More and more are hacking tools that target businesses in Dark Web

Dark

Lately, an increase in malware and hacking tools, which are available in the Dark Web, and more and more providers are offering means to target specific industries.

According to a survey conducted by Bromium cyber security company in collaboration with forensic surgeons at Surrey University, he found that Dark Web is rapidly turning into a major source of specialized malware.

In many cases, Dark Web vendors showed so good knowledge about email systems, networks, and even cyber security protocols, which raised security researchers' concern about some companies.

Mike McGuire, senior professor of Criminology at Surrey University, said: "What surprised me is the extent to which one could acquire malware targeting a business, even obtaining business data about the business."

Professor McGuire and his team came in contact with about 30 vendors on Dark Web sites, either through a Forum, via email, or via encrypted channels, and their findings were analyzed in the Behind the Dark Net Black Mirror.

According to the study, from 2016 there has been an increase of 20% on Dark Web sites that sell means for targeting companies.

Malware and distributed denial of service (DDoS) account for almost half of the attacks on these sites. A quarter of the listings offered malware and one in five provided DDoS and botnet services. Other common services sold for business targeting include espionage tools such as remote access Trojans and keyloggers.
