It’s a Deal, It’s a Steal:
How the Holidays Affect Dark Web Cybercriminal Activity

It should be no surprise that cybercriminal activity spikes around the holidays. Low holiday prices and high online traffic provide criminals the perfect opportunity to blend in with legitimate shoppers to take over accounts, use stored payment information or stolen gift cards to make fraudulent purchases, and exploit Buy Online, Pick Up in Store (BOPIS) policies.

But what we saw during the month of November on dark web criminal marketplaces surprised us – huge spikes in the sales of crimeware tools, dating accounts, and stolen credentials for particular restaurants, airlines and other consumer services accounts.
