Re: Like Mad Men for Cybercrime
Thanks Michael.

Much agreed; the vast supply of services and products available for attackers is amazing, and as time passes it only gets more specialized and adapted to cybercrminals' needs.

For me the key point here is actually quite optimistic - as overwhelming as it might feel, these underground markets and service providers are an amazing intelligence collection opportunity. 5 years ago cybercriminals might have been less sophisticated and had less readily available resources, but we defenders now have an ability to tap into the same stream of data and exploit it to our own good.

Like Mad Men for Cybercrime
Great article by Raveed Laeb on professional branding by cybercriminals. The recent Maze ransomware RaaS site looks like it was designed by an ad agency, digital black markets offer tools in carding shops that let buyers check the balance and usablility of stolen cards, and there are many professionally produced video tutorials to teach script kiddie hackers. The fact so few crybercrimes are fully investigated, let alone prosecuted, means this business will only get more sophisticated and pervasive.
