How did the SilkRoad founder get caught and site shut down, if everything was 100% anonymous and encrypted?

Also general darknet thread
>>
>>693040997
CIA paid off Mozilla to install a trojan in their tor plugin

Anyone accessing Silk Road through Firefox was sending unencrypted data back to the CIA

I guess everything wasn't anonymous and encrypted...

>>693040997
I'd take a moment to learn about security and exploits. There's no such thing as 100% anonymous, I might be able to just track you down to a tor relay, but if I can exploit your browser you're done for either way.

>>
>>693041187
this is not really true. FBI designed a javascript exploit that would reveal a user's true IP. The default TOR bundle left javascript enabled which allowed the vulnerability to be exploited.

If you want a good movie about it, watch Deep Web, I think it's on Netflix. There's definitely some shady shit going on with the FBI. A couple of agents took bitcoins worth a lot of money in the raid and were convicted.

This. If TOR were anonymous from the government - it would be illegal to use.

>>693040997
It's only 100% anonymous if you take additional precautions.

For eg, the BBC did on a story on a pedo who got caught. He had an usual greeting "hiyas". So the Feds searched the surface web and found a facebook account that used that greeting.

The pedo in on Tor had a mole on his hand and the guy on FB had the same, so they arrested him, took over his site and caught dozens of pedos.

All Tor sites that get shut down are through human error.
>>
>>693042255

If I recall it was rather simple. The owner of silkroad was just a dumbass. Used his real identity on the website, his email got released and so on. From there the feds easily tracked down the server the site was registered to, shut it down and arrested the owner. No hacking necessary. The later websites were hacked through javascript exploits I believe.
>>
>>693042383
Found of SilkRoad 1 got arrested for procuring murder (paid 800k total to 6 different people to kill someone and they ran off with his money lmao) and hacking and also drug trafficking. Life in prison in Manhattan detention center nyc.


SilkRoad 2 was created by his friend, also got caught. Life in prison.

Close. They found his email address tied to an old forum post on Austrian economics and correlated that email address to his ip. That email address also was in 1 post/account on TOR. And then they setup a sting and surveilled and arrested him. Pretty dumb.

>watch Deep Web

Just watched it last night actually: Here: http://movieshub.tv/deep-web/

I'd say it tells it pretty straight. They wanted to convict him, so they didn't' allow a lot of evidence to be used on his behalf. Typical government. But we allow it, so fuck us. Maybe in a few more years a small group of us will get organized and start to take back what's ours. Till then, fuck us.
>>
>>693042924
But how did they know that email was tied to something bad?

Also how did they know it was used on TOR if it's an anonymous connection?

These maybe stupid questions but I'm sorta lost here.

>>693043135
you see the email pubicly in his post on Tor
>>
>>693042355
that's stale
>>
>>693043135
They found that email on an account on Silk Road after they raided their servers. Email is not anonymous in any way so it's very easy to correlate IPs with email addresses.

Once they found that email address on a silk road server, they searched the internet for more and got that IP information through National Security Letters with gag orders so the server owners couldn't notify Ross.

Pretty routine, unfortunately. I think the javascript vulnerability that deanonymized a whole bunch of TOR users is still secret and the FBI is fighting not to have it released.
>>
>>693043262
Or you could just google the address and see it's a typical HD movie site. What are you worried about?

>>
>>693043336
his email was publicly viewable on ST because he made a post using it.

The Feds decided to search for it on the clear net in case he was stupid enough to screw up and use it there. He was.

