The Internet

CWmike writes "The internet is no stranger to crime, writes corporate investigator Brandon Gregg. From counterfeit and stolen products, to illegal drugs, stolen identities and weapons, nearly anything can be purchased online with a few clicks of the mouse. The online black market not only can be accessed by anyone with an Internet connection, but the whole process of ordering illicit goods and services is alarmingly easy and anonymous, with multiple marketplaces to buy or sell anything you want. Understanding how the market thrives — unregulated and untraceable — can give you a better sense of the threats (or resources) that affect you and your business. To that end, Gregg started with $1000 and a took journey into the darker side of the Internet starts with two open-source programs: Bitcoin and the Tor Bundle."
