A weekly program about the Dark Web based on the Beyond Search blog and the research gathered for the "Dark Web Notebook" by Stephen E Arnold

Louisville, KY, USA – WEBWIRE

Stephen E Arnold’s new video series Dark Cyber is now available on YouTube. The new program provides news and original reports about the Dark Web and less well known Internet services. The Dark Cyber series is free. Information about Arnold’s best selling “Dark Web Notebook” appears in each video.

Stephen E Arnold said:

“Dark Cyber videos will make it easier for busy people to keep pace with some of the more important developments in the Dark Web and related online activities. Although there are hundreds of videos about the Dark Web, none provides a weekly review of both technical and business news about online services which can be a conduit for illegal or questionable activities.”

The first video in the series includes a run down of funding for four high profile cyber centric vendors. The program pinpoints specific lawful intercept vendors and includes a link to a report from the Electronic Freedom Foundation which presents information that was, until recently, a closely guarded secret. Plus, the program comments about Tor vulnerabilities and references methods for stripping away some Dark Web users’ anonymity. The first program in the series also predicts that pressure for backdoors to encrypted data will increase sharply in the near future. The first program in the Dark Cyber series is available now at

The second program in the series tackles the use of chat and encrypted messaging services as a way for Dark Web vendors to try and evade law enforcement and intelligence professionals’ investigations. Arnold explains the basics behind Terbium Labs’ fingerprinting of content in order to spot unauthorized copies of that information on Dark Web sites. A new development promises to make it easier for wrong doers to bedevil the innocent is CaaS or Crime as a Service. The ArnoldIT research team spotted a blog post on the Google Blogger platform which includes a list of Tor ONION Web sites covering a range of potentially illegal activities. The list is available to anyone, including children, with access to a regular Web browser. The final story in the second program in the Dark Cyber series airs on November 28, 2017. Details of the location of the video will appear in Arnold’s widely read Beyond Search blog at
