Re: Very interesting ... not surprising
Hi Sara,

experts at TrendMicro already published an excellent report on Chinese Mobile Underground that probably is the segment more prolific in the Chinese black market.

I anticipate you that also Brazilian underground is very prolific ... 

so stay tuned waiting further reports.

Warm regards

Re: Very interesting ... not surprising
@securityaffairs  I'm glad that you're not surprised by the findings, but I expect that a lot of people WILL be. It seems that many people -- even those in the security community -- are confused by the very idea that there are hackers in China who are motivated by money, not nationalism.

Very interesting ... not surprising
The report, as usual, is very interesting and full of precious data. I'm not surprised for the findings of the study, financially motivated attacks will continue to increase also behind the Great Wall.

Chinese underground is very prolific (as the Russian one), and technological evolution of the country will advantage the scaring escalation of criminal activities in China.
