Security Report

A December 2014 security report finds that the internet’s underground hacker economy is booming. This economy is doing so well that it’s becoming a buyer’s market. Dell SecureWorks December 2014 report, Underground Hacker Markets (PDF), is more of the same. “The most significant difference between the current hacker underground markets and those of 2013, is that the markets are booming with counterfeit documents to further enable fraud, including new identity kits, passports, utility bills, social security cards and driver’s licenses,” mentions the 2014 paper (source TechRepublic).
