TOKYO (MacHouse) – The other day, I ran across a blog website hosted at Google-owned Blogspot where one claims that he or she has exploitation toolkits to sell. Some of his toolkits include icepack, firepack, mpack and sploit. With the ICQ number listed on the website, I tried to contact this person. Last time, the only thing I knew about this person is that he calls himself Jerry. It’s a man. On the first day, I waited for a couple of hours. But he didn’t seem to be around.
Today, I just decided to leave him a message. So I wrote
“Hello. I found your ICQ address at sellcvv2.blogspot.com. Could you tell me how much Icepack costs? Does it come with an English user manual? Thanks.”
And I sent out the message. I was going to log off. Then just a few seconds after, I received a message. It said “Icepack 70$.” It’s Jerry. I was caught by a total surprise. I was a little scared to talk to this stranger. Starting from the beginning, our conversation took place as follows.
After he said that he couldn’t sell since I don’t have e-gold, I tried to get him to talk more by saying that I had to get an e-gold account. But he wasn’t typing. So I decided to end our conversation.
What’s interesting in this conversation is that exploitation toolkits are not just available for Windows OS but also available for Mac OS. Jerry mentioned that he could sell me Neosploit with an English user’s guide. I had no idea what Neosploit is. So I was going to ask him how it works, but… He also mentioned another name, troy. I have no idea what it is. Furthermore, I was also going to ask him if Firepack and Icepack are developed by Russians. Perhaps, I’ll ask when I get a chance to talk to him next time.
By the way, this conversation started at 10:50 AM (US PST) on January 6, 2008.
So who is Jerry? Because of the speed of typing and time of response, it is likely that his primary language is English. And the currency he wants is U.S. dollar. So I suppose he comes from North America. On another hand, while talking with him, I realized that he wrote the currency symbol after the number. And I just wonder in which country they do that?
