More than 150 arrested and cash and cryptocurrency worth €26m seized in dark web sting

Several key criminals have been caught in a police sting operation in a dark web crackdown that resulted in the seizure of €26 million ($30.17 million) in cash and cryptocurrency.

More than 150 people were arrested across the UK and Europe.

The high-profile targets were involved in buying or selling illegal goods online in one of the largest stings yet focused on the dark web, Europe’s crime agency Europol said.

Operation Dark HunTor also recovered millions of euros in cash and bitcoin, as well as drugs and guns. The investigation stems from a German-led police sting this year that took down the world’s largest darknet marketplace.

Dark HunTor, “was composed of a series of separate but complementary actions in Australia, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States,” the Hague-based Europol said.

In the United States alone, police arrested 65 people, while 47 were held in Germany, 24 in Britain, and four each in Italy and the Netherlands, among others.

A number of those arrested “were considered high-value targets” by Europol.

Italian police also shut down the DeepSea and Berlusconi marketplaces, which the agency says hosted more than 100,000 illegal products.

German police in January closed down the DarkMarket online marketplace, which allegedly facilitated the sale of drugs, stolen credit-card data and malware.

Europol said the arrest of the alleged operator, caught near the German-Danish border at the time, and the seizure of the criminal infrastructure provided “investigators across the world with a trove of evidence”.

German prosecutors said DarkMarket came to light in the course of a major investigation against the web-hosting service Cyberbunker, located in a former Nato bunker in south-west Germany.

Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre EC3 has since been compiling intelligence packages to identify the key targets.

“The point of operations such as this is to put criminals operating on the dark web on…

Police arrest 150 suspects after closure of dark web’s largest illegal marketplace

A 10-month investigation following the closure of the dark web’s largest illegal marketplace, DarkMarket, has resulted in the arrest of 150 suspected drug vendors and buyers.

DarkMarket was taken offline earlier this year as part of an international operation. The site boasted some 500,000 users and facilitated around 320,000 transactions, reports the EU’s law enforcement agency, Europol, with clientele buying and selling everything from malware and stolen credit card information, to weapons and drugs. When German authorities arrested the site’s alleged operator in January this year, they also seized valuable evidence of transactions which led to this week’s arrest of key players.

According to the US Department of Justice and Europol, Operation Dark HunTor saw law enforcement make numerous arrests in the United States (65), Germany (47), the United Kingdom (24), Italy (4), the Netherlands (4), France, (3), Switzerland (2), and Bulgaria (1). More than $31.6 million in cash and cryptocurrencies were seized during the arrests, as well 45 firearms and roughly 234 kilograms of drugs including cocaine, opioids, amphetamine, MDMA, and fentanyl. According to the DoJ: “A number of investigations are still ongoing.”

As part of the operation, Italian authorities also shut down two other dark web marketplaces — DeepSea and Berlusconi — arresting four alleged administrators and seizing €3.6 million ($4.17 million) in cryptocurrency.

The operation was conducted across the US, Europe, and Australia.

Although the dark web was once considered to be a relatively safe haven for those selling and buying drugs, international operations like Dark HunTor have seen regular arrests of suspects and speedy closure of marketplaces. The list of dark web markets closed just in recent years is extensive, including Dream,…

Hackers-for-hire are biggest cybersecurity threat -EU agency

By Foo Yun Chee

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Hackers-for-hire emerged as the biggest threat to online security in the last 15 months, with the COVID-19 pandemic and home working creating opportunities for cybercriminals, EU cybersecurity agency ENISA said in its annual report on Wednesday.

The study, which covered the period April 2020 to July 2021, seeks to help governments and companies understand cybersecurity threats and develop techniques to tackle the problem.

High profile ransomware attacks in recent months include that against the Colonial Pipeline that caused fuel disruptions in the eastern United States in May, and a separate case involving Brazilian company JBS SA, the world’s largest meatpacker.

“The COVID-19 crisis has created possibilities for adversaries who used the pandemic as a dominant lure in campaigns for email attacks for instance. Monetisation appears to be the main driver of such activities,” the report said.

The health sector was a significant target especially in the May-July period this year as hackers searched for vaccine information, the study said.

Public administration and government and digital service providers also reported a large number of incidents. Hackers preferred to be paid off in cryptocurrency.

Other growing cyber threats cited in the report include cryptojacking where a criminal uses a victim’s computing power to generate cryptocurrency and which reached a record high in the first quarter of this year, and misinformation and disinformation.

Shares of Robinhood fell about 10% in premarket trading after the trading platform missed revenue expectations as its cryptocurrency revenue fell from the second quarter’s record high.

