The Dark Web Monster

The Dark Web MonsterWhen looking for a job, usually you would check one of the many job hunting sites you see in commercials or circle ads in newspapers (at least at one point you did). Some people do something very similar… but on the Dark Web searching for an illicit job. Many job postings on the Dark Web seem like normal job ads. But when you look closer you will notice that advert for a driver not only needs the person to drive but also transport drugs. The driver would make $1,000 for a week of work, not including the living expense compensation. One of the more lucrative opportunities on the Dark Web job market is the corporate insider. The most common target is financial employees who, in one example, are offered $3,150 to get a loan or increase cash withdrawal limits on a card. Postal workers are also targeted to steal packages.
The Dark Web is lucrative for those willing to risk their job and possibly their freedom for money. Be careful of both insiders and the wide array of illicit software sold there.https://www.darkreading.com/threat-intelligence/inside-the-dark-webs-help-wanted-ads/d/d-id/1333066
