Security experts uncover one-stop botnet marketplace

Researchers have uncovered a fully-functional marketplace for the building and selling of botnets.

Security firm Finjan said that the site allows criminals to obtain everything from malware and data, to networks of infected PCs.

Yuval Ben-Itzhak, chief technology officer at Finjan, described the new site an “eBay for stolen data”.

“It is basically a hacker-to-hacker platform to provide everything you want, ” he said. “You do not need to go elsewhere. You get everything you need to do the business.”
