Underground cybercrime economy booming | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Underground cybercrime economy booming

During the reporting period, Symantec monitored 44,752 unique samples of sensitive information publicly posted on underground economy servers, which accounted for 10 percent of the total distinct messages. Sellers often publicly post samples of their goods in the channels on underground economy servers. These samples serve several purposes: to prove that sellers actually have the goods in their possession; to show potential buyers the quality of goods they can expect; to enhance their credibility, and; to allow users to validate the information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How about we take some of that $8 trillion intended to help the economy and help it by posting some fat rewards for the names of hackers. I think after a few public executions we might see cybercrime become less of a threat to our nation's economy.
