Sensitive online data can be transmitted over what's known as the darknet. Activists from the Arab Spring or whistleblowers use the technology. But also for criminals it's a welcome disguise.
Two Germans are believed to be behind the notorious darknet drug market Hansa. Right after the pair were arrested last month, authorites secretly took control of the site and turned it into a honeypot trap.
The suspect is believed to have provided weapons to the mass shooter who terrorized Munich last summer. He is accused of running a platform for some 20,000 members.
International police have orchestrated an incredible double takedown of darknet drug markets, ensnaring countless users. Users fleeing from one illegal online marketplace were lured into a honeypot trap.
