Criminals Sell Hacker Toolkits for BofA on Dark Web

Michael McGuire, a criminology professor at the University of Surrey, posed a buyer on the dark web and discovered organized crime groups that were selling unauthorized network access to financial organizations. The crime group was selling fraudulent web pages, specific to Bank of America, that allow the buyer to phish customers and harvest their data. The toolkit and tutorial were selling for $11. Other companies being targeted include AT&T and Verizon. McGuire said, "if they were not already doing so, corporate cybersecurity teams ought to spend time monitoring the dark web to pick up signs of potential threats, such as data from their organizations already for sale or rogue employees willing to sell network access to others."
