Trend Micro has published a report on Russian cybercrime black market. It follows up to the previous report from 2012. The report notes the development of the cybercrime economy into a specific industry field with developed division of tasks and based purely on market principles. Trnd Micro monitors the prices of various products and services on the black market in the past two years ranging from trojans and exploit kits to DDoS attacks, whole botnets, accounts on various servers and credit card details. The main observation is that the price of most items has decreased by about 50% in general reflecting increased supply. In connection with better customer service and support it makes the cybercrime area more accessible to newcomers with less capabilities both in terms of money and technical prowess.
