Site Aims To Be the "Google" of the Underweb

samzenpus posted more than 2 years ago | from the best-of-the-bad dept.

Crime 78

tsu doh nimh writes "A new service in the cyber underground aims to be the Google search of underground Web sites, connecting buyers to a vast sea of shops that offer an array of dodgy goods and services, from stolen credit card numbers to identity information and anonymity tools. From the story: 'A glut of data breaches and stolen card numbers has spawned dozens of stores that sell the information. The trouble is that each shop requires users to create accounts and sign in before they can search for cards. Enter MegaSearch, which lets potential buyers discover which fraud shops hold the cards they're looking for without having to first create accounts at each store.'"

"Underweb" (5, Insightful)

bonch (38532) | more than 2 years ago | (#38744496)

"Cyber underground," ooh, scary. Clearly, the author of this article has never visited any onion indexing sites. Seriously though, f this is a publicly accessible web server, and the creator is working directly with fraud shops, it seems like it's only a matter of time before authorities find a way to catch him. Even just by arresting one of the shop owners who might flip.

Well, the site is publicly accessible at http://megasearch.cc./ [megasearch.cc.] The guy even has his Jabber contact up. It's actually kind of suspicious and makes me wonder if it's all a joke or honeypot.

Zamphatta (1760346) | more than 2 years ago | (#38744842)

I thought the whole thing screams "honeypot". I doubt any of the experiences bad guys will fall for this... which means they'll catch a lot of newbies and people who otherwise wouldn't have tried this line of "work". I wonder if they could get in trouble for entrapment? Hmm. Interesting. Although, I could be totally wrong, I'd still definitely avoid the place like the plague if I was looking to buy or sell there.

TheNastyInThePasty (2382648) | more than 2 years ago | (#38748424)

People don't understand what entrapment is. It's not an undercover cop going "Hey look, there's a nice gold watch over here that someone left, maybe you should take it." and then arresting you when you do. It's not illegal to provide an opportunity and then catch the criminal in the act. It IS illegal to say "Hey, go steal that guy's gold watch or I'll kill your whole family."

See the difference? Read up on it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entrapment [wikipedia.org]

Re:"Underweb" (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#38748962)

Cops cannot sell you drugs and then arrest you for possession. That's entrapment. Cops can have a snitch/narc buy and bust you though. I remember the story of the cops selling crack and then arresting the buyers. Sure they arrested them. Just couldn't stick anything because the cops cannot break the law to catch people who break the law.

It's totally illegal in every country with sane laws. For exemple, it's illegal in the whole Europe and in Japan.
But as the USA obviously doesn't enter in this category, I'm not surprise it's legal here.

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#38745596)

One area where you went wrong is ending your posts with a command to mod the posts down. Slashdotters hate being told what to do. Also, you're mentioning corporations and PR too much without providing any details, so it comes off like random vengefulness, which immediately gets downmods. In addition, your premise is flimsy because the bonch account is perceived as pro-Apple, not pro-Microsoft.

You also need to preview your posts more. You keep getting HTML formatting wrong.

Even cooler, if I find a way to physically find these shops for a bit of profit myself. You see, if you make money illegally and want no-one to know, you're not likely to contact the cops when I come to sell safety insurance, fire, accidental death,dismemberment and family plans. Obviously these people have money and I have not enough, so logically, I should harvest it from them. It's a job I could enjoy and make my moral blindspots actually work for me. It's like I could be doing a public service and getting paid way too well for it.
        Who could care if some haXor on the take should drop dead from aggravated accidental death? Who could care if I turn out his wife to ho while he gathers the required deposit? Who could care if I get to take a well deserved vacation to Clockwork Orangeland? Watching the keystone kops go through the motions is funny but not as rewarding as driving a dipshits life to surreal ruin at a megaprofit!

Organized trolling campaign by GreatBunzinni (-1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#38744502)

GreatBunzinni [slashdot.org] has been posting anonymous accusations [slashdot.org] listing a whole bunch of Slashdot accounts as being part of a marketing campaign for Microsoft, without any evidence. GreatBunzinni has accidentally outed himself [slashdot.org] as this anonymous poster. Half the accounts he attacks don't even post pro-Microsoft rhetoric. The one thing they appear to have in common is that they have been critical of Google in the past. GreatBunzinni has been using multiple accounts to post these "shill" accusations, such as Galestar [slashdot.org] , NicknameOne [slashdot.org] , and flurp [slashdot.org] .

