Hackers Advertising, Selling Phishing Kits Via YouTube with Secret Backdoor (IB Times)


Cybercrime, like any other enterprise is a business, albeit an illegal one. Apart from targeting individuals, businesses and governments, cybercriminals also cash in by creating, using and marketing malware to other crooks. It appears however, that the age old adage of “honour among thieves” does not apply to cybercriminals these days.

Security researchers have uncovered cybercrooks advertising and distributing phishingkits, that come with how-to videos and links to additional information, to wannabe hackers via YouTube. The catch however is that the advertised kits come with a secret backdoor that sends all the phished data back to the author.
