The depth of the Dark Web & Information Cost by Criminals

Introduction:

I have written in my previous blogs about the Anonymous Criminal Activities on the Dark Web. Now in this blog, I am going to discuss the most illustrated areas of Dark Web and those Black Hat Hacking & Illegal Hidden Cyber Crimes that are being operated from the Dark Net which is increasing day by day in most of the popular countries anonymously. Now, let’s introduce with what kind of illegal actions are done under this layer of Deep Web.

What lies in the Depth of the Internet?

Billions of people are using the Internet for leisure, business & for communication purposes. But they are only scratching the Surface Web i.e. the only 4% publicly accessible area of its total information or of the total searching results on the Internet. Google, Yahoo, Bing etc – like these Search Engines are used to surf the Surface Web safely with the help of these traditional browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Safari, Opera browser, UC browser & many more. but to surf the anonymous Dark Web, we need extra software applications (TOR browser). Now I am going to explain the depth of the Dark Net.

Delving into the Dark Web:

Q1. What is Dark Web?

The Dark Web is made up of encrypted websites that stay anonymous & neither accessible from our traditional search engines nor from our regular used browsers. In that case, we need to use anonymous browsers like TOR to surf the depth of the Darknet.

Q2. Where on the Web?

The Dark Web is a very small portion of Deep Web. Although the exact size of the Dark Web is unknown it is thought to make up less than 0.01%of the Deep Web. However, it is important to remember that the Deep Web is much larger than the Surface Web that we all use every day. Even a tiny proportion can equate to significant criminal activity.

Q3. How does it function?

Data on the Dark Web is encrypted and passed through randomly selected computers across the globe to hide the origin of the information.

 What can be found on the Dark Web?

  1. File Sharing
  2. Leaked Data
  3. Financial Fraud
  4. News & Media
  5. Promotions
  6. Discussion Forum
  7. Drugs
  8. Internet & Computing
  9. Hacking(Black Hat)
  10. Pornography
  11. Weapons
  12. Illegally animal selling
  13. Social Media Site’s Password Hacking & selling
  14. Credit & Debit Card’s number selling
  15. Database Hacking
  16. Selling of False Degree Certificates
  17. Viruses(Malware)
  18. Child Pornography
  19. Illegal Hardware & software Products selling
  20. Illegally Stolen Government Documents & Registrations selling

These are the most possible 20 common activities done under the Dark Web anonymously. These are actually a small sample of illegal Dark Net crimes. More than that are done here in the most dangerous critical way.

How much does information cost on the Dark Web?

There is a huge variety of stolen data for sale on the Dark Web, including both financial information and login details. It is also the place, fraudsters go to buy the tools which are used to commit identity theft. Below, we look at the average price of various types of personal information for sale:

Credit Cards:

Visa Classic & Master Card with user data: “£28(United Kingdom) & £11 (USA)”

Visa Premium with user data: “£35 – £42 (United Kingdom) & £21 (USA)”

User Data includes the Card number, Expiry date, card holder’s name, all which is recorded in the magnetic strip on the back of the card.

Visa premium refers to a card with higher credit limit than any Visa Classic or Master card.

Hacking Emails & Social Media Accounts                Prices

Popular U.S. Email Accounts (Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo) £90   (per account)

Popular U.S. Social Media Accounts                                 £90     (per account)

     Note:

  1. Remote Access Trojans-  A Trojan Program is one that conceals itself inside the legitimate software and, once installed, gives a hacker complete control of the victim’s system.
  2. Crypters: Crypters work like a mask or shield for other malicious programs (e.g. RAT’s) and prevent anti-virus software from defending a problem.
  3. Angler Exploit Kits: Exploits kits are programs, concealed in websites, that look for weaknesses in the security of a computer system in order to install malicious software.

Pros & Cons of the Dark Web:

Is Dark Web Good or Bad?!

It depends on how it is used & for which purposes are being used. Most of the Crimes & Black Hat hacking activities are done here illegally and anonymously & that is why it is said that the Dark Web is seemed to be a Web-World of Black Market’s Darkest illegal Area. Most of the Popular Countries & their secure Governor data’s are hacked by using this web anonymously & this is increasing in fast process day by day that creates so many problems also. As the user is able to keep himself hidden, identity theft is done here mostly. Dark Web is also used in purpose to catch a cybercriminal by Ethical Hackers or White Hat Hackers. In case of journalism, sometimes journalists use this Web to get some hidden news for their professional purposes only, that news may be forbidden to publish internationally but an interested journalist would like to search it on the Dark Web to find his News ‘data’. It is also a space for researching in the Computer Science or in Computerized Professional Course for Educational fields on Hacking & Cyber Crimes or on Cyber Security, Cryptography, Awareness from Black Hat Hacking, Virus Program learning etc. Let’s the average & common people have to know about this Criminal Activities to keep their system or device safe & secure. But as I said, it is a wide area for criminals. so you have to surf this Web in your own responsibility.

Some basic information of Dark Web to learn: What is Good & What is Bad here:-

GOODS:

  1. Whistleblowsers: Information can be passed to journalists anonymously
  2. Banned Literature: Gives access to books, Poetries, News & Educational Materials that are banned by oppressive regimes.

 BADS:

  1. Crimes & Frauds:  Internet anonymity enables risk-free tracing for criminals.
  2. Criminal Gangs: Internet anonymity makes it possible for criminal gangs to communicate without the threat of surveillance.

Conclusions: 

Keep Safe your system, Careful from Black Hat Hackers. “.onion” suffix-added URLs are the Dark Web sites where every hidden information are kept anonymously with the help of encrypted codes.

These are all the information about the Depth of Dark Web, & the information costs of those illegally stolen materials by Hackers which are the essential parts of the Black Market under Dark Net. In that case, TOR browsers are used mostly to do its best. If you want to surf the Dark Web, do it with your own responsibility!!
