The hacker group is recruiting bright minds across the world, enticing them with huge moneymaking opportunities.
Soon-to-be cybercriminals can now "rent" the NetWalker Ransomware strain. And it appears to be working.
Affiliates are enlisted to distribute the ransomware and infect victims in return for a 60-70% cut of ransom payments.
This becomes an intriguing proposition for tech-savvy individuals, especially those living outside US extradition treaties. Truly, how many businesses offer low or no-cost upfront and can provide millions in profits?!
In the last five months alone, NetWalker has generated $25 million in ransom payments to its Bitcoin wallets. That's $5 million per month! And these are only the wallets we know about.
When offered more money than a local doctor could earn, what's to stop a young person in Eastern Ukraine from joining the NetWalker team or other cybercrime group? It's a sad reality we face as many smart, young minds join the cybercrime underworld.
The good news is that these hackers can be stopped.
