“Good news/bad news? The amount of stolen data on the dark web is now so vast that malware kits sell for $10 or less.”

Good news/bad news? In a recent report titled “The Evolution of Cybercrime,” HP Wolf Security says a team of its investigators and researchers from Forensic Pathways conducted a three-month study of the dark web and cybercriminals while analyzing over 35 million cybercriminal marketplaces and forum posts.
Amongst many findings, they reported that sophisticated cybercriminals and organizations are now selling malware kits to amateur hackers for less than $10! The good news is that the dark web is becoming over-run with stolen data; the bad news is that any amateur hacker can now get professionally designed and tested malware kits for a pittance.
