The Genesis Market: Buying Bad Bots Wholesale

Our increased reliance on digital services to shop, work and communicate has left us exposed to cybercriminals looking to steal our data to impersonate us online. Across the globe, underground marketplaces like the world-renowned Genesis Market are growing in scale and sophistication, where millions of dollars are exchanged for illicitly obtained credentials.

In a unique investigation, our highly specialized Threat Research team has infiltrated the infamous Genesis Market, exposing a hidden and thriving ecosystem of over 350,000 stolen identities readily available to buy for as little as 70c.
