So I've been researching stalkerware for a while now, and I always had a feeling that a lot of the companies were linked in sort of clusters. Figured I'd go ahead and show one of those clusters now, and this guy "John Nguyen", though I'm pretty sure that is his actual name.
John runs "hellospy", "mobiispy", "maxxspy", "247spy", "1topspy", "spytic" & other companies that sell targeted #malware for surveillance of partners known as "stalkerware". He is not very good at covering his tracks. How bad? He has a youtube channel. youtube.com/channel/UCdxoX…
As well as his youtube channel he had quite the presence on Google+ promoting his various products .
He was also kind of late to the game when it came to anonymizing his domain registration info, using what I'd guess is his personal email address "johnnguyen778899@gmail.com" to register his earliest sites.
He also has these weird, rare, flights of fancy where he engages in blatant self-promotion, which is kinda weird when you are selling products that invite users to break various laws.
He has various company names to back the various versions of the very similar stalkerware that he sells, "Minoyou Solutions", "Inoline Solutions", they are linked to his name though, so it almost seems pointless.
"Minoyou Solutions" is linked to a bunch of whois records, primarily for Vietnamese sites related to mobile tech, John Nguyen is a busy dude.
Minoyou Solutions also links to "phuchha@gmail.com" which crops up in whois for alospy.com, opispy.net, mobellspy.com, mobeespy.com, mspymax.com and the aforementioned mobiispy.com. Dude loves the word "spy".
I'll finish off this round of peeking into the grimy world of stalkerware with this observation, unfortunately the only thing that John Nguyen is worse at than hiding his identity online is protecting his user's victim's data. They are victimized twice, through his incompetence.
Shout out to @HelloSpyPro, @mobiispy, @maxxspy, @iSpytic, I spy your CEO, you shitbirds.
