On May 31, there were reports of hackers stealing and leaking Daniel's Hosting (DH) database, the largest provider of free web hosting on darknet, and home to many crypto forums and stores.

Hackers – under the pseudonym “KingNull” – also claim to be part of an unknown group and are reported to have received information after the second hack inflicted by DH on March 10, resulting in the removal of 7,600 dark places.

The truth forced the host provider to shut down their service and encouraged users to transfer their sites to new websites on a dark network.

An information leak can help track the identity of people who work on illegal dark web sites.
The data leak allegedly includes 3,671 email addresses, 7,205 passwords, and 8,850 private keys for domains associated with dark websites.

Under the Beach threat analysis company, this ZDNet confirmed and commented the following:

“This information can greatly help law enforcement agencies track down individuals who engage in or engage in illegal activities on these sites.”

DH warned affected users to immediately change the password that the hacker leaked, as it could be used to crack new accounts created by website owners with other service providers.

Although DH is home to illegal cybercrime-related websites, it also has many dissident and political site owners that can be identified by the government, according to their host provider.

Hacker alleged relationship with Anonymous
The report said the suspected hacker did not steal IP addresses. At the moment, Daniel Vinsen, president of DH, said there is no specific date to restart the service.

That the hacker is associated with Anonymous will not come as a surprise. The group released a child pornography film, Operation Darknet, Against Freedom of Hosting in 2013, which was Thor's largest web host at the time.

Recent data provided by Crystal Blockchain Analytics showed that the total value of the US dollar (BTC) in bitcoins transferred to the Dark Web increased by 65% ​​in the first quarter of 2020, drawing the attention of the authorities to illegal transactions through darknet.
