    Dark Web marketplaces are troves of illicit products and data: stolen credentials, credit card numbers, and, as researchers recently discovered, remote desktop protocol (RDP) access to the security and building automation systems of a major international airport – for the cheap price of $10. Researchers from the McAfee Advanced Threat Research team used an open search on Ultimate Anonymity Service (UAS), a Russian RDP shop, to search for open RDP ports at that specific organization. They narrowed their search from 65,536 possible IPs to three; by obtaining a complete IP address, they could look up the WHOIS data and find all addresses belonging to a major airport, the name of which is being withheld.
