    Want access to a government server? An online black market is selling access to thousands of hacked servers for as little as US$6.

    Known as xDedic, the market has a catalog of over 70,000 compromised servers for sale, Kaspersky Lab said Wednesday.

    The servers are in 173 countries and used by governments, businesses and universities. The owners likely have no idea they’ve been hacked, the security firm said.
