In November 2014, a hackers-for-hire site called Hacker’s List starting offering their services to the public. “Need to break the law, but lack the technology chops to do it yourself?” asked tech writer Lisa Vaas. “Now, as they say, there’s an app for that.” The site matches hackers with clients anonymously. Think Task Rabbit for your more unseemly online activities. It’s Craigslist for private espionage. As you might imagine, it became very popular very fast.
