Operation Onymous Grabs More Darkweb Sites Than Silkroad 2.0,

Looks like the net cast by authorities over the Silkroad 2.0, has rounded up more than just SIlkroad and the mastermind behind it. The effort is comprised of law enforcement of 17 nations launched, I assume inside the TOR network. The operation nabbed 410 hidden services leading to the arrests of 17 and the seizure of $1 million in Bitcoin, 180,000 Euros in cash, drugs, gold and silver.
Blake Benthal was the headliner and people are wondering how did FBI hack a TOR network to catch the culprits. After reading the piece on ARS, it is not rocket science, the agent D'Agostino is too clever and the criminals were dumb. Like in too clever dumb.
Either way, 27 sites were nabbed along with Silkroad 2.0, and “offer for sale illicit goods and services of one kind or another.”