Getting your IP on the clear net is as easy as showing a warrant. He was then arrested.
>>
>>693043662
Ha! Ok, that makes a little more sense then.
>>
Ross's case is a perfect illustration of just how out of control the modern FBI is. Hoover set them loose to be his own secret police and no president since has had the balls to stand up to them. They routinely hide/destroy evidence and rarely play within the bounds of the law. In Ross's case they deanonymized thousands of TOR users just to find him, a serious breach of ethics.
>>
>>693043724
or a National Security Letter
>>
>>693043492
Thanks for answering. Made things a bit clear. I guess Dark Net will make it clearer. How is this so called Javascript vulnerability used? Like does it come with all tor installs or do you have to download something to get it?
>>
>>693043789
This. And also if you're going to fuck around, you better have at least several layers of protection and traps set up so you know when shit has been breached and they have started to look for you. He was lazy and believed no one would ever find him. Then by the time he acted to cover his ass it was too late.
>>
He was sloppy, they matched his style of writing with other bits of information such as activity time for patterns, usernames that had same or similar names etc.

People forget what they do online is usually there forever. 1 mistake can be found many years down the line.
>>
>>693043881
you only have to have javascript enabled in your browser for it to work. If I recall, once the FBI capture a TOR exit node and were able to embed this javascript vulnerability in a 1x1 pixel image on the page so you would never see it.

>A national security letter (NSL) is an administrative subpoena issued by the United States federal government to gather information for national security purposes. NSLs do not require prior approval from a judge.

JavaScript itself is a common programming language used for front end web application development. Although, it can be used for certain types of hacks such as XSS, the only way it can get an IP address is accessing a Java applet that a user has installed. Note, JavaScript and Java are different

Since this seems like the right audience. If you're interested in Ross's case, you also might be interested in the story of the author of the encryption software TrueCrypt.

Great 7 piece series here: https://mastermind.atavist.com/

>>
>>693044053
For example route your traffic though a 'fake' laptop that you pay someone to use in public places. When the Fed arrest the fall guy they get nothing. But you get the advantage of the intel and traffic coming from public places. It looks like you hacked the laptop and your buddy goes free. It's a win - win but costs money and time of course. Don't be lazy and stupid or you go to jail.

Bump for dpr
>>
>>693044188
Unfortunately yes. After 911 our judicial system went a little haywire and allowed stuff like this. Important fact: It's technically illegal to even acknowledge that you have been served one.

That's why when google discloses the number they have received they have to include a range and it includes zero. Something like 0 to 1100.

Scary..
>>
>>693044188
No, but they can make up evidence as to HOW they got you in the first place. So they find things that fit the narrative and it sticks.

This is the issue we are facing today. They can lock up anyone they want, whenever they want and we can't even use the laws which are there to protect us.

Google owns so much of the Internet's infrastructure that it's almost impossible to get away from it. In addition, the vast majority of the internet infrastructure is inside the US or at least the traffic goes through the US so it's very easy to find at least one company to get data from.

Kek really? What a dumbass. Missed his opportunity to run away.
>>
>>693045429
But your traffic from your home to them is the issue, no?
>>
>>693045329
VPN is not a silver bullet. The NSA has lists of VPN endpoints that they share with other agencies like FBI/CIA, so if they wanted to find you they could. But here's the thing, you have to make yourself stand out from the crowd to be targeted by the FBI/NSA/CIA so anything you can do to blend in is best.

That's why if you download the TOR browser, it sets the window to a generic resolution like 1024x768 because it's so common and warns you if you try to resize the window. User-agent plays a big role too.
>>
They caught him using old fashioned police work

If you want to go on tor and be anon to trade some photos then run away that's easy

If you want to run servers and a business that makes tens of millions of dollars per year net profit that is up 24/7 and deals with user support and keeping the lights on it's very easy to fuck up, especially if they are actively looking for the person profiting from that business

Think about it, he was trying to be the CEO of a super secret ebay and keep every single thing anon?

he should have moved to a country where that was not a crime and did not extradite, he simply could not stay anon forever
>>
>>693041187

This isn't what brought down silk road.

The architect of it (Dread Pirate Roberts) had used some type of similarly named on-line handle or posted on topic with similar language to his recent activity on some long forgotten message board. The feds now had an old IP address and they went from there to connect the dots.

Had he kept his mouth shut he'd very likely still be a ghost.

