The dark web is full of shady purchase options. One which is gaining in popularity is the offer of ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS). Many hackers are now choosing to sell the software they have created instead of carrying out attacks themselves – and they’ve found willing buyers. Lured by the large ransoms splashed across the news, amateur hackers are purchasing monthly RaaS services, enabling them to target companies themselves. If successful, it is thought that the users share the ransoms with their RaaS providers. The growing popularity of this service further emphasises the need for impeccable cyber security systems for corporations and individuals alike.
