‘Blackshades’ Trojan Users Had It Coming
In short, Blackshades was a tool created and marketed principally for
buyers who wouldn’t know how to hack their way out of a paper bag. From
the Justice Department’s press release today:
“After purchasing a copy of the RAT, a user had to install the RAT on a
victim’s computer – i.e., “infect” a victim’s computer. The infection of
a victim’s computer could be accomplished in several ways, including by
tricking victims into clicking on malicious links or by hiring others to
install the RAT on victims’ computers.
The RAT contained tools known as ‘spreaders’ that helped users of the
RAT maximize the number of infections. The spreader tools generally
worked by using computers that had already been infected to help spread
the RAT further to other computers. For instance, in order to lure
additional victims to click on malicious links that would install the
RAT on their computers, the RAT allowed cybercriminals to send those
malicious links to others via the initial victim’s social media service,
making it appear as if the message had come from the initial victim.”
News that the FBI and other national law enforcement organizations had
begun rounding up Blackshades customers started surfacing online last
week, when multiple denizens of the noob-friendly hacker forum
Hackforums[dot]net began posting firsthand experiences of receiving a
visit from local authorities related to their prior alleged Blackshades
use. See the image gallery at the end of this post for a glimpse into
the angst that accompanied that development.

I know how those stupid kids feel, I got raided by the United States
Secret Service about four years ago. They came right in with a search
warrant and took my computer equipment. This is no joke, you do
something wrong on the internet and the federal government will be
coming in your door with a ( rubber stamped) search warrant.
So keeping this post brief as possible without a lot of information , I
ended getting my computer and hard drives back after about 8 months. I
wouldn’t wish the experience on anyone. Trust me it’s not a fun
experience to go through.
