Cyber-criminals' modus operandi

“What worries me is the professionalism of everything” (Scottish writer, Irvine Welsh). Especially the professionalization of cybercrime has become a problem that is increasing.

In the breathtaking video that accompanies this post, we are privileged to witness some of the techniques used by thieves in this century: from stealing credit cards or credentials to using call centers or hiring mules to make it difficult to track the money. In this way, the protagonist kneaded € 100,000 to buy a sports car.



To protect their users from some of these dangers, Twitter has strengthened all it’s traffic with the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDHE) cipher suites that generate a randomized key per session that is shared between the browser o app and Twitter’s servers. But these ones don’t exchange the key in full.
