How cybercrime operations work and why they make money


Cybercrime has become a profession and the demographic of your typical cybercriminal is changing rapidly, from bedroom bound geek to the type of organised gangster more traditionally associated with drug trafficking, extortion and money laundering.

It has become possible for people with comparatively low technical skills to steal thousands of pounds a day without leaving their homes.
