Keeping it on the Down Low on the Dark Web

Dark web sites getting darker due to exposure?

The rate at which dark web markets are being compromised, in one way or another, has gotten high enough that much of the online criminal activity has moved to new platforms. Rather than communicating in forums on dark web sites, there has been a shift toward one-to-one communication applications that provide end-to-end encryption. This may make investigations more difficult, because there is no central location for discussions. Establishing trust and communication will be much more difficult.
