⭐️After Hydra, Russia's largest Dark Web marketplace site, was shut down last year, nothing changed.
It renamed itself Kraken and business is as usual.
The below clip is of the place where the servers of Hydra/ Kraken are.
The Russian-language Hydra Market platform was used for drug trafficking and money laundering and in 2020 alone had sales on 1.2 billion euros.
#German law enforcement shut down it in April 2022, what they say was the biggest illegal #Darknet market place seizing 23 million euros ($25.2 million) worth of #Bitcoin.

Et celui-là ? Vous le connaissez ? L'avez-vous déjà reçu ? #phishing #caf #paylib #sms Image
Malheureusement (ou plutôt heureusement pour le coup 😅), on ne pourra pas décortiquer l'arnaque car l'hébergeur du formulaire l'a fait sauter rapidement… Image
Malgré tout, l'histoire on la connaît bien… Récupération des données personnelles et bancaires qui seront revendues sur le #darknet...

L'arnaque de #phishing qui usurpe #Netflix, vous la connaissez ? Vous l'avez peut-être déjà reçue ? On vous l'explique, elle est pleine de surprises !!! 🧵
Tout commence avec un #sms (ou #mail) que vous recevez et qui vous prévient que votre dernier paiement a été refusé. Vous êtes alors invité à régulariser la situation en cliquant sur un lien.
En le suivant, vous tombez donc sur un faux site à l'image de Netflix... C'est encore plus flagrant sur ordinateur que sur mobile ! Pour commencer, on vous demande vos identifiants de connexion.

#Putin suggested establishing new intnl settlement system based on ancient Hawala. The urge for Hawala 2.0 shows how desperately 🇷🇺 needs a systemic solution to the issue of intnl payments.Attempts to switch to rub/yuan/gold/crypto haven't been successful
Hawala (originated in 8th century in South Asia) is an informal funds transfer system that allows for the transfer of funds from one person to another without the actual movement of money. Nowadays it is also called underground banking and is widely used, for instance, in Iran
This is how it works: Vladimir needs to send $1000 to his partner Ali, who lives in another country. So he approaches a hawaladar Deniz and gives him the amount of money for Ali. Deniz contacts the hawaladar in Ali's country and asks him to give money to Ali.

O problema com as cryptos #BTC hoje é uma suposta benevolência de regulamentação dos legisladores.

Tentar regular redes peer-to-peer descentralizadas é como tentar regular o vento que sopra na beira-mar. O máximo que eles podem conseguir são algumas manchetes de notícias ⬇
- e algumas pessoas se dando tapinhas nas costas até ficarem entediadas e deixar pra lá. Na verdade, isso pode ser melhor para #Cryptos , já que as exchanges centralizadas são um ponto fraco, é melhor usar mercados descentralizados peer-to-peer darknet como o #Bisq
- e a regulamentação, especialmente se for uma regulamentação pesada, os tornará muito mais populares. É na luta que nos fortalecemos! Não é isso @alan_schramm @38bitcoinheiro ?

E isso foi provavelmente exatamente o que os governos estão tentando evitar ⬇

Vale. Ya.
Me ha costado un poco más recuperarme del último, pero ya tengo las pilas cargadas y vuelvo al toro.
No puedo hablar claro del caso, porque tendrá recorrido judicial (espero). Pero sí quiero contaros una cosa.
¿Sabéis esos menores que se exhiben mucho en las redes?
Poses, posturas o ropas (ausencia de) híper sexualizadas…

Hay menores cuya perfil de IG o TL de TikTok parece querer emular un catálogo erótico…

A veces, esos menores no superan ni los 12 años.
A veces, hablamos de peques (niñas sobre todo) que aún no han alcanzado ni los 7 años y que sus padres exhiben así en cuentas gestionadas por ellos (y de las que obtienen beneficios).

Carlos trabaja en una subcontrata que administra y gestiona la infoestructura de un organismo público del del Estado (pongamos la Seguridad Social, aunque aviso que ni es ese, ni se llama Carlos).
Un día contacta conmigo asustado.
Tenemos nuevo #CasoDeInformáticaForense.
Carlos acaba de volver de vacaciones.
Cuando llega a su puesto, se encuentra lo típico: su sustituto temporal ha hecho lo que le ha dado la gana, como suele pasar.
Ha instalado programas poco seguros en algunos de lo equipos.
Esto incluye:
Pues me temo que tenemos un combo completo: Los cuatro.

Dejar claro que. cualquiera de esos patinazos. son gravísimas brechas de seguridad🤦‍♀️

No daré más datos de lo encontrado en esos equipos, pero mis mecenas tienen aquí lo más curioso que encontramos:…

Comienzo como siempre, advirtiendo de que hay muchos datos que voy a omitir, cambiar adrede, dramatizar o incluso mezclar con otros casos, para que sea imposible localizar a los protas. La esencia de la investigación sí quedará inalterable.
Y, para no ser un pesado llenando el hilo de promo pidiéndoos ayuda, tengo uno que, lamentablemente, sigue siendo una realidad y en el que lo explico todo.

