The use of dark web technologies by criminals is growing, but not in a way that’s conducive to our democratic rights.
The use is happening behind the scenes, in the form of phishing emails, fake social media accounts, and malicious ads that lure victims into clicking on links that will lead them to a compromised site or online service.
A new report published by the cybersecurity firm Gartner lays out the evidence behind the growing trend.
In the report, titled Dark Web Access: What You Need to Know About the Future, the researchers warn that “dark web access may be the most significant threat to the digital rights of the people, governments, and businesses of the 21st century.”
“The emergence of dark Web access has been a defining characteristic of the online age, but its real impact is not only on individuals, but on businesses, governments and the international economy as a whole,” the report reads.
“There is no clear mechanism for the government or anyone else to protect the rights of private citizens from malicious actors in the dark web.”
Dark Web access, Gartners researchers note, is an area where “the ability to use a computer, smartphone, or other device to access an online service or resource without being traced back to the site owner, vendor, or service provider is highly problematic.”
The dark web is where websites and services hosted on servers outside of the United States and other nations with strong anti-money laundering laws can be accessed without the knowledge of users.
These sites often allow users to surf anonymously and browse sites from anywhere in the world, but their security measures are not as strong as they are in the United Kingdom, where the police have been cracking down on criminals using the dark Web to steal information.
The researchers warn the use of the dark net will be a serious threat to our democracy.
“If you’re a government employee, you may be able to bypass your own security and bypass your network security to gain access to a dark web server.
You can be sitting there in your cubicle and browsing the dark website, and you can then walk into your boss office and he can just see it and see what you’ve been doing,” the company’s research chief Michael Hart told Ars Technica.
“And that’s how this entire dark web thing started.”
The researchers also say that criminals will not be able find legitimate sites through the dark-web by simply browsing to them.
Rather, the dark marketplaces will provide the criminals with a unique, obfuscated IP address, which they can use to steal a victim’s financial information and identity.
That will lead to them being able to obtain the victim’s personal information such as Social Security numbers, birth dates, and driver’s licenses.
The companies report also notes that these criminals will be able take advantage of a weakness in the U.S. government’s Digital ID system.
It is the system that is used to verify that someone is a U.N. citizen, and it has been criticized as a tool that allows for fraud.
“The government has already identified a vulnerability in the Digital ID program, and this new report points to it as a potential problem that will allow criminals to steal the identities of U.K. citizens without having to disclose the source of their identities to the authorities,” Hart said.
“It’s not a problem that the U,S.
or anyone can solve, it’s a problem the criminals will use to gain the trust of the victim and their bank accounts.”
The report’s findings also indicate that criminals can now create fake accounts on the dark side of the Dark Web, allowing them to conduct fraudulent transactions and access information without a trace.
“This new generation of malicious actors will be leveraging the lack of a strong ID-sporting standard to operate with little or no detection by the banks,” Hart noted.
The report also suggests that dark web users may be vulnerable to the likes of botnets and other malware that are also becoming increasingly sophisticated.
“These dark web providers and services may provide an additional layer of protection from attackers by offering a low-risk and low-effort alternative to traditional methods of attack,” the researchers write.
The research also notes some of the tools and services that have sprung up in recent years are also a growing threat.
“As the adoption of the web has increased, new types of botnet and malware have emerged, such as the ‘phishing’ attack, ‘bot-spamming’ attack or ‘cyber-spying’ attack,” Gartener researchers wrote.
“However, many of these methods and services also enable malicious actors to conduct targeted attacks against targeted users or websites.”
Garters researchers noted that in some cases, the use and use of these tools may be in direct conflict with the Digital Identity Protection (DIP) law that is currently being drafted by the U-S.
The legislation would require all companies with an “internet-connected” computer to use an “anti-phishing” tool in place of a user-
