Malwarebytes Labs Explain The “Dark Web” AKA: “Deep Web”

I encourage you visit the source link below to learn about the “Dark Web” (aka: Deep Web). Did you know that only 5% of the Web is easily accessible to the general public and that many other sites can only be visited if you have a direct URL. I often referred to the “Dark Web” here on the blog as the underbelly of the internet…

Before you go to read the article (which is very interesting), you need to learn some terminology:

  • Surface Web is what we would call the regular World Wide Web that is indexed and where websites are easy to find.
  • The Deep Web is the unindexed part of the Web. Actually, anything that a search engine can’t find.
  • The Dark Web is intentionally hidden, anonymous, and widely known for illicit activities.

  2. Hello, good post.

    I often write about the dark web and the activities that go on there.
    It is a good idea to let people at least have an awareness as to the activities that go on in its marketplaces as it reminds all of us of how susceptible we are to information breaches and identity theft.

    Regards,

    Ben.
