The Hacker Mafia

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Nowadays writing exploits and software to assist in spreading malicious code can be a very lucrative business.
Quote:
It's something out of a Mario Puzo novel, interpreted by Neal Stephenson. Criminals, presumably operating out of Russia, hire qualified programmers to create exploits for recently patched vulnerabilities not just in Microsoft Windows, but in applications such as Apple QuickTime as well. The criminals then sell this package of exploits as a tool to others who then install the necessary code on servers around the world.

Excellent article... maybe I should post this in the front of the shop and smack customers with it... "Hey... how'd that virus get on here anyway?"

Russia, yeah maybe, I know Romania and the Baltics are big in this area too(of writing exploits and controlling bot nets, etc..). The only people they can ever get though are the script-kiddies. Nice article though.

Yeah Russia is WORSE than romania, ukraine, etc. when it comes to these things. It is a country saturated with computer programmers/hackers and criminals

There's just no jurisdiction on it there, which is among the reasons why so many programmers/criminals reside there.

Ya they have a low chance of being caught in those countrys. I had a friend tell me in canada that some companys pay to have thier rivals hacked or data stolen probly happens all over the usa but just stays very hidden.
