Data security vendor, Imperva, likens the ‘industrialisation of hacking’ to the way the industrial revolution of the 19th century revolutionised factories.

In its report — the Industrialisation of Hacking — Imperva cites the example of a new hacker scheme that is spawning educational servers worldwide with Viagra ads that go on to infect web users with malware when they visit the infected page on the legitimate education site.

In its study, the company argues that cybercriminals are using industrialised methods to automate an as-yet unreported search engine manipulation scheme that has infected hundreds, possibly thousands of web pages.
