Looks like FBI doing well by taking down hacker platforms Big Grin

Quote:The FBI on Tuesday shut down Deer.io, a Russia-based platform catering to cybercrooks that offered turnkey online storefront design and hosting and a place where they could sell and advertise their wares, including ripped-off credentials, hacked servers, hacking services, gamer accounts and more.

Earlier this month, the bureau nabbed the guy they think was running the show: 28-year-old Kirill Victorovich Firsov, whom the FBI arrested on 7 March 2020 in New York City. He’s been federally charged with unauthorized solicitation of access devices, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, though maximum sentences are rarely handed out.

Deer.io was a top market for stolen accounts: a place where crooks could buy and sell credentials for hacked accounts siphoned off of malware-infected computers, PII, and financial and corporate data.

The FBI’s investigation included a Deer.io shopping spree. Earlier this month, agents made these buys:
  •     About 1,100 gamer accounts, including usernames and passwords, for under $20 in Bitcoin. Those accounts often have linked payment methods that hackers can use to make purchases on the real owners’ dime.
  •     About 999 individual PII accounts for about $170 in Bitcoin.
  •     On the same day, it bought another 2,650 accounts for about $522 in Bitcoin. That bought them names, dates of birth and US Social Security numbers: all the data you need to do identity theft and pull off financial fraud.

Wa Salam Alekum
* Thankful to Allah *
