Tor .onions: The Good, The Rotten and The Misconfigured

Nowadays more and more news about the obscure Darknet invade our news feeds. But how deep the Deep Web is actually? What can you find on its ‘hidden services’? Are they hidden enough to kickstart your *ehem* ‘legitimate’ business *cough*SilkRoad*cough* and hide your activities from the prying eyes? Are they hidden enough to protect you from your oppressive government when whistleblowing about the real situation of your environment?

How can you make use of Tor in your day to day life? And what dangers do you expose yourself to when browsing it? What kind of people are there? What are they doing in such a shady place? What are they trying to do to you? And the most important question of all, do they fry the onions or eat them raw?

Let us hold hands together with a Chrome Headless based .onion crawler and scuba dive into the magical wonderland of the Darknet. We will find answers to all questions you have and don’t have.
