FBI has seized Deep Dot Web and arrested its administrators
Zack Whittaker reports:
The FBI have arrested several people suspected of involvement in running Deep Dot Web, a website for facilitating access to dark web sites and marketplaces.
Two suspects were arrested in Tel Aviv and Ashdod, according to Israel’s Tel Aviv Police, which confirmed the arrests in a statement earlier in the day, Local media first reported the arrests.
Arrests were also made in France, Germany, and the Netherlands. A source familiar with the operation said a site administrator was arrested in Brazil.
Read more on TechCrunch, but for some more insights, do read @5auth’s tweets on Twitter about DeepDot and the seizures. Although he may be tied up for a while (not literally, I hope!)
Perfect, thank you.
And I wouldn’t expect an arrest either but I do expect a knock and talk. Time to set my “come back with a warrant” door mat out.
