Interview With German-Plaza Admin

German-Plaza,  Is a market focused at digital items, we recently conducted an interview with one of the admins. Here it is:

Admin proof –

Who are you and what is your background concerning the darknet?

I’ve been part of the regular clearnet crime scene for about eight years and I entered the darknet about four years ago. Since then, I have had a lot of positive and also negative experiences with several markets and vendors. I originally began in the German scene where my team and I made a name for ourselves. If we saw anything suboptimal on the darknet, we couldn’t just watch helplessly. We acted immediately and were able to rectify justice and gather invaluable experiences.

Obviously I won’t any nicknames or specific projects which could be retraced back to us. I’m sure you understand that. =)

What is your role in German-Plaza?

As far as I’m concerned, I am responsible for both the vendor support and the marketing. We advertise internationally on a lot of sites and on clearnet and darknet forums, advertisements on Tor, on .onion wikis, and of course on listings such as Reddit, DNStats and DeepDotWeb. Basically, it’s my goal to increase our customer base.

Furthermore, we have a great coder and another admin who are concerned  with internal matters such as customer contact, site improvement, and conflicts and support. However, we don’t draw clear lines between our work areas and often help each other out. In doing so, we are able to supplement each other’s work and offer our customers the best experience possible.

How long have you been around?

German-Plaza opened its doors in April 2015. It initially started as a German-local only project. We, however, quickly realised that German-Plaza could also be turned into an internationally endeavor for users and vendors, especially regarding digital goods. Hence, we decided to enter the international market –  this turned out to be a prudent decision. Since the opening of our website, we have just under 6000 users and over 100 vendors with the trend going upwards. This shows us that our concept appeals to both users and vendors.

Can you tell us how german plaza started?

Digital goods such as CCs, ELVs and OBs are traded in frequently on a lot of forums and communities. Usually, the trading isn’t relatively safe for either the vendor or the buyer, and since there isn’t a single community or forum with a high market share, we decided to change this. Our goal was to create an international marketplace specializing in the secure trading of digital goods. This plan was feasible, so we acted swiftly, and thus German Plaza was born.

In addition to the goals mentioned, there were also a few others: we wanted to offer a platform where trades are done quickly and simply. We could also offer an responsive customer service ensuring security for our customers when trading. Trades should no longer be needed to be handled with communication sites like Jabber, which cannot offer the security and simplicity that we offer.

What distinguishes German-Plaza from other markets?

The main difference is that we are currently specialized in digital goods. For example, CC BINs are shown explicitly and you can search for certain BINs as well as other product specifications thanks to our highly-functional search engine. Once the user decides to buy a product he or she will receive it instantly.

We offer vendors a perfect platform for selling accounts, CCs and digital goods of any kind. Furthermore, we focused on keeping trades simple and the replacement system just/fair. Every single vendor defines the replacement rules on his or her own. In addition to that, there is a feedback system. If the buyer regards the replacement rules, he cannot be scammed at all. Our customers appreciate this safety a lot.

Given the feedback system, the buyers can buy from highly-rated vendor, which brings up another point: vendors will want to gain positive feedback in order to attract more buyers and will do so by selling good products for good prices – a win-win situation. Buyers rely on the good feedback and so do vendors. Vendors are given an incentive to achieve customer satisfaction.

Does your market specialize only in carding digital goods or other types as well?

It’s not only about carding. Our vendors also offer many types of accounts, banking logins, gamekeys, root-servers and smtps. We plan to add more products in the future.

Can you share some interesting insights as a market admin?

There are a lot of challenges that come with being a market admin. On the one hand, it’s a balancing act to satisfy vendors on one hand, and buyers on the other. Additionally, there are a lot of expectations for our support. Moreover, we have to enforce maximum security and transparency and protect the site from attacks.  Besides that, we are always looking to enhance our market/website and implement new features and improvements. As market admins we are busy all the time. =)

Any tips to the users for keeping them safer?

Being on the Internet, every user has to prioritize his or her safety. This applies to both the Clearweb and the Darknet. An encrypted hard-drive, Socks-proxies, and a VPN should be part of every user’s standard equipment if he or she wants to stay active on the Darknet. Better safe than sorry! =)

Furthermore, we suggest that our users to use our PGP and 2-FA and never use the same password twice. PGP and 2-FA are very safe solutions in order to prevent attacks from third parties.

By taking these precautions, you can safely be a contributing member on the Darknet.

What do you think about the other markets which are currently operating. Are there any market admins you think that are doing a good or bad job?

I think a lot of markets are doing a good job. However, we do not compare ourselves wth other markets since we take another a different approach by specializing on digital goods. Our focus is on improving our market frequently and putting our customers’ wishes and ideas into action. In the end, every user should decide for him or herself which market he or she wants to trust.

