Mercenary Cybercriminals for Hire by Terrorists – Europol

Cybercriminals offering contract services for hire could provide militant groups the means to attack Europe, the EU police agency Europol warned on Wednesday (September 28). The so-called Darknet is being exploited by militants taking advantage of computer experts offering crime “at your service.”

Europol director, Rob Wainwright, issued a stark warning this week that cybercrime is on the rise, and that law enforcement is struggling to keep pace.

In particular, Mr. Wainwright highlighted the fear that terrorists could commission the freelance services of cybercriminals to further their activities.

“While the extent to which extremist groups currently use cyber techniques to conduct attacks appears to be limited, the availability of cybercrime tools and services, and illicit commodities such as firearms on the darknet, provide ample opportunities for this situation to change.”
