Zur’s premise is that the Dark Web can be a tool as useful as the Internet browsers we use every day in our work. Here are his five things to know about the Dark Web.
1. Anyone can access the Dark Web, even you
Accessing the Dark Web is a lot easier than you think. There are a few dark web browsers that you can download, just as you would with Google Chrome or Safari, but the most notable of them is Tor. Tor, otherwise known as the ‘Onion Router’ for all of the deep layers of web, allows you to surf the dark web through multiple routing server connections around the world that are encrypted at each step. This allows users to access so-called hidden services underground while maintaining anonymity online.
2. It’s not all bad
So, it’s definitely true that the Dark Web is home to the darkest corners of the earth, including platforms where you can buy illegal goods, launder currency, get fake passports, and even hire killers. However, there’s a much more innocent side of the Dark Web that would surprise most people. There are cookie recipe sites, book recommendations, and communities of people who are simply looking to avoid Internet tracking.
3. Using the Dark Web won’t give you a virus, but you do need to be safe
4. You may find your data or your company’s
Distasteful as you may find it, doing Dark Web due diligence on yourself or your company is a useful exercise. It’s important to know what information is out there for sale that could lead to misuse of data and theft. Knowing about your vulnerabilities is just one aspect of threat prevention.
5. Bitcoin is the currency of choice
Bitcoin digital currency offers an anonymous source of payment, which of course makes it attractive to those looking to avoid tracking. With low supply, convenience and impossible to counterfeit, Bitcoin is generally considered to be the most popular digital currency on the Dark Web.

If you own a mobile phone, “you can be bugged, tracked and hacked from anywhere in the world”. That was the throughline of a particularly problematic story on the 60 Minutes program last night. It’s now being hailed as “the end of privacy” for all Australians, but let me assure you, that moment passed a long time ago. “How it has been done, has never been shown before”, claimed the 20-minute report which demonstrated how a vulnerability in a global forwarding network can be “hijacked” to listen in on a user’s calls and text messages in real time. After a lot of teasing and set-up, the report eventually took us to a basement in Germany, where security researcher Luca Melette demonstrated how he could intercept a phone call between the reporter and Australian Senator Nick Xenophon. Luca was able to intercept the call (if we’re to believe that there wasn’t any camera trickery going on), as well as a text message sent between the pair. Big drums. The hack has been reveeeeeeealed. Luca was able to do that by jacking into a vulnerability in the SS7 signalling system. SS7 is used for a whole bunch of things, including cell tower handover […]
