Is Deer.io Heaven for Cyber-Crime?

Cybercrime criminals look to be assembling in one-stop online shop of web business. According to Digital Shadows, a threat firm of intel, usage of sites such as Deer.io prove that blockades to entry are constantly being reduced for cybercrime.

Deer.io, a shop of Russian language, is hosted on the darkside.global, which is a URL that is associated to cybercriminal Tessa88 that has spread leaked database of different social networking websites including Linkedln and MySpace.

Deer.io outlet presents outsourced online shop that is all-in-one: providing website design (taking into account WordPress-like templates), providing hosting, as well as payment handling (Yandex Money, QIWI and Webmoney). The shop also provides DDoS protection to the would-be franchises, along with promise of offering security and anonymity.

Infosecurity-magazine.com posted on July 27th, 2016, stating that the site was noticed as being advertised on popular underground cyber-crime and hacking forums, like AntiChat, Xeksek, Exploit and Zloy, raising doubts that organisers might be willing to deliberately ignore to few activities and listings.

Besides the shop of Tessa88, Digital Shadows mentioned that the crooks used shops of Deer.io to sell the social media bots for spam, and thus boosting the follower counts, compromised accounts of social media, along with stolen accounts, a category including everything from financial and banking services to credentials of Uber.

Deer.io provides services like technical hosting that includes security and anonymity, DDoS protection; things which hackers having slight or zero technical expertise frequently struggle to arrange by themselves. Digital Shadows says that, thus providing Deer.io is prone to be exceptionally appealing to users having low-technical capabilities.

Digital Shadows further claims that Dark Web is spreading numerous services to Open Internet, which is known as one-stop-shop of all cyber criminals' types, and Deer.io is just one of them.

Digital Shadows does not agree. Underground forums of hacking are famous for their home-cooked adverts that are running, normally promoting various other cybercrime services and products. Automatic payment technique that is available for the Yandex Money, Webmoney and QIWI - allows transactions to happen 24/7 without having continuous attention of vendor.
