From Sunbeltblog: Massive identity theft ring
http://sunbeltblog.blogspot.com/2005/08 ... -ring.html
In some recent research into a spyware exploit, our research team has discovered a massive identity theft ring.
We also found the keylogger transcript files that are being uploaded to the servers.
This is real spyware stuff - chat sessions, user names, passwords, bank information, etc. We have confirmed that this data is valid. Highly personal information, including even one fellow who has a penchant for pedophilia, all logged in detail and returned a webserver.
Note that there is a LOT of bank information in here, including one company bank account with over US$350,000 and another small company in California with over $11,000 readily accessible. This list goes on and on and on. Of course, there's also eBay accounts and much more.

An update on the massive identity theft ring we discovered earlier. The FBI has responded to us and they are working on the case.
I will be providing more later as well as some (redacted) samples of what the files look like.
This was discovered by Patrick Jordan, a senior staff researcher here. Patrick is a veteran of spyware, and even he admits to never having seen something like this before. It's pretty staggering.