>>
>>693046514
But then that someplace like North Korea would find a way to profit from his profit. Such as blackmailing him to paying 80% of anything he makes in order to not arrest him.

That fucker had 30 million dollars so it's not like 80% would hurt anyway.
>>
>>693046333
There was no proof from the State. They held him on no bond because of it, then dropped the charges (he remains "unchanged"). So it wasn't him or they lacked any proof it was. But the trial wasn't about that. It was about showing they were in control still and not us. The whole Silk Road was a fuck you to the system, not about selling drugs. It was about how We The People could do what we want without Big Brother being able to stop us or control any aspect of it/us.

They don't like that.

Drug dealers, especially big time drug dealers like him (and small dealers) retire quick like after 3 years. The more you're in the game, the higher chance you'll get caught. Take your profits and cut it short. You made what the average citizen does in a lifetime so don't be greedy.

That was spoken about in the movie actually. And was his only defense in the case. SO many Admins used the DPR account that it's hard to tell who was who most times. And it's unlikely he was the owner of the site.

Then you missed the whole point of the site. They could have easily sold things that were fucked up and they didn't. Drugs, yes. But not hits or children for example. And some even have credited the site to less crime stats. That's how much it made a difference and kept people safe. That's what the site was about. Not making money.

those other 8 people would not have had access to the bitcoins

only he had access to that because he was the owner

>>693047438

>>
>>693048577
I don't disagree with you but he didn't make any money off of murdering anyone nor did he actually kill anyone.
>>
>>693048577
Lol murder had nothing to do with SilkRoad. It was him who paid 6 people to kill someone and they fucked him over.
>>
>>693048738

he just hired someone to kill someone and didn't pay taxes on thirty million dollars

you can't do either of those two things
>>
>>693048725
How much do you think the Silk Road brought in? $30 million? $50 million? Ross's share was $30 but I guarantee it brought in a lot more money than that.

>getting rich off drugs and murder

Did I miss something? I said murder for hire WAS NOT allowed on the site. And if you think drugs are bad then you must still be in middle skool or something like that. Go do some reading and expand you mind a little.

some companies use what they call "canaries" its a legal statement claiming they have never had any NSL requests or requests for records by the government.

its illegal for them to say they've been served. but its legal for them to confirm they've -not- been served. if that changes, the "canary" disappears.

Yeah, but I'd believe it would be in that area or more. That makes more sense than 30 mil for the amount of time the site was running and the amount of good they claim was being delivered.

He would use the same screen name all the time and they found old posts he made on a forum with that same name trying to get people to go to silk road and somehow traced him from that (posting with no proxies or he wrote his name somewhere or used an e-mail that could be traced to him to sign up). This is actually what happened.
>>
>>693049995
>michael brown was an asshole
he was much more than an asshole, you retard
he assaulted a store owner, stole a pack of cigars (all of this was dismissed as a "cultural" thing, too), and not only rushed towards the officer that killed him, but also reached for his gun (all of this is supported by the autopsy)

At least someone points you fags down a path. Fuck me what u have read sounds more like what ypur American media says. You fags are the problem as you believe mainstream media. Perfect US government bitches..

DPR was arrested in a library. His downfall was an undercover agent looking to make big buys. Able to bust sellers and sieze their pcs and use their logins to get admin rights and so forth leading to an arrest. I highly doubt the guy they arrested is who the US government says he is. His trial was a farce.
Your government illegally found the servers in Iceland and cloned them allowing them to control the information.

I say get behind your man. Its your country that is so fucked up in the darkness of the world. I wouldn't suprise me if they are the puppet behind ISIS and Al Quaeda..
>>
>>693050222
Probably. EVERYONE was using the site and knew about it. It had over 1 million customers on it. You could buy kilos of anything. I'm not good with math, but a kilo of pot is a lot no less coke. So when I do the math, yeah it could have been as much as a billion. We'll never know unless the Feds release the records from the Servers. And you think they are going to do that when it means major egg on their face and openly admitting that huge amounts of drugs get sent through the mail daily?

