Hacking could be becoming a popular trend, with a growing number of websites allowing internet users to actively seek them out. One hacking rental website is charging $90 to hack Gmail accounts, and a higher fee of $350 for Facebook accounts. The website, which is called Hackers List, uses professional hackers and offers a number of services, including wiping unwanted photos from accounts.
Discussing hacking into a Gmail account, the website said: “Hacking a Gmail address can come in handy if you lose your account password, manage other people’s business accounts or simply want to improve your computer skills.
However, it may not be necessary for someone who has lost an account password to pay the $90 fee, as Gmail users can easily regain access to their accounts themselves.
The website offers advice for those wanting to crack passwords, stating: “You can hack Gmail with browser settings, phishing and keylogging software and special scripts.”
Other services offered include tutorials and DIY kits for those interested in developing or improving hacking skills. The website encourages users to “hire the right hacker.”
“Hiring a hacker shouldn’t be a difficult process, we believe that finding a trustworthy professional hacker for hire should be a worry free and painless experience. At Hackers List we want to provide you with the best opportunity to find your ideal hacker and for professional hackers around the world to find you,” the website states.
The website also states that it is “insulated from any legal liability” because it does not “condone or endorse any illegal activities” and has a 10-page terms and conditions list “to which all users must agree.” This prevents people from using the website for “any illegal purposes.”
The subject of hacking becoming a new trend was recently discussed during the RSA Conference, where experts recommended that the US hire at least 10,000 hacking experts over the next several years, as there is a growing need for them to join leading intelligence and law enforcement agencies.
This shows that hacking could be becoming more mainstream and that hiring a professional hacker may actually be beneficial for some companies.
