deep web/tor/silk road marketplace

Postby insideout » Sun Sep 23, 2012 9:12 am

Any body use this tor browser? What is the deep web/silk road market place?

So far i have discovered that the tor browser allows you to browse online anonymously, and the silk road market place uses its own currency but can only be accessed using the deep web (tor browser) and it is an online marketplace for weapons/drugs and stuff. My friend claims he had the best weed sent to his door step with royal mail using the silk road market place.

Any way i am not interested in buying weapons or drugs, however it is quite interesting to know more about it.

my housemate who is a software engineer or something along those lines, suggested its pretty legit in that you cant be tracked....but think for one minute what would happen if the royal mail just happened to intercept your parcel with a 1kg of weed in it, with your address on the front...

Don't quote me on this but I think that post in the UK is the responsibilty of the person named on the item. So sending the 'item' to the right address but wrong name should offer some protection.

Can't see how you could be prosecuted for having stuff sent to you, if that was the case David Cameron would be submerged in the stuff. :lol:

just gonna raise a note on this thread that you are discussing things that will ping in searches... Might not be in best interests of all involved if someone puts a flag on you for posting about these particular topics.

big brother IS watching you

imagine a world where a government official followed you around recording where you went,
made copies of any letters you sent, noted who you spoke to and what you said

thats the internet today in the UK

The govt don't have to do anything. We put everything on public view every day, do their legwork for them... They know when you're in work, when you're shopping, when you're at the cinema, pub, restaurant, gym... And why? Because we're thick enough to tag ourselves everywhere.

Anyone still interested in this topic?

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-10-2 ... ian-cities

Seems SilkRoad was finally taken down by the feds this year. But online rhetoric seems to suggest that, as was the case with Napster, new online market places are popping up and fighting for the vacated market share. And they seem to be better organised and secure (don't take my word for it).

Snowden seems to have confirmed what most thought about the interweb and general snooping on the population too. No matter how barmy that seems. And more relvant is that the Tor browser was/isn't as secure as they hoped and it did not afford insurmountable anonymity. Whether the coders have now updated the browser I don't know.

i read somewhere tor browser was invented by the military, then someone hacked it, major fuckup that :lol:

on a similar note, anyone else getting really pissed off with the amount of cookie warning messages on websites these days? Theyve been using this info for donkeys, we know this, why do they have to come clean all of a sudden?

The constant accept cookies is a right pain in the arse. The powers that be (don't know if uk or eu) decided that as cookies can be malicious or be used for tracking the website would have to ask if you were happy to accept them.

So now all the legit websites that we were happy with are constantly asking and all the malicious sites are just using them anyway. Yet another case of government not understanding computers.

Yeah. It's doing my nut in too. I don't wanna click on anything so I just try and view the website moving around the pop-up. Getting a bit annoying.

I also seem to get loads of websites on my phone which open up the AppStore without me having pressed anything. Don't these fuckwits know anything about keeping users happy=repeat business. I don't wanna play candy c**ting crush you wank stain of a website.
