Jealousy, nosiness, self esteem issues; whatever the motivation, or selling points – an online service discovered by PandaLabs promises to hack any Facebook account of your choice for $100, which is payable to this group through Western Union.
PandLabs has made it clear, after testing this service, that this is a real service which provides real results. As is usual with this type of service, Panda believes that it is “ likely that the cybercriminals behind this operation are members of an Eastern European Internet mafia” organization.
A word of caution – those individuals who are motivated to take advantage of this offer need to consider the consequences. And the consequences can be severe.
Luis Corrons, Technical Director of PandaLabs has some advice that might dissuade those who would consider using such a service “ Once an intruder hacks into a Facebook account, all personal data published on the site can be stolen. Similarly, those accounts can also be used to send malware, spam or other threats to the victim’s contacts. In any event, this is criminal activity.”
So, if you don’t want to see a reservation at the “crowbar hotel” in your near future, then take a pass on this opportunity.
Now, if you really want to do this and not get caught, and you have a spare $100,000, then give me a call. LOL!
