Was on /bx/ earlier and found a 'deep web'/secret website thread. It wasn't much to see. It was basically just /bx/ learning how to find CP using Tor. At one point, someone posted a story about how he found some alter-net and what he saw in it. It goes as follows:
So. I just want to point out some things you guys are missing completely.
True "Dark" nets are not nets at all. TOR and protocols like it are an anonymity and "plausible deniability" source. Actual "dark" nets are kept well and truly hidden, and can not be found by any means available to the average channer. Trust me.
Just one example, out of maybe 4 or 5 I have personal experience with, to illustrate what it takes. Do take special note that this involves a great deal of luck.
Friend of mine works at a small car insurance broker's office and asks me to fix a problem with his computer not recognizing the office scanner on the network. This is not related, just how I ended up there.
I brought my laptop, and notice a WEP wireless net with high signal strength. Out of curiosity I turn on a sniffer to pick out the password while I work on the scanner. Few hours later I'm leaving when I remember the sniffer. Got the pass, connected, poked around.
So, it's a basic home network, one system online, with internet access. No firewall. Apparently no antivirus. For the hell of it, I drop in a backdoor before I leave. You never know what goodies you can run across.
Well, I get home and really start digging through this computer. Just your average home computer, most interesting stuff are some tax returns. There's a couple of text files that have what appear to be passwords, random characters and a couple of names.
Not much interesting so I put my worm on it and leave it be for future use maybe.
Weeks later I'm arranging some proxies for a few of my bots when I realize that there are 4 new bots I hadn't set up myself. What I figured later is that the owner of that WEP machine(my friend's boss) had taken a file from it on a floppy, which my worm happily infected, which then spread to a few more machines he used. This is where the interesting stuff begins.
Two of those machines had internet access, of course, but the had apparently NEVER been used to actually ACCESS the internet. They both ran windows 98, completely unpatched. They apparently had internet access only because they were physically networked with other machines that were used for internet access.
Each of these machines had about 3 TB of storage, mostly appeared empty, but was actually packed near full of encrypted bytes. The stuff that was easily viewable included huge amounts of personal information including SSNs and Tax IDs, names, addresses, lists of family and friends, sometimes pets, sometimes a lot of detail such as vehicle, clothing, height, weight, recent medical issues. Huge amounts of information, not every listing had all of it, some were just a name. What they all had were dates.
Couldn't make much sense of that, what I COULD make sense of were the bank accounts. Thousands, probably hundreds of thousands of account numbers, institutions, safety deposit boxes. All over the world. South Africa, Russia, Brazil. Everywhere. Nothing but the basic identifying information and another date, no note of what they might be.
As I was picking through one of these two machines, I noticed a file being written. I figured someone was using the computer at that moment, but the only command events were coming from my worm. Nobody was using a mouse or keyboard. So then I figured it was an automated system process. Watched what it was doing for a minute. Then I realized the computer was communicating on ANOTHER network that wasn't a protocol I recognized.
Because I knew when it started writing and when it stopped, I was able to transcribe the entire file, which was about 78megs. I assumed it was one file and not a chunk of something else, and I was right. It was still encrypted, but it turned out to be fairly simple. Since it was one file, I had a few educated guesses about what a file that size was, and my first was right, it was a movie, MPEG format.
The title was just a random string, the video itself was an overhead view of three men sitting at a table. In the entire 15 minutes of the video, only one spoke. Sounded like gibberish, I figured it was a code or he was nuts. He said things like "broken banana stung red boot", he would pause then say another strange sentence, kept going for about ten minutes. The other two just watched him, one was drinking what I assume was coffee.
Finally he leaned back and asked if they would leave his daughter alone. The guy drinking the coffee just shook his head quickly. The talker started crying. Really crying. Hard. He leaned forward again and said another nonsense sentence and the video ended. Timestamp was about 20 minutes before the video was uploaded to the machine I got it from.
I had a really weird feeling about it, but my best guess at the time was it was some kind of clip from a movie I hadn't seen, and what I saw was a streaming broadcast, the timestamp on the file just being the time it was being sent.
A couple weeks later I went poking through those two computers again and came across another recognizeable file, this time because it had the same header as the one I had already decrypted. It had actually been stored four hours after the first one.
In it, the man that had spoken in the first one was crying like a baby as he fucked what appeared to be the corpse of a young girl, with her throat cut and blood all over the table that the three men had been sitting at in the first video. The other two men were still in the room, standing on either side of the room watching, smoking cigarettes.
I didn't finish watching it, only got about a minute or so in before it sank in what I was seeing. I've seen a lot in my time. This was not a movie.
I cleaned my traces from those systems and haven't looked back.
What I'm still finding hard to believe is that, from the computer I'd originally hacked, these other systems got infected by a floppy. As near as I can tell the two storage computers were on opposite sides of the globe, one in LA, one in Beijing, the WEP computer I'd found was in Dallas, and two of the other infected computers were in Winnipeg. As far as I know, my friend's boss had not left the country. His brother in law had been visiting at the time though.
"crying like a baby as he fucked what appeared to be the corpse of a young girl"
^This seemed a bit much and killed my suspension of disbelief for this otherwise really good short creepypasta. OC author, if you're reading this, well done, you have a knack for writing short horror. You provided enough technical details to make the story seem credible to the average reader but left enough out to avoid lots of serious noticeable errors. You didn't go the lazy magic route that so many bad and mundane creepypastas take, my only advice would be next time leave out stuff like a father fucking his dead kid. I get that he's in deep with the big bads but that's taking things bit too far and it's really hard to swallow.
Don't listen to this guy, OP. It's not taking thing too far at all (no such thing). It does feel a little... cliche, for lack of a better word.

