Cybercrime, Marketo presses data theft victims emailing their competitors

Bkeeping Computer: Marketo presses data theft victims emailing their competitors. The marketplace offers them sample packs of the stolen data

Marketo is pressing victims, emailing their competitors and offering sample packs of the stolen data. It has been detected by Bleeping Computer cybersecurity experts. Cybercrime gangs started to create dedicated data-theft extortion marketplaces that exist solely to sell stolen data. The data are obtained through the marketplace’s own attacks, from other threat actors, or by collecting files released in other attacks, such as ransomware or website data breaches. The stolen data is sold for as low as $100 to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the marketplace. In this framework, Marketo is now taking it a step further and emailing the victim’s competitors to offer samples of the stolen data and entice them into purchasing it.
