Trustev is a fraud protection startup that helps its customers from getting ripped off. Which is why it monitors the so-called “Dark Web” so closely for stolen customer information, like the Uber accounts that hackers took and put up for sale.
The Dark (or Deep) Web, which refers to areas of the Internet normally inaccessible to users without special anonymizing software, first came to prominence with the Silk Road trial, where Ross Ulbricht was convicted of running an infamous online narcotics superstore.
But there are other marketplaces on the Dark Web, and you can get more than just lots of drugs. It gets a little darker and a lot more strange once you’re outside the bounds of both legality and good taste.
“It’s amazing how creative people are,” says Trustev CMO Rurik Bradbury.
