    Info The Hackers Economy - Facts & Figures

    Cyber crime these days is far more sophisticated, and continues to grow at a staggering rate. High-profile cybercrime is at an all time high, it is no longer a case of where they can "reverse-engineer" coding, it has gone in to the field of digital electronics.
    Combating the extent of what hackers attack is not easy, the figures below are from 2015 and are global figures.

    Social Security $1
    DDOS as a Service ~$7/hour
    Medical Record >$50
    Credit Card Data $0.25-$60
    Bank Account Info >$1000 depending on account type and balance
    Avg Cost per Org $15 Million
    Mobile Malware $150
    Spam $50/$500K emails
    Malware Development $2500 (commercial malware)
    Exploits $1000-$300K
    DarkWeb Transactions $60 Billion
    Facebook Account $1 for an account with 15 friends



    Total:
    Global Cybercrime Market: $450 Billion - $1 Trillion


    Notice Facebook are rated the lowest to a hacker, but multiply the figure by the number of Facebook searches per day, which is currently at 2 Billion per day! Those searches are mainly hackers using the search for people and email addresses, to hack their accounts.
    The most asked question on hack1ng on Google is: "how to hack a facebook account"?
    The chances of you finding anyone that will divulge that information is very low, because you can guarantee, its a teen!
    Most hackers just give them malicious links for asking such info... to teach them a lesson.

    In the InfoSec industry we have a saying "The adage is true that the security systems have to win every time, the attacker only has to win once.” — Dustin Dyke

    I would never use Facebook myself, with all the reconnaissance I have done on one that company over the years, you would not believe the sheer and unimaginable amount of your privacy that is placed online. Remember, Facebook also owns Instagram and WhatsApp - Yet, none of them are the worse contenders that leak your privacy, one App even knows your name, before you even signup for their services!




    The worse App out there is "SnapChat", I will reveal why in another article, and include another on Facebook including what goes on behind the scenes - you will be shocked!

    I write cyber security articles for businesses, I plan to cut some of them down and publish them on DF. Every article does go in to great detail.

    So, you think I am the same guy as the Bl4Ck0r4Cle - just because he posted the same figures on Cybrary.it. You need to check people out before assuming, what may look obvious. The Bl4Ck0r4Cle is well known on Twitter, by authors, journalists, US Reporters, ANONYMOUS, and many other people. He has a huge following, but I dont.

    If you are an Admin then check his IP address on here with mine, they will not be the same. Admins can see IP's on vBulletin scripts.

    I am on Cybrary.it, just ike about 1 million others but check the forums and you will see that we talk to one another, I certainly do not chat to myself. Check their knowledgebase, and you will see that there is articles relating to a new programming language. 4 people on the team including me and Bl4Ck0r4Cle.

    There is many big differences between him and me, firstly he is UK based and I'm not - but my VPN is in London, not linked to any ISP or leaking my DNS.

    There is only one person on these forums that knows who I am, and its none of you on this thread.

    I joined this forum for one reason, but as of yet I have not had any replies from the Admins. It is about the security of this website which has critical security holes, for some obscure reason no Admin has replied. I was asked by Bl4Ck0r4Cle to check the security of this website, because he said it is a "sittin-duck".

    lulz..
    "I thought you were full of shit, but maybe I was wrong?" Why would I be full of shit? I am not a writer of "Fake News" thats all MSM.

    If you are looking for fake news I can tell you I don't have any, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills.
    Skills I have acquired over a very long career.
    Skills that make me a nightmare to many people.
    If you give me your ID, I promise to only sell you only on the darkweb, and that'll be the end of it.
    lulz

    Define: CzarJunkie
    Originally derived from the russian word for somebody who pleasures their anus with a wooden spoon. But more commonly used now for any facination with anal pleasureing with any kind of kitchen utensil.

    The most recent case being an un named man from Leeds UK. Who was caught in the kitchenware department of a local store attempting to insert a Kenwood Chef Food processor into his back passage. This was only discovered when store staff follewed a trail of extension leads into the carpark where the man was found writhing pleasure whist trying to have sexual intercourse with the exhaust pipe of a 1993 ford mondeo.

    The shock, the horror! ��
