Anonymous and other factions of the hidden hacking community do good work in some cases. This is one of those cases. A lone Hacker decided to take down sites related to child porn and human trafficking as well as online illegal arms sells. Here is the detailed steps they took to accomplish such a task of course no good hack goes unpublished.
3. The Dark Web
There’s also a smaller subset of the deep web, called the “dark web.” According to Futurism.com, the dark web “allows users to be anonymous while visiting sites, and require browsers that will hide the IP addresses of the servers that run the site.”
6. The Mission
The hacker said, “Initially I didn’t want to take down FH2, just look through it.” But the hacker’s mission changed after discovering that half of the sites on FHII contained child pornography.
9. The Hacker Speaks Up
The hacker wished to remain anonymous, but was still able to relay their story to Motherboard. The hacker verified their identity by using the same email posted in the FHII message.
10. Rookie Move
Surprisingly, this wasn’t some veteran hacker with years and years of experience. “This is in fact my first hack ever,” the hacker said.
12. The Good Of The Dark Web
We should mention that the dark web isn’t only used for unconscionable activity. It’s also a handy tool for whistle blowers who wish to anonymously leave incriminating information.
