Man arrested for selling Netflix and Spotify accounts

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) announced today that they arrested a man accused of selling stolen login credentials online. The unnamed man, a 21-year-old living in Sydney, Australia, operated a website called WickedGen.com that advertised having almost one million usernames and passwords for Netflix, Spotify, Hulu and other services. Police believe he generated AU$300,000 (about $211,000) selling the stolen logins.

Police in Australia were tipped off to WickedGen.com, which claimed to have about 120,000 paid users, by the FBI in 2018. While the arrest took place in Australia, the victims of the site were international and included people located in the US. When the administrator of the site was arrested by AFP yesterday, police seized "electronic materials and various amounts of cryptocurrencies" from his home.

According to police, the operator of WickedGen.com obtained the stolen accounts through credential stuffing -- a process in which an attacker takes usernames and passwords from a breach and attempts to "stuff" those credentials into other services. The process works because people often reuse passwords, so a breach of one service may result in obtaining logins for multiple other sites. If you were looking for a reminder to use unique passwords or to finally adopt a password manager, let this be it.

Respectfully, this is the type of a*sumption that gets people jammed up.

You ever heard of "building a case" against someone? Or maybe someone isn't on the radar until someone brings them up?

Building a case takes one offense. There's been multiple over the course of YEARS. I HiGHLY doubt he's pulling in tons of money like this other dude was anyways. I'm not saying there's no risk but this thread isn't going to get him caught up. Just like the threads he made doing business haven't gotten him caught up. Why don't you tell him to stop?

Running your OWN website and selling accounts is stupid and a recipe for this result. Way too many failure points to determine who is behind the whole thing.

This is not a simple topic or one that I care to write an essay about, even though I could from my background.

Simple point is...for those that are still active in selling. Stick to 3rd parties...whether that is selly, shoppy, whatever they are and/or forums that allow sales of this stuff. Get your vouches for your quality of service/what you provide. And make sure you either are using an alias (newer or otherwise) that doesn't have breadcrumbs.

Disassociate & Confuse.

It amazes me how cats really think they can hide certain things in the cyber world. They try to stay anonymous and still get caught. I don't care if you're a network admin with 30 years of experience. You can still get caught.

IT'S SET UP THAT WAY. FEDS KNOW.
