Russian state-sponsored malware hosted from servers in poor countries, hidden in satellites

This story, tweeted by Webroot today, may not seem too relevant to home users.  It seems as though the Kremlin is using satellites to store hidden methods in its cyberespionage, which could affect some American companies (such as computer vendors).  The cyberespionage is served from malware hosted mostly in Africa, especially in poor countries like Somalia or the CAR.  The story is here.

Although tracking this activity should be something the NSA knows how to do.  But not without spying again on American companies and sometimes users.
I guess we can ask, is Vladimir Putin a psychopath.
