>Of the companies targeted by Cobalt in phishing mailings, around 75 percent are in the financial sector. Most of these financial companies are banks (90%), but others include financial exchanges, investment funds, and lenders. This widening range of targets suggests that attacks on diverse companies with major financial flows are underway. This concurs with the forecast made by the FinCERT of the Russian Central Bank, which predicted increased interest by cybercriminals in financial exchanges in 2017.

>By attacking a financial exchange, the Cobalt group can "pump" or "dump" stocks, incentivizing purchase or sale of shares in certain companies in a way that causes rapid fluctuations in share price. Stock manipulation can affect not just the welfare of a single company, but the economy of entire countries. These methods were employed by the Corkow group in their 2016 attack on Russia's Energobank, which caused a 15-percent change in the exchange rate of the ruble and caused bank losses of RUB 244 million (over USD 4 million).

is this the REAL way to make money? Not fucking buying meme coins?

Sure, until Interpol nails your ass.

None of these people have been caught.

Of course. Scamming, hacking, theft are the best ways to make money. Sadly you'll get arrested pretty quickly. I did think of doing spear phishing for bittrex accounts and stuff but never tried because I don't want to go to prison.

If you're willing to risk prison, go ahead and take the illegal route. You'll get a lot of easy money.

Better to get assfucked in prison for a couple years by Tyrone(worst case scenario, most of the time these people aren't even caught or only get probation) than A LIFETIME OF WAGEKEKING

No. Hacking, money laundering, fraud etc all carry 20+ years.

Literally no one gets those punishments. There was literally a story of a Russian guy in NYC who cash almost $1 milllion worth of false tax refunds and hacked brokerage accounts and he got 3 years.
