our measurements suggest that the ecosystem appears quite resilient to law enforcement take-downs
A number of documented successes in using traditional police work against sellers of hazardous substances or large-scale dealers show that law enforcement is not powerless to address the issue in the physical world
From UK dancefloors to the offices of apathetic government officials, via social networking sites and underground labs, Mike Power explores this agile, international, virtual subculture that will always be one step ahead of the law.
Dans les Profondeurs du Darknet… [Doc 2016]
Que savons-nous de “l’internet parallèle”, les plus sombres réseaux, pourtant sous nos yeux…
The closure of Silk Road coincides with a steep decline in the prevalence of the libertarian discourse suggesting that while the closure did not succeed in curtailing the cryptomarket economy, it dampened political sentiments. The findings indicate a tendency towards a more rational motivation – or at least less political participation – on cryptomarkets
I strongly encourage every vendor to read through these notes and analyse their own operation so they do not make the same mistakes that their colleagues/competition did. In the end it is not only your own future that is at risk but also the one of your customers. Please read the whole post because it not only includes stupid vendor mistakes that you probably would never make, but also some tricky pitfalls which you would miss out if you just skim the post.
ce Guérétois achetait de l’herbe de cannabis sur Internet et en vendait sur son site, vendeurdedrogue.com. Ce n’est pas la gendarmerie spécialisée dans la traque aux malfaiteurs sur le Web mais une dénonciation anonyme qui a finalement et rapidement mis fin à ses agissements.
« Plus maintenant », affirme la direction générale des douanes. Renforcé par la loi Loppsi, le service de cyberdouane peut aujourd’hui infiltrer les réseaux cachés où il se fait passer pour un acheteur. Ce qui lui était impossible avant. « Cela a permis en décembre dernier l’arrestation d’un vendeur de speed et de résine de cannabis présent sur Silk Road, poursuit la DG des douanes. Nous l’avons traqué pendant quatre mois afin d’effectuer le travail d’information et de renseignement nécessaire à son interpellation. C’est une première en France. »
« Privacy and encryption work, but it’s too easy to make a mistake that exposes you. Tails puts the essential tools in one place, with a design that makes it hard to screw them up. I could not have talked to Edward Snowden without this kind of protection. I wish I’d had it years ago. »
From Gamma Goblin’s official site:
We’ve tested the current #4 crystal and it came out at 60% pure. This means we will be refunding all purchases of Parvatis, Flowers and Bombs made since December 19th. Kali Yuga tabs are not affected, as they were laid from a different crystal (#2). Tabs ordered prior to December 21st have been already sent – keep them as freebies and ask for refund anyway. Tabs are ok, they are just 40% weaker than advertised. Tabs ordered between December 22nd and December 27th were not sent.
We’re deeply sorry for this situation, #4 was tested earlier and was good, we’ve got the leftovers of the stock and it looks like it wasn’t stored properly or there was some other issue. Anyway, we won’t be restocking this crystal. This is not the xmas gift you’d expect… Luckily we identified the issue before “scamming” many of you. For now we will stick to the trusted, but more expensive sources running #2 and #6 crystals.
This is the procedure for refund: message us from the account you’ve made your order with BTC address we will send you back USD value of your order in BTC”
Well, this kind of responsibility and issues solving hardly seen even IRL
Dutch drug users increasingly purchase drugs online: new psychoactive substances in particular. Purity and adulteration do not vary considerably between drugs purchased online and offline for most substances, while online prices are mostly higher than offline prices.
Le Darkweb, voyage entre mythes et réalité
M. Damien Teyssier – RSSI CROUS Limoges
Est-il protéiforme, quelles sont ses fondations réelles, quelles sont les forces qui l’animent? A quoi ressemble son empreinte réelle sur le monde ?
“Activités publiques”: cybercrime, cyberactivisme, cyberconflits… ou plus discrètes: humint, cybint, cybergéopolitique… nous parlerons aussi d’un point important: comment le darknet nous impacte tous.
