Welcome to the January 2022 issue of your Computing Security Newsletter.

The administrators of the largest illegal marketplace on the darknet for stolen credit cards are retiring after making an estimated $358m (£260m). Is it because the police are closing in on the ruthless criminals behind the racket? No – the anonymous owners of UniCC are stepping down more like retiring office workers: “We are not young and our health do (sic) not allow to work like this any longer,” they reveal.

The darknet is a part of the internet only accessible through special browsing software. Cryptocurrency experts at analysts Elliptic traced hundreds of millions of dollars in crypto-payments made to UniCC.

“One of the biggest headaches for the police remains the use of dark web marketplaces,” says Jake Moore, global cyber security advisor at ESET, pictured. “Their inherent anonymity attracts all varieties of criminal, leaving law enforcement with few crumbs of evidence to investigate those behind them. Once these marketplaces shut for any given reason, those behind it remain untraceable, leaving the fact it has ceased trading as the only positive news.”
