Most are familiar with the term Darknet. Many have ventured a few times out of curiosity. For us, Darknet is an untapped source of Threat Intelligence and in some cases amusement. The news you see online about things being sold on the Darknet generally focuses on the United States, Russians, credit cards and drugs.
