Cybersecurity firm Recorded Future recently reported that the average cybercriminal makes about $1,000 to $3,000 a month. This is small change for the risk these criminals take. About 20% of cyber crooks make $20,000 or more per month, and some make $50,000 to $200,000 monthly. According to Andrei barysevich, director of Recorded Future, ‘this is what they can spend on loose women, fast cars, and nice clothes.’
The security company posted a suvey on underground marketplaces and deep web hacker forums to obtain its results. It is not known whether cybercriminals are honest on such surveys.
