Internet That Broadcasts Child Pornography And Other Cruel Things

Google Image Search: Deep Web
Like if the internet was not already scary enough, this is something even worse than that! A part of the internet where like every illegal and cruel thing happens. No, I am not talking about spamming, stalking or hacking here, at a certain limit they are still forgivable crimes, and most people are aware of them. Even we have published many security tips about them, but what I am talking about right now is something no one can help you with, once you're stuck with; a part of internet that is unknown to 90% of its users which publishes live murders, rapes, child pornography, tortures, drug dealings, weapons, identity thefts and everything bad you can think off.

"I saw a hastily cut scene showing two adults abducting a couple of kids, making them do funny things while filming them. What followed was one of the lead ladies walking in, exploring their house, being disgusted at certain discoveries and shooting the two right away.” ~ an Anonymous Quora user.

Yes, that actually happens on the internet. Might be thinking how is that possible?

STORY
Let me share something very educational with you today, when the internet was created by Robert E. Kahn and Vint Cerf, there was no search engine, which means you couldn't search a term or a link to visit and you must have to remember the address of the link (URL).

For example: Today to visit Tech Sapling's ‘About' page you can just search the terms or any of the keyword used, on Google, Yahoo or Bing and you would get our ‘About' page opened, but during old times you would have to remember techsapling.com/p/about.html, which is the URL address.

As time passed technology advanced, Alan Emtage came with first search directory and then other search engines came into existence, each and every page could be easily found with the help of web crawlers, which are like virtual spiders who collect links and information via Meta tags. With the introduction of search engines birth of dark sites also happened, these were the sites which didn't want to get noticed by mass by getting linked to search engines and ultimately landing in trouble for their content.
Due to this internet got separated into two parts; the Surface web and Deep web or also known as Dark Net, these terms were coined by Frank Garcia.

DIFFERENCE
Surface Web: the portion of the internet that you can easily access and is linked to search engines is called the surface web. It would be any portal or a link that is live and you can visit it without the need of any particular software or hack. For example Facebook.com or Google.com

Deep Web: It is called the invisible part of the internet. Web sites on this part of the internet are not accessible easily and you need some peer-to-peer connection or software to visit them. Most of the criminals could be found on it, not even being tracked by anyone, means the administrations of the portals would complete anonymously. Although Government has been trying to keep an eye on the Deep Web, but still the success rate is not more than one percent. According to Wikipedia it had 7.5+ Petabytes of data back in 2005. Triple the amount of surface web of today.

WHY IS IT NOT TALKED ABOUT?

Child Abuse
Well, there are many reasons behind it. The Deep Web is an industry, when we use term industry we come into Economics, and it's actually all about money. It's a well-established industry which earns in billions, more than the porn industry itself. And, when any industry feels someone is trying to put them down, they take actions to stop him, and this is what happens actually, there's a story about Reddit user who ordered some weeds from the Deep Web and was trying to criticize them, was ultimately tracked home and even stabbed.

Even though he was using a proxy server.

Deep Web didn't even give a crap about FBI. Silk Road which was one of the marketplaces of Dark Net for weapons and drugs, was shut down in 2013, showed up it's substitutes next very day. Now you can imagine the power of administrators. So, why get involved?

WHAT HAPPENS ON DEEP WEB?
From child pornography, to live torture shows of the poor people, famous people, rapes, murders everything could be found. And, the saddest part is people actually pay to watch them. You could pay a certain website a certain amount to kill a person the way you want and it would all live. Some websites even provide stolen credit cards, debit cards and even you can get real Passports, Driving licenses of any country made in no time.

HOW DO THEY EARN?
Earning process is very simple and anonymous, all the deals are made in Bitcoins and is not tracked. Bitcoin is the number one currency for the black market because of its peer-to-peer money transfer technique. You can buy goods as well as services from the Deep Web.

HOW TO ACCESS?
TOR Explained
Accessing is easy, but exiting is not. Deep Web could be easily accessed by TOR, which uses proxies to hide your IP, but still keep in note that other applications could be tracking you like Flash or Java. Once TOR is installed you can do an IP check and if it's changing dynamically, you're ready to go. You can search for the Hidden Wiki it's like Wikipedia of Deep Web and has all links to the choice of yours.

CONCLUSION
Deep Web could be a great source for students to open up the little bit and access the documents that they might never get to see legally, but there is also a bad side that you never know whom you are getting tracked by. You can always land in jail anytime for using stuff that is illegal and even life imprisonment is given, so keep a note there is a price for everything. I would recommend not to give it a try even. I've too personally never been into Deep Web. The choice is yours.

WARNINGS
Even if your access Deep Web, please keep a note of these things:
  • Unmount your any external printers, webcams or anything that could relate or connect virtual world into reality.
  • Please keep your Flash, Java scripts off.
  • Do not enter any chat room in Deep Web, don’t even think of talking to anyone.
  • Stay away from child pornography, and other violent videos, that may seem pleasing.
  • Don't use your credit card to buy anything.