This is actually a really good story.
So, has anyone found any "mysterious" websites that they have managed to obtain access to?
The old eon8 conspiracy comes to mind, though it ended up being a hoax. My friend was so obsessed with it he hacked into the mailserver the day before the timer hit 0, and then used it to mass email people to spread the conspiracy more.
Also hell.com, though in the end I believe it was a small group of artists that have been making money selling email accounts @hell.com
Really a shame since that website always had a very unique look to it.

Actually, I could believe that. People into underground video trading would pay huge bucks to see something that depraved. Perhaps OP stumbled across a guy that's secretly into underground snuff films?

It is possible, yeah. If Blue is the writer of this, he can attribute himself to it on the wiki, for now I've left it as a creepypasta.
Wasn't quite sure if he actually saw someone else post it on /x/ or if that was just a part of his story.

I've heard of an "Assassination market" on that same thread OP I was there and read the story you just posted. People where posting screenshots of the "Hidden Wiki" whatever that is. (I don't use TOR or anything, too lazy to set it up and I don't want CP in my harddrive).
Apparently, the "Assassination market" is a website in the deep web where people put money on people's heads.. and if that person is killed in real life the killer, or the person claiming to have killed that person, gets the reward. I've also heard the deepweb, or the darkweb, whichever one... is used by rapists, murderers, spies, pedophiles, and terrorists to exchange videos, data, etc.
For almost forty years these rumors of snuff films have propagated without a single one ever surfacing. Ideas behind these organized "darkwebs" has never come to any evidence.If anything of this nature did exist, you don't think at least one would have been unearthed?
It is a good creepypasta precisely because it is something that people have been led into believing is a possibility.
They were talking about this: http://kpvz7ki2v5agwt35.tor2web.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page#Forums_.2F_Boards_.2F_Chans The assassination board can't be accessed through tor2web(at least it doesn't work for me), though, so you'll have to download tor yourself to get to it. http://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser provides a simple Tor setup that you can use to access .onion sites. However, this isn't what the copypasta was referring to.
It could just be that they're just well maintained. The 'dark web' that the copypasta mentions wasn't found using the http protocol, so it's not like some drunk guy is gonna misspell facebook.com to a url that leads to some super secret website.
I seriously doubt anyone would be stupid enough to bother posting hits on an internet forum and then pay the killer. Email I'd buy but an honest to god assassins forum would be constantly lurked by the cops and maybe even used for stings.
They've developed a way to anonymously send money to people too. Did you even try going to the page?

I haven't bothered with Tor yet but I find it difficult to believe that anyone would leave a digital trail for the cops to follow or a publicly accessible board for the cops to watch. There are hitmen, no question, but they have regular jobs and work for gangsters and intelligence agncies. Every time someone publicly puts out a hit it's either part of a sting or draws the attention of the police.
Assassins and adventurers make for good characters in fiction but it just doesn't work that way irl.
so youre probably not gonna beleive me but, i was just like you guys once. i mean, and logically you guys are right, it doesnt make any fuckin sense. EVER. i mena cmon, we all know the cops woul dfind out.
thats when i decided to fuck with the system. I went to one of these little hit man sites found in deep web. there arent many but, back on x somone had posted instructions on how to get to it using tor.
i followed the instructions exactly, and posted a "hit" usingthe name of this kid i used to hate back in fifth grade, guys name was davontae. i wont post the last name for the sake of his privacy...least ican do really.....
....why is it the least??? because i was wrong. i posted for a bount of 150$. pretty fucking cheap right right? well apparently, some cold blooded sicko was that desperate for 150......three days later, on the news, the headlines read "fifteen year old boy shot in his parents apartments"
i was in shock. soon after, the guy requested the cash and, knowing how dangerouse he was, i sent it asap.
He's lying. It's a half-hearted attempt to squeeze a few more drops of shitbrix from the OP now that people are getting skeptical.
Pics of the newscast or it didn't happen but nathan will never post a pic of the newscast or anything related to the story because it didn't happen and if it did that would just be used as evidence of him bragging about a murder at his trial.

Nah, it works. The connection is shitty, though. And there's nothing to see, as they wait for TorBank to open:
>Once TorBank gets up, the forum will become active for assassination bets.
I highly doubt that anything will happen there. That's the deep web for you.
