The dark web is flooded with offers to purchase corporate network access


There is a flood of interest in accessing corporate networks on the dark web, according to Positive Technologies.

In Q1 2020, the number of postings advertising access to these networks increased by 69 percent compared to the previous quarter. This may pose a significant risk to corporate infrastructure, especially now that many employees are working remotely.

“Access for sale” on the dark web is a generic term, referring to software, exploits, credentials, or anything else that allows illicitly controlling one or more remote computers.
