The Black Market Report

In the web’s darkest corners, malware, hacking services, stolen data and more are changing digital hands every day. These underground marketplaces are where threat actors and cyber criminals buy and sell the tools and information they need to commit all kinds of fraud and all manner of attacks.

In Armor’s new annual Black Market report, our researchers offer a look into the world of cybercrime that many Web users do not see. At Armor, our Threat Resistance Unit (TRU) research team monitors the cyber underground to keep an eye on threat actor activity. For three months, experts with TRU compiled and analyzed data to create a snapshot of the criminal marketplaces where stolen hotel rewards points are purchased, compromised bank accounts and credit cards are sold and cybercrime-as-a-service is a hot commodity.

Read our report, and learn how these markets function, how to defend your information online, and what everything from malware to your social media accounts are worth to hackers.
