    One of the challenges in fighting cybercrime is that it is borderless; cybercriminals can conduct their malicious activities in countries that do not have strict implementation of cybercrime laws.   However, no matter how difficult and perilous the task of arresting attackers and taking down cybercriminal operations is, it can be achieved through collaboration between security researchers and various law enforcements (LE) across the globe.

    Mention the “Deep Web” and most people will instantly associate it with the part of the Internet used for nefarious and illegal activities. For others, it is this inaccessible side of the Web, the one that requires a lot of technical skill and know-how to reach. Although these assumptions are somewhat correct, they only cover a small portion of the Deep Web as a whole. For over two years, Trend Micro’s Forward-Looking Threat Research Team (FTR) has done extensive exploration of ...