Anything else you want to add to the readers?

If anyone has feedback, questions, or any kind of problem, please write a support ticket to us and we will take care of it. We place a lot of importance on our users’ opinions. So if anyone thinks that we could do anything better, please feel free to contact us. Alongside our users, we have the ability to make our market even greater!

Deepweb Drug Trafficking Is Not A Major Concern For Police

Websites, including our own, have been filled with news of Germany’s recent drug takedowns. Nearly every article referenced what Holger Muench, head of Germany’s Federal Police, said after the Munich shooting. Muench spoke of cracking down on the deepweb. Little has been known until a recent interview with the LKA that shed some light on the topic.

Berlin Online received the opportunity to interview Olaf Schremm, head of the German Federal Police’s drug department. During the interview, drug importation, legalization, and the deepweb were discussed. Schremm’s words on the subject were the next look into the LKA’s policies and stances on drug users and drug crimes.

The reporter from Berlin Online initiated the discussion by asking about the current drug problem in Berlin, “in general.”

Schremm spoke, initially, of consumers. “We know that in Berlin all known drugs are consumed,” he said. Cannabis products have been the most used. Heroin and cocaine use have been the next line of focus. However, ecstasy, amphetamine, and crystal meth use has been on the rise. But specific drugs are a concern for the LKA.

Drug-reconnaissance books of Focus

Schremm reassured the reporter that consumers are not a concern for police. Out of the 14,000 drug offenses reported by the Police Crime Statistics (PKS), 9,000 cases involved consumers. He said that police must arrest consumers under the current narcotics law, but the focus is not on them. Continuing to clarify the numbers given in the PKS, Schremm said that adjustments had been made to those numbers. In reality, the number of consumers who get prosecuted has been “very slim.”

The LKA has only seen an increase in drug use and distribution when looking at synthetic drugs. Otherwise, the head of the drug department described, numbers have remained essentially consistent. External drug sources such as the deepweb and new labs throughout Germany have had little impact on current consumer drug offenses.

Trade routes for the classic drugs have not changed either, Schremm said. Ecstasy and amphetamine have still been smuggled into Germany from various locations in Europe. Heroin and cocaine have still been smuggled in from Asia and South America. The only change seen by the LKA has been the importation of more exotic drugs. Rarer, harder to find drugs, he said, are coming in via the deepweb. Postal services are rarely used for the classic drugs; newer synthetic drugs have dominated that sector.

The Berlin Online reporter shifted the focus of the interview to drug traffickers. He asked “What about investigations into drug traffickers?”

Schremm admitted that the LKA have few options in respect to taking down traffickers. The methods used have not changed. Police forces have been highly restricted in their ability to investigate distributors. Specific protocol has to be followed, he said.

Schremm explained that due to the restrictions in place, the LKA had become vigilant in watching suspected drug traffickers. Law enforcement has been increasingly concealed in their actions. Any preliminary investigation in recent drug busts had to be unnoticeable. He explained that raids only take place when the LKA knows a prosecution would follow. More than “a little” probable cause is required.

Deepweb drug trafficking had thrown another wrench in the LKA’s ability to investigate drug traffickers, Schremm explained. The Federal police have not been capable of monitoring the darknet as necessary. He said the department that is focused on darket and deepweb activity is very small. Even though the LKA has been falling behind in tracking deepweb activity, Schremm said deepweb trade in Germany is slow.

“Some very young and tech-savvy guys have made a fortune there in a short time,” Schremm admitted. Those days are over. However, standard investigation rules are used to observe suspected deepweb vendors that do make appearances. The one biggest difference in deepweb investigations is the LKA’s monitoring of mailboxes. Local dealers, he went on, are watched making direct deals. That had not been the case for traffickers on the deepweb.

In short, he summarized, many of the investigations and busts made are due to the LKA’s obligation to follow protocol. Deepweb buyers and consumers, like street buyers, are not a focus for police. But if illegal drug activity is seen, the LKA must pursue the suspect. While the number of deepweb-related busts has increased, the investigation tactics have not changed. Until more of the concerning drugs are seen coming into the country from the deepweb, tactics will remain the same.

New Documents Reveal the FBI May Have Hacked Every TorMail User Illegally

In 2013, the FBI took down Freedom Hosting and with it, brought down a minimum of 23 child pornography sites. The seizure of child pornography (CP) servers was considered a win by law enforcement and many Tor users. However, recently unsealed documents reveal just how far the FBI stepped outside the law.

During the investigation, agents discovered a connection between an email service and many CP websites. The FBI was then given a warrant to hack 300 users of TorMail, the email service in mentioned.

