“At a press conference today, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the takedown of one of the Dark Web’s largest illegal drug vendors: AlphaBay. According to a staff member, AlphaBay claimed to service more than 40,000 illegal vendors and 200,000 customers.
The Dark Web is a collection of hidden websites that masks users identities and locations. It is the source of many black market activities, including the traffic of opioid drugs.
According to the Justice Department, AlphaBay contained more than 250,000 listings for illegal drugs and toxic chemicals at the time of the takedown. The same report shows that 122 vendors advertised fentanyl and 238 advertised heroin.”