🥰Entenderán así que premie a mis mecenas con datos solo para ellos, que sustentan mi labor🥰

@CT_Bergstrom Cambridge Analytica, Russian intel, etc could have blundered into using evolutionary algorithms in psychological warfare.

Evolutionary algorithms take a multitude of programs and throw them at the same problem. You eliminate the ones that fail & mix together those that succeed.
@CT_Bergstrom With automated and micro-targeted propaganda it's a similar process, informed by your targets' reactions to your latest efforts, their previous responses and psychographic profile.

You don't just elicit responses.

You drive them to particular decisions or attitudes over time.
@CT_Bergstrom But your key targets are not your only test subjects.

You're studying people on an immense scale.

So you have people with matching or near-matching profiles in less critical locations - non-swing states, voters w/more certain voting profiles, etc.

Voy a explicarme mejor sobre este tuit y sobre por qué es mala idea entrar en la #DarkNet o dirigir al público hasta ella (especialmente si se trata de niños), porque ha surgido bastante debate.
La primera vez que escribí este tuit, comenzaba por “He encontrado en TikTok a un idiota que...”.

La gente reaccionó rápido sin entender mi repulsa.

Así que lo borré eliminando el calificativo (que lamento mucho, me dejé llevar y, al final de este hilo, me comprenderéis mejor).
Lo reescribí sin calificar al autor y, para mí sorpresa, mis lectores obviaron que el tipo estaba explicando a niños cómo acceder al sitio más inseguro del cibermundo, para entrar a debatir sobre que no era ilegal 🤷🏻

Así que borré la palabra ilegal y lo subí de nuevo.

@AWeissmann_ Since we're talking about Stone, and Facebook just shut down one of his social-media networks over there, perhaps it's time to discuss what the @FBI has known about how vulnerable they are since 1/2/20.

Also of interest to @GCHQ, @csiscanada @AIVD @CyberGovAU.

@AWeissmann_ @FBI @GCHQ @csiscanada @AIVD @CyberGovAU @ericgarland Let's start with the original 1/2/20 message.

With apologies for the length of the following, and the unpolished prose (it's the second of four sent over four days, and not remotely the longest)...

Here it is...

1/ Obviamente que não subscrevo a metodologia, mas considero importante compreender o estudo para que o mesmo possa ser enquadrado em termos de contexto.

Estamos perante um artigo de opinião no @Publico que nada tem de opinião.
2/ O seu autor, Helder Sebastião, limita-se a citar as conclusões do estudo sem nunca revelar a sua opinião de facto.

Fraco, muito fraco e em linha com todas as minhas críticas aos OCS em Portugal. Não apenas no que tem que ver com #Bitcoin , mas também.
3/ Reconheço que o poder instalado assenta numa base de tradicionalismo e conservadorismo, resistentes à mudança, à inovação e ao crescimento.

Não é, porém, descabido lamentar que continuem a insistir em dar voz a quem manifestamente não entende no tema.

@ericgarland @thespybrief @nielsrosenquist One of the reasons it's useful to have multiple global, interlocking evidentiary maps showing hard, court-admissible evidence is it effectively *forces* many investigations to fuse.

It's not *just* where the money comes from and where it goes.
@ericgarland @thespybrief @nielsrosenquist Other threads go into this in more detail, but it's really more than you can fit into even epic Twitter threads.
@ericgarland @thespybrief @nielsrosenquist Example given: Flip everybody. Sift their computers/devices for more evidence, whether they cooperator or not. Turn cooperators phones into walking bugs. Dial-a-crook.

@ericgarland @bohemiarch @USTreasury And if anything, the results of FinCEN investigations are probably even *more* sensitive of late, given just how much is collectively unraveling, from bitcoin/cryptocurrency to offshore LLCs/Paradise Papers/Panama Papers, #DeutscheBank, Cypriot banks, #DanskeBank, real estate...
@ericgarland @bohemiarch @USTreasury Oligarch assets under targeted @USTreasury sanctions, #Darknet black markets like Hansa & the 420,000+ personal profiles seized by law enforcement, the 72,000+ & 200,000+ users of illegal pornography Darknet sites, the 10,000s of identities given to the IRS by Coinbase, et al...
@ericgarland @bohemiarch @USTreasury Plus all the evidence sources which easily integrate into everything above.

Communications between known conspirators/criminals and other known or unknown perpetrators, LLCs directly connected to 9/11 short selling or directly descended from short-selling vehicles...
