Trusteer researchers have uncovered a professional calling service designed to assist cybercriminals.

"The business offers to extract sensitive information needed for bank fraud and identity theft from individuals," writes PCWorld's Lucian Constantin.

"The security company spotted an advertisement for making on-demand calls in English and other European languages to private individuals, banks, shops, post offices and similar organizations," Constantin writes. "At a cost of US$10 per call, cybercriminals were offered the possibility of obtaining the missing pieces of information they needed to pull off attacks."
