YOUR DATA MAY BE FOR SALE ON THE DARK WEB!

The Dark Web is a very real thing, it’s the online hub for cyber criminals and it’s impossible to prevent the traffic of illegal activity that goes on daily. There are millions of visitors every day and new websites and black marketplaces being created 24/7!

Because it’s literally untraceable, criminals are more motivated to carry out cybercrime now than ever, and with the rising price of Bitcoins and more investors in Cryptocurrency then before, it’s no wonder that transactions over the Dark Web have increased ten-fold.

The DarkMarket, once the largest illegal web marketplace worth $140 million gave the Cybercrime unit a struggle to take down as there were over 20 servers to locate, leading to more than 60 arrests worldwide.

Bitcoin is the most popular form of currency on the Dark Web, Bitcoin can’t be tracked like a bank transfer, so trading is happening every second and there’s no way to know who is buying or selling!

Did you know: 80% of hacking-related breaches leveraged either stolen passwords and/or weak or guessable passwords!

There is huge marketplace in the dealing of selling data. Nowadays, cybercriminals are leveraging this fact by making a hefty profit stealing login details of businesses and users, and selling them to other criminals who no doubt have malicious intent (whether it be to identity theft, transfer money, steal data, blackmail etc.)
