Criminal underworld and black marketeering of child pornography are becoming famous. It is becoming complicated for authorities to stop and investigate these things. No doubt, it is the darkest corner of the internet. The Dark Web Wiki (a part of the dark web) is becoming a leading platform for child abuse.
The dark web becomes a place where murder and rape are advertised openly. In this situation, authorities are powerless. Turbulent world of darknet, including the Hidden Wiki, is creating challenges for authorities. It is not possible to reach there directly from Google. There are special tools and browsers to access these websites.
Digital Underworld is Posing Challenges
The digital underworld got the attention of numerous web users (law-aiding). In an attempt of anonymous hacking into Lolita City, a site came on the surface the “Hidden Wiki”. It offers images of child abuse for pedophiles.
This anonymous hacktivists approached the hosting company Lolita City and demanded immediate removal of repugnant material. Their demands were unheard; therefore, they launched a digital assault (two-pronged) to force the company offline and breach the security system of Lolita City. They publically expose their login details of over 1,500 pedophiles. Anonymous claimed that you can’t support, promote or host child pornography.
Bid Deals about the Dark Web Wiki
This action grabbed attention in parts because of its presentation from anonymous. They were targeting government corporations and agencies for hacking. For many people, the Hidden Wiki is a significant culprit. Its openly available unsavory content was revelatory. This site is not helping pedophiles who are advised to create new and secured websites.
They are ready to work on new platforms to distribute images of child pornography. Remember, these platforms promote cyber-attacks, contract killing and money laundering services. You can purchase restricted chemicals from these platforms.
Remember, technically remarkable evidence or information is not available about the Dark Web Wiki. It looks similar to an essential website where users can update lists of URLs. These links are divided into categories for the convenience of users.
The hidden wiki is nominated as a market of wares and ideas for the dark web. Its operations are similar to the black market in the cyberspace, and it is working as an anonymous platform. Remember, people deal with wrong things on this platform because it is anonymous. They can put up ads to hire assassins and become a haven for the content of pedophiles.
Keep it in mind that hidden wiki depends on free software “Tor”. It is necessary to maintain anonymity and stay away from average web users. Internet traffic of Tor users bounced around an international network of computers. As a result, the source can obscure. The Hidden Wiki and other similar websites on the network require you to download and install Tor software. Remember, its actual location is obscured.
It is not possible to identify people on this website. You can’t find out with whom you are talking. For intelligence authority and police, it is not easy to investigate a case of contract killing or child abuse. Involvement of dark web can make things complicated.
The USA Government is Behind Tor
Unfortunately, Tor was invented by the USA government. Use of this software is legal in different corners of the world. It may help pedophiles to avoid detection. Moreover, it was helpful for dissidents of China and Iran to circumvent to some talented security engineers. These engineers are working with funding from the USA department.
It is not possible to access the deep web or dark web without Tor network. Authorities may lack skills to handle these issues, or they are bound legally not to do anything. Each security expert has a different point of view. Without any doubt, the Hidden Wiki and other similar websites are posing challenges to officials. They are trying to address this issue with the use of different methods.
For the safety of children, it is essential to identify these criminals. Unfortunately, the Hidden Wiki is an integral part of the underground internet. This world is entirely different from the surface web.
Understand the Mystery of Dark Web
The dark web is linked with numerous illegal activities, such as selling and buying of drugs, stolen financial data, firearms and valuable information. People get attracted toward dark web because they can handle different illegal activities without revealing their identity. You have to use the “Tor” browser.
It permits users to access .onion pages that are encrypted to increase your privacy. Remember, you can use Tor to browse normal website as an anonymous user. Tor browser will request to re-route connections several times before attaining their final destination. For instance, if you want to connect to a website in Spain while living in Singapore, Tor browser will route you to change your location.
A Platform for Good and Bad People
There is a misconception that only bad people use dark web. Remember, good and bad people can use this web at the same time. It is not possible to determine the actual depth of this web. The Hidden Wiki and other similar platforms may help you to trace the physical location of a person or an entity.
It is a secure method to purchase restricted herbs and games. For instance, it is easy to buy an old pot from the dark web. Old video games and harder drugs are easily available at dark web. No doubt, cybercriminals operate in the dark web to offer fake passports and documents. People may find professional services, such as assassinations.
Command and Control Infrastructure for Malware
Secretive nature of these platforms makes it easy to hide and host malware controlling links and servers. For instance, Cryptolocker malware is famous for encrypting documents of a victim for ransom. This smart malware can adjust the language and price according to the current location of the victim.
No impactful and particularly lasting solutions against these activities are available. The dark web is a safe place for the drug trade. You can find online (high-profile) outlets for drugs and illegal services.
Why the hidden wiki and similar platforms need Tor?
Tor can encrypt data and make you an anonymous visitor. Tor servers, proxies and clients use .onion. Remember, it is a top-level domain suffix for anonymous onion services or hidden services. The main purpose of Tor and this domain is to keep both the person accessing the data and the data provider anonymous. It will be complicated to trace these people.
Websites get an extra level of security with the .onion domain through EV HTTPS certificates. Tor network has proxies, such as Tor2Web to access onion services from other browsers. Keep it in mind that .onion gateways can give better trust and anonymity to users. Onion service and gateway may fingerprint a browser and access IP address data of the user.
A few proxies use special catching techniques to offer trouble-free page-loading. You will need special permissions and password to access a particular platform on the dark web. Before using any platform, make sure to protect your sensitive data. Your computer should have reliable anti-virus protection to avoid malware and hackers. Remember, if you visit the dark web, you can be a victim of data theft and other issues.
