Brazilian Hackers Offer to Teach Cybercrime Skills
Kaspersky Lab says courses are available in hacking, defacing, spamming and more.
According to Kaspersky Lab researcher Fabio Assolini, Brazilian hackers have begun offering courses in cybercrime.
"'To help new 'entrepreneurs' or beginners interested in a life of cybercrime, some Brazilian bad guys started to offer paid courses,' he reveals. 'Others went even further, creating a Cybercrime school to sell the necessary skills to anyone who fancies a life of computer crime but lacks the technical know-how,'" writes Help Net Security's Zeljka Zorz.
"A number of different courses are offered, and while some seem like legitimate ones -- how to become a designer, a Web designer, a hacker, a programmer -- others not so much as they offer to teach how to become a 'banker,' a defacer or a spammer," Zorz writes.
