Thanks to a new website, the business of hacking is expanding its reach beyond the FBI, CIA, NSA, criminals, hacktivists and the likes and moving into the hands of everyday citizens. Hacker’s List is a website that matches hackers with people looking for services like gaining access to Facebook and email accounts, gaining access to a company’s database, app hacks, adjusting grades and more.
Many compare the Hacker’s List to websites like Craiglist, but a more accurate comparison would be to websites like Elance, Fiverr or ODesk. Users can post the hacking job and hackers bid on the project. Money is held in escrow and released after the job has been marked as completed.
