One just can't "stumble" on the dark web...

There is a ton of disturbing stuff on the "normal" web as well. Weirdos and sick people will always exist.

The most common use for TOR is for enhanced anonynimity (I cannot spell that word for crap lmao) on regular internet. And bypassing things like the great internet wall of china.

Sounds like his kid stumbled across the infamous ##snipped## (which you can only get to if you know the exact address or the address of a wiki that lists various onion sites). The Tor "darknet" is pretty much completely dominated by illegal/criminal sites, it's one of the downsides of having a highly anonymous network...you tend to attract the criminal element.

The hitman thing on the deep web has always intrigued me, I just can't get my head around how it could possibly be true (not that I'm saying I definitely think it is completely made up).

It's well known that the average hitman is a throw away tool in organized crime, they're very rarely the 'brains' of the operations.

Most of them are too scared to even do business on a phone, let alone leave a load of evidence and pretty substantial trail on a computer.

I don't see how many real 'hitmen' are really offering their services up on an internet that not even a lot of seasoned web people are comfortable using.

If i wanted to get into killing for money I'd join some sort of criminal gang, I wouldn't stick myself up on some deep website for 'everyone' to see and just cross my fingers that i really was well hidden and couldn't get stumbled on by the authorities.

How many hitmen would really have the knowledge and trust in something like bit coins to risk their own life and freedom for some?

It just seems a bit made up to me.

Then again I could be completely wrong and showing how naive i really am (probably more likely).

You're thinking like a rational person! The type of person that advertises on a website as a killer is probably some Rambo wannabe with low reasoning skills.

Probably *that guy* that gets drunk in bars and starts telling people like me that he's fricking SAS


Or maybe a conman? After all, once you've paid a deposit for murder, you can't get it back and might even get blackmailed.

Theres actually more than one so called "dark web", some even need specialist clients to access.

Dark webs are also a frequent topic on these boards, not like its a new discovery

Dont knock the Darknet just yet, it may become our last great hope for free electronic communication! Your Goverment and TPTB use the resources of the undernet all the time for nefarious purposes, data mining being only one of them.

Learn how to use the undernet! It may just save us all one day!

Hate to admit it, but I have no idea what you folks are talking about.

The dark web? Like the dark side?

I know there's porn, and I once stumbled across a terrible site that showed dead bodies, but there's something worse?

Wow. Learn something (awful) every day.

Gotta go make sure my kid-proof software is up to date (we just unplug the computer and tell him its broken again).

They are talking about Tor the Onion Skin Router amongst other things.

Calling BS on the stumbled part - you don't just stumble on the deep web. First you have to download TOR, then you need an address, like the hidden wiki.....kid likely went there intentionally.

For anyone thinking that Tor seems like a good idea i recommend doing your homework on the subject matter because if you dont know what you are doing on these type of servers you can encounter some very nasty Malware and Viruses!

Be very carefull!

Dont go ordering any Armalite rifes or teenage brides! LoL

They're so-called 'dark web' because they're not indexed by any search engines, and .onion sites are not the only 'dark webs' out there. Google only indexes a tiny portion of the 'visible web'. A site found in the 'dark web' is not necessarily an illegal site, it's just a site using a 'hidden service', or one that simply isn't indexed. In addition to TOR, you have Freenet and I2P.

Illegal sites like the one described in the OP's article were all the rage on the web back in the 90's and early 2000's, before rounds of arrests and sting operations made the operators and purveyors of such sites turn to tools such as TOR. Still, there are sites found on the freeweb that carry all manner of illicit content, especially credit card fraud and drug trafficking.

I wouldn't fret over the illicit content on the 'dark web', there's far more of it on the visible web, and you can believe the police/Feds have their informants working on all these sites.

I´ve tried to install and run but no such luck.

Almost as if it DOESNT work for real..
Just a bunch of kids hyping...

Even tried the "support" at TOR devs.
They had no idea why it didnt work so..

I've been on it. Some of the things I saw were pretty extreme. It's like the back alley of the internet.

There was one website that sold human bones (including skulls) for use in satanic rituals lol.

For those saying that people don't just stumble on the dark web, although that is true, anyone can stumble on a tutorial on how to get it, and I think that's what the article says, that the boy found one of those tutorials and used it to see what that dark web was all about.

And although we see more freedom (and less responsibility) on the dark web, there's nothing in there that cannot be found on the "normal" internet.

Not to disturb you or anything, but those two things that you described can easily be found on what's known as the 'surface web' or in layman's terms, the regular internet. The tip of the iceberg. I remember being around 13 years old and stumbling upon a website that hosted the infamous Budd Dwyer video (the guy who shot himself in the head in 1987 in front of live news cameras) and it wasn't even difficult to find. My point being, that's stuff you can find on the regular internet. The dark web gets much worse. It's basically the black market for the internet where you can buy drugs, human body parts, snuff films, real rape videos, child porn. There are even websites where a person can hire a hitman if they want to, not to mention that there have been a few uncovered incidents of child trafficking. It's more difficult for law enforcement to catch people on the dark web because they use a program called Tor which more or less conceals their IP address with a process called 'onion routing'.

That's exactly what happened. You don't just "stumble" across something there.
