Leaked data for sale through forums and marketplaces in cybercrime appears so frequent that it is essentially unknown, except for the choice of an individual victim. However, these leaks might show that a site or service has been compromised – possibly without the wiser being the operators.
One such prospective victim is the apparent Russian company DDoS-Guard, which protects against distributed denial-of-service attacks. The company’s supposed client data was presented on a cybercrime forum for sale.
The DDoS Guard offers DDoS protection, network content delivery services, and Web Hosting services. It is a Russian Internet infrastructure company.
On the 26th of May, a user put on Exploit.in “the full dump on the popular online DDoS-Guard service” for auction, with an opening sale price set at 500,000 dollars, or a blitz price set at 1.5 million dollars, with “buy it now.” However, later on, the auction was started at $350,000.
Singapore-based cybersecurity firm Group-IB reports that beyond DDoS defenses, “DDoS-Guard also provides computing capacities and obstructs the identification of website owners of hundreds of shady resources that are engaged in illicit goods sale, gambling and copyright infringements.” “
