DeepDotWeb goes down
« on: July 28, 2019, 06:56:23 AM »
Not exactly breaking news but significant nonetheless.

Updated Information About the Investigation into DeepDotWeb

Conspirators face charges under the United States Money Laundering Control Act. Here is the indictment: (PDF).

The investigation involved the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation; Europol; Dutch National Police; the Federal Criminal Police Office; the National Crime Agency; the Israeli National Police; Tel Aviv Police; the Joint Criminal Opioid and Darknet Enforcement (J-CODE); the Brazilian Federal Police; the Internal Revenue Service Cyber Crimes Unit; and the United States Postal Inspection Service. Based on the seizure banners alone, the DeepDotWeb takedown involved more law enforcement agencies than the investigation and seizure of Wallstreet Market.

Lessons learned:
- don't attempt to generate money from the proceeds of crime
- don't think you can affiliate with large targets of various international crime agencies
- don't do either of those two in plain sight (!!)
- don't shit where you live
- OPSEC is hard, especially when you're up against nation states

However, I had serious misgivings about sharing because my quest was one for knowledge and experience while, I knew, for most others it would be for purely economic reasons.
