The “Dark Web” is commonly associated with criminal activity, hacking, and other controversial topics, but it is not illegal by nature.
However, it is a common tool among criminals due to the anonymity of the Tor Browser which is required to access it.
Ordering various products for delivery is also possible on the dark web, including drugs and fake credit cards.
Various services are offered to visitors of specific websites, too, including hacking and assassination services.
Using Tor, we visited several marketplaces that offered guns, drugs, illegal services, fake goods, and malware through a similar interface to a regular online store.
Additionally, it must be noted that the dark web not only plays host to a variety of illegal marketplaces – is also used to distribute illegal material.
