Russian Business Network: On the Fly
(Page 1 of 4 )
In this first in a series of articles, we will look into how Cybersyndicates make money, how they have evolved over the years, and what, if anything, companies and users can do to stop them. We'll discuss the various crimes they have committed (and continue to commit), and why, for the most part, they have eluded authorities.
If I tell you their names, it conjures up images of the Matrix or some group of super-villains out to make billions of dollars, kill off government officials, and take over entire countries. And those images wouldn't be far off the mark. They go by the names of Flyman, Corpse, Smash, and ZoOmer. They work for organizations like the International Association for the Advancement of Criminal Activity, ShadowCrew, the HangUp Team, and the notorious Russian Business Network. And more likely than not, they have been inside your computer.
In this article we will delve into the Russian Business Network, the backbone of Internet criminal behavior, and offer a brief overview of who they are and what role they play in the grand scheme of things.
A caveat before you read any further: when you are finished with this series, I promise you will think twice before entering data into an online form again. If you would rather go on believing your firewalls and anti-virus protection are keeping you safe, go ahead and click that red X in the corner of your browser and pop in that first season of Battlestar Galactica you just bought on DVD. I promise that by the time you finish it, you'll have forgotten all about this article.
But if you want to take off the wool that the banking community has pulled over your eyes, and see the world as it really is, keep reading. And welcome...to the real world.
