<security, legal> (CaaS) A kind of software as a service that involves performing illegal online activities (cybercrime) on behalf of others for money. Cybercrime as a service represents an evolution of online crime from the sale of illegal products such as malware and exploit kits to offering everything necessary to arrange a cyber fraud or to conduct a cyber attack. As well as providing malicious code, the service provider also rents out the infrastructure to control the distribution and operation of the malware, e.g., bullet-proof hosting or huge botnets.