That's not the problem. The problem is that moderators gave him +5 Informative and are now modding down the accused, even for legitimate posts. Metamoderation is supposed to address this by filtering out the bad moderators, but clearly it's not working.

This "shill" crap that has been flying around lately has to stop. It's restricting a variety of viewpoints from participating on the site and creating an echo chamber.

It doesn't look like these guys plan to give up. Eventually the furor will die down and these bastards will get their way. We can't shut down the Internet to protest every day. The idea is to have a tech solution ready before then. IPV6 should help. We have about 3 months to engineer a resilient, fault-tolerant congress-proof Othernet.

Re:Ruining it for the rest of us. (2)

hey! (33014) | more than 2 years ago | (#38746972)

You know, that's actually an interesting point about SOPA.

What this guy is doing is illegal under the RICO act, The problem is mechanism: how exactly would you use RICO to shut him down?

Well, you'd start with an investigation. Unless the guy is a money laundering genius, you should be able to trace back from the infrastructure he uses (DNS, Internet access, server hosting) back to some kind of bank transaction that will reveal his identity.

So what happens when you run into a block like a DNS service that keeps domains' admin and technical contacts secret? That's one of the things SOPA is supposed to address. Well, you get a court order. It's not really that difficult. The modicum of difficulty a warrant presents is a good thing. It discourages draconian actions based on frivolous claims.

But what if the trail of evidence leads to another country? Then we're stuck.

Still, we don't need a massive expansion of government regulatory powers or an attempt to impose our laws over foreign territories to deal with that. What we *really* need is some kind of cyber-crime treaty. It'd work like this: Country A detects somebody in country B that is illegal in both countries. The authorities in A contact the authorities in B, and B agrees to pursue the matter, taking regulatory and criminal law actions to shut down any enterprise that *is illegal according to its own laws*. This preserves the due-process barrier to frivolous claims.

So what if B is not a signatory to the treaty? Then we *do* need to have a law which allows us to do some of the things outlined in SOPA, *subject to due process* and with a right of appeal.

Re:Ruining it for the rest of us. (2)

nitehawk214 (222219) | more than 2 years ago | (#38747754)

SOPA wont hurt organizations like this. If they cant fight him with standard laws, and they use SOPA to blast his site off the internet, it is trivial for him to emerge on a new domain at a new hosting site.

In the meantime all the other customers of the hosting site will be removed from the internet. Collateral damage abound hurts everyone except and the intended target escapes with only a minor inconvenience.

Granted I don't think Megasearch has any legal purposes, and they are qualifying themselves for an internet Darwin award by announcing their intent... but the government will for certain use this against sites and services that do have legal uses.

As someone who has been using the internet since before thw www existed (and used Google as early as its second prototype in 1998 and ever since), as well as many other search engines before Google was created (Lycos, Hotbot, Altavista and many, many others) I can say definitively that Google is the success that is today BECAUSE Altavista (note: the op said astalavista, which I think was a search engine aggregator) sucked so badly. In the late 90's, you could only count on an index update on Altavista every 6 fucking months or so! Abd Altavisra was the best of a bad group.

Altavista had some good search options, like stemwords and wildcards and the "near" operator, but its database was a dead pile of shit. It wasn't even steaming. Alravista was good idea in its earlt days, but Digital Equipment (who ownes it at the time) starved it for capital. They were on their downward slide with their hideously overpriced and unbderperfroming Vaxes and uVaxes anyway and they were starved for cash becuae they were arrogant and turbed their noses the internet. hey were pushing big iron and Vaxnet, baby, and they were goiing to tell the world where to go.

Sorry, but fuck natural language searches - thet're for the technically incomperant. If you can't formulate successful Google searches without the anthropomorphizing the seaech, the problem is with YOU, not Google.

Is this another Kimble scam? (1)

Kim Schmitz, aka "Kimble," the snake-oil "hacker" has a thing for the word "mega." He had a custom-built "Megacar," is rumoured to be the one behind "Megaupload.com." And now we have another one, "megasearch."

Attrition.org has a nice dossier on this phoney baloney hacker. Why people keep falling for his scams is beyond me.

At least his favorite band is Megadeth, so he can't be all bad.
