Dark web listings of malware on the rise: Study
There has been a 20 per cent rise in the dark net listings of malware targeting enterprises, warns a study.
The dark net is that part of the Internet which is inaccessible when using standard browsers like Google.
The study by cybersecurity company Bromium and researchers at the University of Surrey in Britain found that four in 10 dark net vendors are selling targeted hacking services aimed at FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 businesses.
The research provides details of first-hand intelligence gathered from covert discussions with dark net vendors, alongside analysis from a panel of global industry experts across law enforcement and government.
