Criminals in UK buying cyber hacking kits ‘off the shelf’ to access computers, bank accounts

London, Mar. 14 (ANI): Criminals in the UK are buying “off the shelf” software to hack into computers and bank accounts of Brits.

According to he Home Office, expert cyber crooks sell the programs to ordinary villains, who then find it easier than ever to bypass online security measures, reports The Sun.

Security Minister James Brokenshire will warn of the new black market on Thursday.

A National Cyber Crime Unit is planned to spearhead the police fight against Net crooks.

Police, computer experts and academics will also work together to find ways to protect the public.

Brokenshire said cyber criminals are organised and global, with a new breed selling “off the shelf” software to aid gangs in exploiting the public. (ANI)
