Empire Market: Has the dark web page been attacked by DDoS?

Over the weekend, many reports appeared on Twitter and Reddit by users complaining about problem upload on the Empire Market website.

Empire Market has many illegal products, such as drugs, chemicals, counterfeit items, jewelry and credit card numbers, and offers payment methods such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and Monero.

«I placed an order 5 days ago and I do not know if the supplier was able to confirm it because I have not seen anything in Internet since then. It is ugly to expect something and it has been canceled automatically, »Said a Reddit user, o JuicyVeins.

Some rumors and comments circulating about the shutdown of the Empire Market, in public forums discuss the possibility of an exit scam.

Exit scams occur when companies continue, without hesitation, to accept orders without executing them and eventually disappear with the money.

In recent years, exit scams in cryptobodies were used to steal money stored in bonds accounts.

However, this possibility is minimal in this case, as some users claim that they were able to access the site, albeit with difficulty. This is not the first time the Empire Market has been attacked by DDoS. Earlier this year, the site had almost avoided serious problems from DDoS attacks.

A Twitter user, DarkDotFail, further claimed that the market had been hit by a huge DDoS attack, which made the access very slow, with Monero running down.

A leading Empire Market coordinator said: "If the dark web market has not returned in a few days, I will post about the whole situation then, it is the first days and maybe the administrators will restore it.»

If this turns out to be just a DDoS attack, it is surprisingly large, with the lead moderator giving an ambiguous answer.
