It's about time, amirite? It's United States' "first-ever national-level undercover bust of dark web outfits".

The US just broke new ground in its bid to shut down illegal markets on the dark web. A slew of agencies (the Department of Justice, Homeland Security Investigations, the Secret Service, the DEA and the Postal Inspection Service) have announced the first-ever national-level undercover bust of dark web outfits selling drugs, weapons and other contraband. HSI agents pretended to be money launderers on multiple sites in an operation that resulted in arrests for "more than" 35 vendors and seizures worth $23.6 million. https://www.engadget.com/2018/0...to-35-arrests/

It's like the black market and more, but yeah, probably more known for the black market part.

What is the Dark Web (also called dark net)?
Then we have the Dark Web. This is a sub-set of the Deep Web that contains all sorts of websites, both legal and illegal. The types of sites include black markets that sell things like drugs, counterfeit goods, and weapons, you also have hacking sites, X-rated sites, bitcoin tumbling, and even sites for hitmen. The variety of sites on the Dark Web is quite astonishing. For now there is no dark web search engine that works as well as Google does for the clearnet.

@Zolfie It's like the black market and more, but yeah, probably more known for the black market...

To access some parts of the Dark Web, you have to have your own script and programs written to gain access. It's very compartmentalized, and that's why it's tough to find the bad guys there.

Bravo to all those people who got the job done.
