Russian Business Network Study

Here’s something that might interest some of you. It starts out like this:

“There are some places in the world where life is dangerous. Internet has some dark zones too and RBN is one of them. RBN stands for Russian Business Network and it’s a nebulous organisation which aims to fulfil cyber crime.”

Seems like the guy that wrote this did not have a spell checker. :slight_smile:

p.s. The link is to a pdf file which came up clean after I ran it by Virus Total. I got this information from reading an article in Windows IT Pro. You need to login to read it though.


Can’t read the article since it’s PDF-file. Could you possible copy all of it instead?
Also, here’s a good old Wikipedia-link about RBN:

Quote from the Wikipedia:

The Russian Business Network (commonly abbreviated as RBN) is a Russian Internet Service Provider based in St. Petersburg which is notorious for its hosting of illegal and dubious businesses, including; [b]child ■■■■■■■■■■■[/b], phishing and malware distribution sites.

It’s strange that a ISP helps people to do crimes on the Internet… But it’s Russia, that’s why it’s possible, wouldn’t be in (most of the) other countries. It’s probably owned by the Russian mafia or something…


I don’t think you want me to do that. It’s 70 pages. Someone might get upset with me. ;D


Oh ok, then I understand.

Don’t worry. He won’t make it past the first line anyway while he’s glug glug’ing. BTW, I moved this to the General Security Comments board since I assume this is not specifically about CFP, right?
