Dark web markets
Aside from all the security recommendations, we all know that dark web is mostly comprised of illegal online stores . These stores are usually a place for buying and selling drugs, weapons and body organs.
However, there are other types of dark web markets in the realm of technology and computers. These dark web markets are known as malware stores and they sell software that cannot be sold on the web. Dark web markets earn huge amounts of money by selling malicious software.

There are different types of malware that you can buy and sell on the dark web markets. Trojans, ransomware, botnets, and ATM malware are among the types of malicious software you can buy and sell on these stores easily.
Trojans usually aim at stealing users personal data and they usually cost $10 or more on the dark web markets. Depending on the type of Trojan and the features it offers, the price might be different.
Ransomware which is now a big problem in the world of technology is also available on the dark web markets. This type of malware costs something between 250 to 300 dollars and once used on the victim’s computer, it encrypts all the data on it. Paying the ransom to the hacker is the only way to get the encryption key.
RAT or Remote Access Trojan is another type of malware which costs something around $500 or more. A RAT such as AndroRat must be installed on the victim’s device and once installed, it will allow the hacker to access all the data on the victim’s phone.
Botnets can also be found on the dark web markets for something between 200 to 1500 dollars and they are one of the prerequisites of a DoS or DDoS attack. Botnets are in fact a network of zombies that are ready to sabotage with a bot master command. These networks start sending too many request to the server until it is down and our of reach.

Dark web markets owners especially the ones which sell malware are among the most professional hackers who can easily hack your computer and steal all your data and ruin your life. Do not take these as a joke or a sort of exaggeration. Their million dollars business knows no value for human life and they would destroy everything on their way.
