The fierce war against the criminals of the Dark Web

Dark WebThe Dark Web is a part of the internet where various take place illegal activitiessuch as the supply of malware, the sale of stolen personal data, credit cards, weapons, drugs, etc.

Η access the dark web is not simply done, with a search on Google. Not everyone can get access. One of its key features is the anonymity. This is why it is used for illegal activities.

Detecting dark web criminals is not an easy task, as location, The businesses and attacks they take place in different countries.

A security investigator, Ziv Mador, Trustwave's vice president, said that law enforcement agencies face great difficulty in bringing them Criminals before justice.

They need to gain access to the dark web in order to collect data and identify the perpetrators. In addition, they often have to work with the authorities of other countries. This is difficult because countries have different judicial and legal procedures.

Despite the difficulties, the business of the authorities can succeed. For example, last year, the Spanish authorities they managed to arrest a Russian cybercriminal, him Peter Severa, with the help of other countries.

“Security companies collect and analyze them information, but do not have the power to arrest the culprits. We work with law enforcement agencies to provide them with information, ”the researcher said.

Collaboration between law enforcement agencies is crucial. Many times criminals are in the same country, but computers and computers servers they are found elsewhere.

Mador heads a large team of researchers. His team has more than 150 ethical hackers and researchers helping businesses cope cyber attacks, to protect them data and reduce the risk.

In addition, they are conducting investigations to identify threats globally. One of them showed that stolen Singapore credit cards, found on the dark web, are more expensive than those coming from other countries.

According to Mador, criminals can be revealed through the public Forums on the dark web.

The first step is to gain access to the dark Web. This can be done through special software such as TOR, which hides the identity of the users.

Then the researchers should join a forum. Usually they are invited by invitation. Registered members should allow access to young people.

"As soon as new people come in, they need to create a profile, get to know others and gain their trust," the researcher said.

If they manage to gain their trust hackers, investigators will be able to navigate the dark Web to detect criminals and collect evidence.

Members of the forums should follow certain rules that are very similar to those that apply to many sites:

- Forum members may not treat other members threateningly

- Only posts that benefit members are allowed

- Attempts to infect the forum with malware are forbidden

- Members should respect the privacy of other members.

Failure to follow the rules may result in the member being removed from the forum.
