It’s the holiday season and you and I aren’t the only ones looking for bargains online.

Cyber criminals are using underground marketplaces to pedal, “illegal goods and services. Stolen data, compromised online accounts, custom malware, attack services and infrastructure, fraudulent vouchers, and much more.”

According to new analysis from Symantec, “in 2007, stolen email accounts were worth between US$4 and $30…Today, you can get 1,000 stolen email accounts for $0.50 to $10.  The latest pricing is a good indication that there is now oversupply and the market has adjusted accordingly.”
