impossible to break, and can be done with essentially no equipment.

I've also got to question the sense of naming a botnet like this. Sure it's memorable, but what's to stop Chuck Norris from taking legal action against the researchers who coined the name? I certainly wouldn't want my name associated with a criminal enterprise.

Good day to avoid cops. Crawl to work.
