(名詞) 引起或助長網路犯罪活動的網路應用軟體。亦叫做 cybercrime-as-a-service, crimeware-as-a-service 或 CaaS。
註：這種 something-as-a-service 的概念來自雲端運算 (cloud computing)，其線上應用程式 (如 Dropbox 和 Google Docs) 被稱為 software-as-a-service (SaaS)。
New versions of the ZeuS botnet code costs $3,000; Butterfly botnet code costs $900. Simplified botnets used in the rental and crime-as-a-service model are cheaper, such as Bredolab, starting at $50.

A worrying new phrase has entered the lexicon of cybercrime — Crime-as-a-Service (CaaS)...
CaaS has become a well-oiled machine, built on a wide network of players that fulfill specific functions.
