We’ve got some arrests that might be of value

I have two recent arrest articles that might bee of interest to people. Cybercrime is such a hard thing to track down, and arrests in this field should be talked about.


‘DisrupTor’ dark-web crackdown leads to 179 arrests by international law enforcement
This is something of interest because we know what the dark web can hide. The Security box has talked about this in passing, and questions have come up.

U.S. and European law enforcement agencies on Tuesday announced the arrest of 179 alleged drug traffickers and the seizure of millions in cash and virtual
currencies in one of the largest takedowns of dark-web commerce to date.

The crackdown seized more than 1,000 pounds in drugs and targeted an illicit supply chain of opioids, a highly addictive class of drug that has ravaged
American lives in recent years. More than two-thirds of the arrests occurred in the U.S., officials said.

Its interesting that the majority of the arrests came from right here in the United States. It really makes you wonder who is behind all of these things we read aobut on a regular basis.

There is more, including links to other terms and tags and things, so feel free to check this one out.


‘Dark Overlord’ hacker pleads guilty, sentenced to 5 years for extortion threats

Someone finally pleading guilty for something. This may be a good sign. An overlord is someone who oversees a project in this space, kind of like your supervisor or even their boss in the workplace.

Years after he threatened to publicly release information from hacking victims unless they agreed to his digital extortion demands, Nathan Wyatt is headed
to a U.S. prison.

A judge in the Eastern District of Missouri on Monday sentenced Wyatt, 39, to five years in prison after he pleaded guilty to assisting a hacking crew
known as The Dark Overlord. Wyatt, who had previously entered a plea of not guilty, participated in a court hearing by phone from a jail in St. Charles
County, Missouri.

“I’d like to apologize for the role that I played in this,” Wyatt said, through tears, adding that he struggles with a mental illness that affects his
decision-making ability. “I can promise you that I just want to go home to my family. I’m out of that world, and I don’t want to see another computer for
the rest of my life.”

You want to go home? Did you think about your actions and what it could cause? Sure, we have all made mistakes, but the law is the law. Een if I were to comit a crime, I wo0uld have to answer authorities just like you do. It does not matter the crime in my opinion, what to others think?


The comment boards await you. Have fun with this one.
