If the Internet has a lot of one thing, then it'd have to be lists. There's Craigslist for garage sales, Angie's List for local businesses and a new site just kept the trend alive: Hacker's List.
Hacker's List is a site that claims to connect hackers with anonymous employers. After creating an account, an employer can post a request on the site. Hackers bid on who gets the gig.
A site that openly offers hacking services is a sign of the times. Smart hackers know how to operate anonymously and when you're making at least $300 a pop, then this site could be a gold mine.
The front page of the Hacker's List says the following:
Hiring a hacker shouldn't be a difficult process, we believe that finding a trustworthy professional hacker for hire should be a worry free and painless experience. At Hacker's List we want to provide you with the best opportunity to find your ideal hacker and for professional hackers around the world to find you.
Even if you were to decide to hire a hacker, then you might start getting uncomfortable after finding out how the funds are exchanged. Here's the chart that Hacker's List uses to explain how an employer goes about paying the anonymous hacker that he or she hires.
Confusing, right? As scary as Hacker's List might be, that confusing mess of a billing system makes me think that it's probably a massive scam.
