FireEye Reviews Cybercrime Underground and Eastern Europe Ties

Following the recent security breach at US retailer Target, FireEye has released a
blog
looking at stolen credit card data being sold on underground Russian-language forums.

As the cybersecurity company notes, the Target attack has been traced to an individual believed to be operating from the Ukraine.

The cybercrime networks flourishing in Eastern Europe are using an affiliate model known as ‘partnerkas’, which rely on a series of dubious relationships that allow them to profit from a variety of activities including spam, rogue pharmacies, fake antivirus, clickfraud, and ransomware.

Patnerkas rely on payment processing capabilities, bulletproof hosting, and underground marketplaces to carry out their operations and are reviewed in detail by FireEye researcher Nart Villeneuve in the blog.
