Breach Detection BREACH DETECTION

The war on hackers continues with the news that the infamous Darkode forum can no longer be accessed.

The English-language cybercrime forum (Darkode.me) was taken offline this week in a co-ordinated global law enforcement takedown.

According to security reporter Brian Krebs, the forum served as “a breeding ground for botnets, malware and just about every other form of virtual badness.”

The takedown operation has been described by officials as “the largest coordinated international law enforcement effort ever directed at an online cyber-criminal forum.”

The forum was reportedly used by Lizard Squad and other cybercriminals, and was the subject of a cyber breach and hacking investigation carried out by authorities in 20 countries, led by the FBI.
