I invested 3 weeks studying FreeHacks, among the dark webs greatest platform for hackers. From passports to charge card, absolutely nothing is safe
T he darknet (or dark web) is among the most interesting vestiges of mankind we’ve ever seen. It’s an aggregated overload of all the darkest elements of web activity– kid abuse images, drug markets, weapon stores, gore smut, taken product, anarchist guides, terrorist chats, identity theft, hacking services …
I’m going to concentrate on the most powerful of these tiers– hacking services.
I invested 3 weeks equating and studying FreeHacks, among the biggest hacking online forums on the web. It’s a Russian neighborhood which intends to jointly collect its resources in order to take full advantage of effectiveness and understanding dispersement.
It works the like any normal online forum, you open TOR(a specialized internet browser for searching the dark web), paste in the URL, and arrive on a web page with different sub-forums split into various classifications. The classifications are well-divided and diverse:
Hacker world news
Hacking and security
Carding (taking charge card and aiming to cash them out on the web)
Botnet (a network of bots utilized to send out and take information spam, or carry out DDOS attacks)
Electronics and phreaking (phreaking is aiming to break somebody’s security network)
Brutus (software application utilized to break passwords)
DDOS (frustrating a server with demands to shut it down)
Malware and exploits
Personal software application
Clothes market (individuals who utilize taken charge card to purchase clothing and resell them)
As you can see, this online forum covers an excessive quantity of prohibited activity. The whole online forum remains in Russian– and has about 5,000 active members. This is simply the pointer of the iceberg, too; every sub-forum is divided even further into lots of other sub-forums. To record whatever here would take me a minimum of 6 months and incorporate a complete book.