TorMail was an encrypted mail platform that allowed users to send and receive emails over the Tor network. The FBI was allowed to hack TorMail users after discovering that both TorMail and the CP sites were hosted on the same server. tormail.png

Documents explicitly clarified that only the 300 target accounts listed in the affidavit were to be hacked.

The ACLU fought to have the documents unsealed in September and the Department of Justice ultimately published them in redacted form. The released documents confirmed the suspicions and theories of many cybersecurity researchers and TorMail users alike. motion.png

“That is, while the warrant authorized hacking with a scalpel, the FBI delivered their malware to TorMail users with a grenade,” Christopher Soghoian, principal technologist at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), told Motherboard in an email.

The suspicion that the FBI operated outside the scope of their warrant existed almost immediately. The “hack” was not discreet. As revealed in the affidavits, the type of “hacking” performed by the FBI was a network investigative technique (NIT). This malware, according to Greg Virgin, former NSA employee turned cyber security consultant, did not “crack” Tor encryption. It circumvented anonymity altogether.

Malware was only to be deployed once one of the “target” users entered their TorMail username and password, the affidavits explained. However, within a week of the arrest of the Freedom Hosting owner, TorMail users started reporting otherwise. Users were met with an error page before being able to access the TorMail log-in page.

Researchers looked at the source code of of the “Down for Maintenance” message that was displayed on every Freedom Hosting website. A hidden iframe tag was discovered that loaded “a clump” of javascript code from a location in Virginia.

magneto.png

Security researchers dissected the code and it wasn’t long before Mozilla made a statement. The code exploited a critical memory management vulnerability in Firefox, the company said. Tor, being based on Firefox, consequently suffered from the same vulnerability. The “Down for Maintenance” error page that presented itself to TorMail users ultimately exposed their identities.

Wired reported that the FBI’s malware looked up the victim’s MAC address and Windows hostname. The NIT then transmitted the identifying data to a server in Virginia. Data was sent via HTTP, outside of Tor, revealing the victim’s IP address.

Joseph Cox, a contributor to Vice’s Motherboard, spoke with a former TorMail user who confirmed the error page “appeared before you even logged in.

The email Christopher Soghoian sent to Motherboard continued:

The warrant that the FBI returned to the court makes no mention of the fact that the FBI ended their operation early because they were discovered by the security community, nor does it acknowledge that the government delivered their malware to innocent TorMail users. This strongly suggests that the FBI kept the court in the dark about the extent to which they botched the TorMail operation.

“What remains unclear is if the court was ever told that the FBI had exceeded the scope of the warrant, or whether the FBI agents who hacked innocent users were ever punished,” he continued.

Motherboard reached out to the FBI for comment and heard back from Christopher Allen, a spokesperson for the FBI. “As a matter of practice the FBI narrowly tailors warrants, and we do not exceed the scope of those warrants,” he said.

CEO and CTO of Popular Bitcoin Exchange Arrested

Bitcoin exchange owners are notoriously known for being in trouble with the law. From the imprisonment of Mark Karpelès, the CEO of bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox to the Cripsty exchange case, many have found themselves facing the law on money related charges. This time, the CEO, CTO and head of IT of a well-known Bitcoin exchange are facing charges of drug possession and improper exhibition of a dangerous firearm.

The aforementioned exchange is Paxful, a peer to peer market in which users are allowed to buy and sell Bitcoins with alternative payment methods like paypal and amazon/ebay gift cards. The exchange is known to be a breeding ground for scam artists that prey on sellers that accept refundable methods and use the exchange as a method to cash out from hacked paypal accounts, bought on deepweb markets.

It all started on Friday when Artur Shaback, head of IT at Paxful was spotted by local area residents being photographed by Ivan Suhharev, CTO of Paxful, with a mask over his face while holding an automatic rifle on the balcony of a Del Rio Apartment penthouse on 1100 Collins Avenue, Miami. The apartment belongs to Mohamed Yousseff, CEO of Paxful. This, apparently, isn’t new to the exchange operators, as a quick look through social media was enough to discover more pictures of them toting Yousseff’s gun.

The Police was called to investigate and surrounded the apartment where they found Artur Shaback, Ivan Suhharev and Mohamed Azab Yousseff. After searching the apartment, Police found a switchblade, an AR-15 with 500 round live ammo along with a box containing cocaine, hashish and drug paraphernalia. Federal agents were also on the scene after several people dialed 911 in panic.

The trio was released the following day after posting bail and they will face another bond hearing shortly. While only Yousseff faces charges of hashish and cocaine possession with the intent to distribute, all 3 of the Paxful employees mentioned will face charges of improper exhibition of a dangerous firearm. Even though police is still investigating the legality of the firearm and ammunition, Mohamed Youssef could face up to 5 years in prison on drug charges.

Paxful is yet to make an official comment regarding the situation, but trading will continue as usual on the exchange, according to website moderators.
