Come one, come all, how much do you want for this 2.5mbit hacked machine? We all know it’s out there - the underground market for hacked machines. There’s an interesting thread brewing on sla.ckers.org about this topic - one that I find kinda disturbing. Yes, if you ever wondered if those stories everyone told about a black market for hacked machines was true, rest assured, it is.
The prices are interesting, especially given the number of vulnerable services out there. Also, the fact that eGold is the currency of choice confirms what I’ve been told as well. That doesn’t really surprise me, there’s very few good way to transfer money safely internationally (and mostly anonymously). Interesting and scary read, if you aren’t already familiar with this stuff.
