Security Expert Says, "Hacker-For-Hire Market Is Booming"

Security Expert Says,
"Hacker-For-Hire Market Is Booming"

It’s becoming cheaper than ever to buy hacking tools online.

Intelligence analysts found that business is booming in underground markets for Russian and other hackers, according to a new report released Tuesday by security firm Dell SecureWorks Inc.

Malware, which includes viruses and other software intended to disrupt computer users, is becoming “much cheaper and continues to offer a low barrier to entry for cybercriminals looking to steal information,” wrote the analysts, who scoured dozens of sites on the dark web over the past eight months.

Among the findings: Hackers are offering to steal personal emails from Gmail or Yahoo accounts for around $129. The report, which didn’t detail the extent to which the online hackers delivered on their promises, said one illicit service boasted that emails could be snatched without the victim noticing any suspicious activity. 
Offers to hack into corporate email accounts cost more: $500 per mailbox, the security firm said.


The findings come amid growing concerns among law-enforcement officials about the burgeoning hacker-for-hire market, which allows anyone with Internet access and a bit of money to potentially wreak havoc on computer networks. Hacking has become a way to facilitate all sorts of crimes, from illegal gambling to insider trading.

Tutorials for new hackers, such as how to send phishing emails, can be purchased online for $20 to $40, the report said. Remote access “trojans,” which allow cybercriminals to secretly control other people’s computers from a distance, can go for as little as $5 to $10.

The report suggests that hackers are operating more like regular businesses, with many Russian hackers touting 24/7 customer service. Analysts found hackers hawking their goods like a typical startup company. One ad offered “free-trial attacks” and “huge abilities.”

Standard goods for identity theft like credit card numbers, bank account credentials and passports are still popular on the dark web. Dell SecureWorks also found that hackers are now selling frequent flyer accounts and hotel points accounts. These points can be exchanged on legitimate websites for gift cards.

Hotels Are The Latest Hot Target For Hackers

Hyatt Hotels Corp. on Thursday said cyberthieves hit restaurants, front desks, spas and parking facilities at 250 hotels from Baku, Azerbaijan to Minneapolis over a four-month period last year.

The attack, which affected roughly 40% of Hyatt hotels in operation, was one of the largest in a rash of recent intrusions to hit the hospitality industry. Hyatt first disclosed the attack in December without providing details.

A few years ago, computer criminals were focusing their efforts on U.S. retailers with specialized software that exploited gaps at the cash registers. Now, they are turning to the lodging industry, taking advantage of uneven security at hotels and the hotel-based restaurants, spas and gift shops typically owned by other companies, people familiar with the incidents said.

Attacks have escalated in recent months and have caught up properties managed by brands that also include Starwood Hotels And Resorts Worldwide Inc. and Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc.

Credit-card and other data for millions of guests have been stolen. In some cases, the card information has been exposed for a number of months.
People familiar with the hotel breaches said that stolen card data have made its way onto the black market and are resulting in fraudulent transactions. The extent of that activity isn’t clear.


Visa Inc. alerted hotels last month about the potential threat from intruders. The notice said that the card network had confirmed the existence of three families of malicious software targeting the lodging sector.
Robert Habeeb, chief executive officer of First Hospitality Group Inc., which owns hotels branded with Hilton, Marriott and other names, said his head of information technology has been in frequent discussions with his brand partners about what steps to take to avoid breaches.

Even though he is unaware of any of his guests being affected, “we went back and increased our data-breach insurance coverage,” Mr. Habeeb said.
People familiar with the attacks speculate that cyberthieves are attracted to hotels in part because frequent business travelers rack up charges on trips and may be slower to spot unusual transactions than other card users.

Hotels also often keep multiple cards on file for their frequent guests to make checking in and out more convenient. In addition, many luxury properties store information about their guests, such as details about their family members and business associates or what activities they enjoy.

There is no evidence that this sort of personal information has been stolen, but security experts are concerned that thieves could resell it and potentially threaten the security of well-heeled guests.

Hyatt, providing new details Thursday of the intrusion into its systems, said it found malware designed to collect cardholder names, card numbers, expiration dates and security codes.
Most of the exposed cards were used at on-site restaurants, the company said. Although most of the exposure occurred between Aug. 13 and Dec. 8, Hyatt said the at-risk window began around July 30 at some locations.


Hyatt “took steps to strengthen the security of our systems in order to help prevent this from happening in the future,” said Chuck Floyd, global president of operations.
The breach disclosed by Starwood in November happened when the company was upgrading security features for its property-management computer system, according to people familiar with the matter.
Starwood said hackers stole an undisclosed amount of customer credit-card and debit-card information during a data breach that lasted nearly eight months and hit 54 locations, including some of its luxury hotels. Starwood, which is being acquired by Marriott International Inc., owns the Sheraton, Westin and W chains, among other brands.
The company said in November that malware infiltrated payment systems at in-hotel restaurants and gift shops, collecting customer names, card numbers, security codes and expiration dates.
A Starwood spokeswoman declined to comment.
Visa also has expressed concern about the vulnerability of vendors who set up payment systems for on-site businesses, such as restaurants and gift shops within the hotels. Such vendors, called “integrators,” sometimes use the same password for all of their clients, according to people familiar with the business.
Hilton disclosed a breach in November but didn’t provide specifics such as how many of its 4,500 world-wide hotels were affected. The company asked guests who stayed at its properties during certain dates in November and December of 2014, and from April 21 to July 27, 2015, to review their payment card statements for signs of fraud.
The focus on the hotel industry follows a spate of major data breaches that repeatedly exposed consumers, whether shopping at Target Corp., eating sesame chicken at P.F. Chang’s China Bistro Inc. or slurping a hot fudge sundae at International Dairy Queen Inc.
Cardholders aren’t responsible for unauthorized purchases, but they must scrutinize their bills for fraudulent charges and deal with other inconveniences if their card is replaced.
Gary Leff, a frequent traveler who favors Marriott and Starwood hotels, said he always closely reviews his credit-card statements for fraudulent charges due to the increase of breaches in recent years.
“It’s a world-wide battle that no one has solved,” said Mr. Leff, who writes a travel blog and is the chief financial officer for a research hospital in Virginia.
Hotels are considered vulnerable in part due to the fractured structure of the industry following years of corporate upheaval. Big hotel companies in recent years have moved away from hotel ownership, opting instead to collect management and franchise fees. That means most hotels with Hilton or Starwood or Marriott flags are owned by separate investors, not the brands.
The big brands require property owners to abide by certain standards, such as the size of a flat-screen television, but that isn’t always the case with security. Brands have been hesitant to impose guidelines for fear of legal liability if one of the hotels gets hacked, said Max Rayner, a partner at Hudson Crossing, a travel and hospitality consulting firm.
Henry Harteveldt, founder of travel research company Atmosphere Research Group, said some data breaches have persisted for up to a year before a hotel was able to detect them and warn customers.
“The bad guys are definitely looking for the lowest hanging fruit, the easiest target,” said Aleksandr Yampolskiy, chief executive of SecurityScorecard, a data-security company that is backed by venture-capital firm Sequoia Capital.
