Couldn't he have made far more using malware on traditional Windows PCs? Easy to infect, goes undetected for long periods, stupider users, etc.? NASes seem a pretty obscure and limited target.

I see a lot of Windows infections but haven'tnoticed any that do mining. Most still seem to be spam botnets and password stealers.
