Analysts of the company Armor have discovered a new service on the Darknet. Hackers hack into bank accounts and sell stolen funds for as little as 10-12% of their real value in the BTC equivalent.

 

Hackers offer to send funds to both bank account and PayPal and with the help of Western Union. In one case, the buyer purchased $10,000 for $800, the report said.

 


 

Armor called the scheme one of the most popular proposals on the Darknet at the moment. A hacker himself is only engaged in hacking, and the buyer of funds is already engaged in laundering.

 

Also on the Darknet they traditionally sell bank account credentials. Customers of Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Lloyd's Bank and PayPal were among the victims, according to the report.

 

At the same time, bitcoin remains the most popular cryptocurrency of the Darknet economy.

 

Let us remind that personal data of users of the Huobi cryptocurrency exchange were sold on the Chinese Darknet markets - at least, that's how the sellers themselves claimed.
