DEF CON 22 - Weaponizing Your Pets: The War Kitteh and the Denial of Service Dog
busterhaxat December 10,2015 Similar to another video on here. While I don't condone these acts, it's interesting that the sellers care about their reputation which is incentive for them to provide good services to their customers.
bmanahan188at December 12,2015 Great point that the police could easily pose as sellers on these types of sites. I do think that this the darknet is a natural progression with us, and as long as we have advancing technology we will continue to see criminal transactions take this digital form. I think the success which Silk Road has had will drive others to create some innovation regarding the darkweb, as money is a strong driving force behind creation.
fsyed3at December 17,2015 Echoing nbodyk's comment....there's always money to be made, and every situation is an opportunity, it seems - regardless of what the original purpose was. Having just watched the Silk Road video, I think people overestimate their anonymity and expectation of privacy...the world wide web is public. There is no expectation of privacy.
haygaffat December 19,2015 I like the comment/question from the commentator at the end, "have you used the internet to buy your illegal drugs on the web, if so post your comments on the video below." Is it a perfect system, not so sure. Should illegal drugs be made legal. Not up to me. I do believe as long as something it illegal, people will find a way to do it. Reputation does seem to be everything in that world and since there is truly no trust, you are left with nothing else.
haneenat January 27,2016 I don't know do they really trust each other, if the police find it hard to follow those operation. What if some one take your money and run away, like what happened with one of them, and why risk it with huge amount of money?
I also think that there must be a way for the police to track those dealers. Maybe by disguising their selves with fake accounts and make deals with the sellers.
