In 2012, we started the “A Peek Inside a Boutique Cybercrime-Friendly E-shop” series, in response to the emerging market segment largely driven by novice cybercriminals relying on ubiquitous E-shop templates to sell their fraudulently obtained assets.

In this post, I’ll profile one of the most diversified (in terms of quantity and type of fraudulently obtained assets) boutique cybercrime-friendly E-shops I’ve come across since the launch of the series.

Although the total amount of 658 compromised accounts isn’t a staggering number for the time being, this E-shop remains the market leader in the series of posts profiling this emerging market segment. Although the E-shop is constantly rotating and re-introducing new domains to stay online, it continues to maintain the same customer base, with new customer acquisition practices taking place primarily through spamvertising.

Consider going through related posts profiling the activities of more E-shops selling access to compromised accounts:

We’ll continue monitoring this emerging market segment and post updates as soon as new developments emerge.
