Following the news that a new website, ripper.cc is a new service cyber criminals are using to prevent themselves being ‘ripped off’ by fellow criminals, Kyle Wilhoit, Senior Security Researcher at DomainTools commented below how this will affect hacker’s accounts.
Kyle Wilhoit, Senior Security Researcher at DomainTools:
“Not surprisingly, scammers are going to scam each other. Because of that, a site like this is not surprising. There are several additional sites similar to ripper.cc, they are just foreign language oriented. Will there be a big difference made because of this site? Probably not. However, one thing that matters in these types of marketplaces is the age of your account. Some fallout will occur when shamed users are forced to delete their account, therefore losing any vouching power (for new members) and also losing the account age.”
