The Dark Web is a treasure trove of illicit and criminal goods and services for sale. And, in fact, cybercrime is one area that it covers. You can hire a hacker to carry out any of these tasks for you, from website hacking to DDoS assaults to custom malware modifications to altering teaching grades. But how much do such things cost? A consumer website called Comparitech released a blog post recently detailing the many types of hacking services available on the Dark Web and determining their prices.
- A personal attack, which usually includes defamation, legal warfare or financial upset, was the most costly item on the menu. The next most expensive service was changing school grades. All of the hackers demand payment upfront, although some guarantee a refund if the hack fails.
- Students willing to pay a fee of around $500 can obtain higher grades by hacking into a school system and changing their grades. This is one of the most popular hacking services, as well as one of the most costly. Some hackers claim they can steal future exam answers as a side business.
- On average, personal assaults are worth $550. Financial ruin, legal problems, or public defamation are all examples of personal attacks. Framing the victim as a child pornographer is one approach suggested by a hacker. A few hackers provide “scammer revenge” and “fraud tracking,” in which they will go after a fraudster.
- Hackers frequently claim that they can finish tasks in 24 hours, although more complicated jobs might take days or weeks. The websites for the hacking services we examine usually advise potential consumers to contact us by encrypted email or a secure chat software.
Many services provide a range of prices rather than a certain amount. In those situations, the lowest priced product was used in the study. Prices are frequently quoted in cryptocurrency, but were converted to US dollars using the current exchange rate at the time the price was recorded.
We do not tolerate or encourage hackers who are malicious or who employ unethical hacking methods. This website is for informational and entertainment purposes only.