Shares were around $36.10 following the release of the results, below the $38 they were priced at in the company’s July IPO.

Robinhood said its crypto revenues fell to just $51 million in the third quarter, down from a record $233 million in the second quarter, according to Coindesk.

Lower crypto trading activity led to significantly fewer new funded accounts and lower revenue, according to the company.

Total revenue for the quarter was $365 million, missing the street estimates of $437.1 million, according to FactSet. The company reported an adjusted net loss of $2.06 per share, versus analyst expectations of a loss of $0.67.

In other cryptocurrency-related news, profits at payments giant Visa Inc. jumped in its most-recent quarter, driven by consumers and businesses getting back to spending on their credit and debit cards after the pandemic, reported the Associated Press.

In a call with investors, Al Kelly, Visa’s CEO and chairman, said the growth of cryptocurrencies will also be good for Visa’s profits because cryptocurrency investors will need to move money from a traditional bank account to a third-party service to buy Bitcoin and other coins. While Visa’s bread and butter will always be credit and debit cards, Kelly said, he sees its network as being a “single connection point” between cryptocurrencies and traditional sources of money.

Bitcoin holding period before the end?You have to consider this with your tax return : City Telegraph

Take Bitcoin profits tax-free? That works, says Taxfix tax expert Juliane Kutzke. But many a crypto tax privilege could soon be a thing of the past.

We talked to Juliane about the upcoming deadline for the tax return, exemption limits, taxes on lending and no longer privileges in the crypto sector.

City Telegraph Editorial Team: When is the deadline for the tax return?

Juliane Kutzke, DE Tax Lead at Taxfix : This year it’s October 31st. It would normally be July 31st. However, it was extended due to Corona. In addition, if a deadline falls on a weekend, as is the case now in this case, i.e. Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, then the deadline is postponed to the next working day. Therefore this year the deadline is Monday, November 1st. This in turn is a public holiday in some federal states, for example in Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia. This is why taxpayers who are resident in these federal states can still submit their tax return on time until November 2nd.

BTC-ECHO: Where should I enter Bitcoin profits in the tax return? Is there a distinction between Bitcoin and other crypto values?

Juliane Kutzke : It doesn’t make any difference. Everything is more or less the same with cryptocurrency. According to tax law, cryptocurrencies are all “other economic goods”. The sale of these “other assets” represents a so-called “private sale transaction”. If these are taxable, then they are “other income” and therefore they are included in Annex SO (other income). In this they are entered under the “private sales transactions”.

City Telegraph Editorial Team : That sounds complicated.

Juliane Kutzke : That’s why the Taxfix has solved it differently: We ask the questions about profits in the “Income” category, where one would intuitively expect such items and then automatically enter them for our users in the correct form. In the Taxfix app there are questions like: When did you buy the coins? When is it sold? How much paid How…

Tesla powers S&P 500 to fresh record high

The Dow and S&P 500 notched record closing highs amid ongoing earnings optimism and a mega order for electric car maker Tesla.The Dow gained 64 points. The S&P 500 rose 21 points. The Nasdaq jumped 136 points.For the first time in Tesla’s history, the company hit a market cap of more than $1 trillion on the stock market. That put it into an elite club of companies Google parent Alphabet, Microsoft , Apple and Amazon – to do so. Monday’s stock surge for Tesla came after rental car company Hertz announced that it would buy 100,000 electric vehicles from Elon Musk.Hilary Kramer of Kramer Capital Research sees Tesla’s surge stock as market warning signal. “Today the market capitalization of Tesla rose $100 billion on what will be $500 million of an increase in gross profit, not just over a year, but over an extended period of time. It’s completely out of whack. It’s like valuations have lost their mind. And there’s all this speculation. It’s almost like Tesla is the equivalent to bitcoin. It just tells us it’s one more point to the fact that we are in a speculative bubble.” Shares of Tesla closed above the $1,000 mark for the first time in history – closing up by 12.6 percent. PayPal said it is not interested in acquiring Pinterest at this time, following speculation last week that a $45 billion deal was in the works. Shares of PayPal jumped nearly 3 percent. That news was a blow to Pinterest, which is grappling with a slowdown in user growth. Shares of Pinterest slumped nearly 13 percent.After the close – big earnings news from Facebook following weeks of damaging news coverage and company leaks. The leading social network beat profit forecasts. Sales came in below expectations. Monthly active users fell shy of analysts’ predictions. Facebook guided sales estimates lower – citing privacy changes to Apple’s operating system.
