Researchers at IntSight have discovered that cybercriminals are increasingly using IM platforms like Telegram, Discord, Jabber, WhatsApp, IRC, and others to advertise and sell their goods and services. The researchers believe that the reason why cybercriminals are migrating to these platforms is because of law enforcement operations that targeted the Hansa, and AlphaBay Markets several years ago, and because of the ongoing law enforcement takedowns of major cybercrime forums and marketplaces.