The guy was selling drugs and contract murders, the passwords to the money were on his computer. They either had the right guy or the guy who was holding the owner's 30million dollars

either way he knew what he was doing and the risks

he was helping to sell drugs and getting rich doing it, not saving starving children

he was a faggot who cares
>>
>>693050128
>a guy

a guy that was following him? for blocks? with a loaded gun? george zimmerman is a pussy ass faggot, and a liar. thwy let sean hannity speak on his behalf at his trial, he was never even called to the stand. trayvon was just an unarmed kid, man. that's real fucked up.

>>693050412
>all of this was dismissed as a "cultural" thing

i didn't hear that anywhere. i heard it dismissed because the responding officer hadn't even heard of the robbery, and we don't execute people for stealing anyway, but anyone who dismissed strong-arm robbery as "a cultural thing" is probably retarded, and has just outed themselves as a closet racist. where'd you hear that? twitter? tumblr? don't take the nation's pulse by assholes on the internet.
>>
>>693051251

Then you never read any of the DPR posts or why the site was up and running. I know they used big words, but you should go read a few. It speaks volumes to his humanity and visions for the site and its users.

that would help you bust individual buyers or sellers

which nobody actually cared to do

how would you catch the sellers? The sellers don't give you their personal info. the buyers probably weren't worth it
>>
>>693051692
no. there's a lot of liberal bullshit. but if you really think trayvon deserved to die, which a lot of people do, you're fucked up and your worldview is flawed. /b/ isn't zeitgeist or stormfront, there's people of all kinds who come to say offensive shit. but if you think treyvon wasn't the victim of a nutjob with a gun and a racist criminal justice system, you've got something wrong with you. maybe get off /b/ and go see a therapist for a while.
>>
>>693052167
>how would you catch the sellers? The sellers don't give you their personal info. the buyers probably weren't worth it

buy like 50 things from one seller then carefully open the boxes/track them back to where they were shipped, find patterns in where they came from for instance they might have often used one mailbox at noon on most tuesdays... wait for them there, look for fingerprints in the box shit like that, bust the guy dropping off the box and make him take you to his boss

surprised they never did that to a bunch of people then make noise about it to scare everyone else but it never happened
>>
>>693052167
This is exactly it. The buyer is buying $100 with of coke for the weekend. The seller has 10 kilos. They want the 10 kilos for the news and PR. Not some kid with whore bait that costs hundreds of man hours of time to find.

>>693052362

Thats what they did, fuckwit. But the community on silkroad was very tight and almost like family. People were normally smart and made sure they left out any personal info (like any email they even used only once, 7 years ago). It ended up being an old email and a trusted user of silkroad whom ratted when the feds found out who he was by telling personal info for a shipment of large amount of drugs. That used fucked everybody up.
>>
>>693051251
Ok...

Get your facts amerifag. They put those charges on him and dropped them so he was trialled by media before even getting into a courtroom.

2 of the agents working on his case were charged and booted from the CIA. Their evidence was fine to use in court...

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ross_Ulbricht

There were many Dead Pirate Roberts. Ross was just one of them. His main ideology was that government's should not control EVERYTHING.

Look at how many people die because of the so called war on drugs. Decriminalise drugs. Clean up your streets.. nah that wont happen to many Amerifags get rich whilst theres crime. Fucking idiotic post. Educate yourself

They probably tried. And if you were smart you were safe.

Not that easy

if you have to mail out that many packages you are going to start repeating stuff like times and mailboxes you drop to

they are at least going to track you down to your town if you are big and then can use old fashioned police work from there

I am just telling you how they would do it, the idea that every seller someone was physically mailing packages with hard drugs in them and could not be tracked it the feds gave a shit is ridiculous

just like they have the buyer's home addy they have where the package originated, with enough packages purchased they could get real real close to you...
