This tool may make it easier for thieves to empty bank accounts

Jeremy Kirk | Jan. 21, 2015
FraudFox is designed to spoof a browser fingerprint, an advanced method for tracking users.

A forthcoming feature for FraudFox will be a "profile generator script." That script is designed for use with a phishing page. If a victim can be lured to the page, the script will automatically collect the person's browser fingerprint. Those details are wrapped into a ".fox" file, which can then be used to quickly configure FraudFox.

One trial user of FraudFox who claims to have tested it praised it. The reviewer wrote that FraudFox helped increase the percentage of cards he was able to authorize through payment processors using Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode, two security mechanisms used for online card-not-present transactions.

"I am very happy with this product and I am willing to purchase this real soon," wrote the person, nicknamed "Coin."
