Loosing trust on Certificates (CAs)

Just recently, observing that many malwares associated with Signed Digital certificates.I started noticing with Stuxnet with Realtek certificate, recently CA Comodo issued some certificates without authenticating the originator (WTF..) and now Zeus botnet with signed Certificate moking at security guys naming it as “DetectMe!”

Zeus Signed CA

I am wondering WTF CAs are doing..

Why should one pay to get certificate while they give it easy to everyone.
