Spam-friendly Image Randomization Tool Released on the Underground Marketplace

Cybercriminals, continue applying basic QA (Quality Assurance) processes, to their fraudulent campaigns, on their way to achieve a posive ROI (Return on Investment) out of their fraudulent activities.

In this post, we'll discuss a newly launched commercial tool, that's capable of generating unique images, for the purpose of tricking spam filters, in an attempt to trick end users into falling victim into the fraudulent campaign.

Priced at $25, the API-enabled tool is capable of converting a regular image, executed in a spam campaign, into a new one, successfully bypassing spam filters, exposing end users to fraudulent attempts, generating fraudulent revenue, for the cybercriminals behind the campaign.

We expect to continue observing an increase in QA (Quality Assurance) driven underground market propositions, leading to a successful set of fraudulent propositions, dominating the underground marketplace.
