Cybercriminals launch ‘black market for Android users’ as dark web goes mobile
Oct 26, 2017

Some criminals lurking on the underground internet are even building dedicated marketplaces for Android users, typically masked by the anonymity provided by Tor’s “Orbot” application.
The claims were published in a report released this week (25 October) by US enterprise security firm Intsights.
