“The thing about MPACK,” says James, “this is the start of the whole thing.” By this he seems to mean that Golden Age of Internet Crime, that dawning era. “They’re starting to think like architects instead of engineers.” MPACK brings together the best iFrames, the best exploits and some state-of-the-art malware into a single package all of which is being improved constantly, and sold with a focus on customer service.
