The well-known cybercrime forum Darkode, where Lizard Squad and other well-known hacking groups resided, was taken offline following a coordinated international law enforcement shutdown across twenty countries. Darkode itself was seized by the US authorities and now shows a notice from the FBI, which cooperated with Europol and seventeen other international law enforcement agencies in this operation.
Aside from the site seizure, 28 persons were arrested under charges of cybercrime offences within the joint operation in several countries (India, Israel, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, and Romania). As for Romania alone, 16 persons were arrested there. Overall, 70 people were arrested within the operation across twenty countries.
According to the UK’s NCA, a 26-year-old man was arrested and released on bail. The NCA’s National Cyber Crime Unit had coordinated 5 previous arrests within the operation targeting Darkode around the country, including 4 British nationals.
Apparently, the FBI’s Pennsylvania field office organized the entire operation and seized the website. Darkode has long been known as a harbor and a black market for cybercriminals, where they could trade stolen data, financial information and hacking tools used to coordinate attacks on corporations, agencies and governments.
Launched back in 2007, Darkode operated as a market for hacking tools, accepting users on an invitation-only basis. The site was closed from the outside world and running on the so-called “bulletproof” servers able to resist law enforcement action. Darkode attracted interest of the security researchers four years ago, which led to the website’s administrators clamping down on access. They had to set up an Internet relay chat server, later used by the notorious Lizard Squad. If you remember, this hacking collective was responsible for a number of cyberattacks targeting Sony, Microsoft, Taylor Swift and others.
Finally, the reports from Brazil reveal that an investigation into hackers in the country was launched 5 months ago by Federal Police in cooperation with the FBI and resulted in the arrest of several people and seizure of the illegal website’s equipment.

|Well, Back in the 80's we had BBS's and a group of them such as this scattered across the US... Thieves World comes to mind... you call in, the only thing it does when you connected was send an @ system to your screen... if you didnt have a account and typed something wrong, it dropped you immediately... My point being, is sites and groups such as this have always been around... As they grow and idiot members get busted, law enforcement will try to catch you... and after they do, someone else will start a new group and the whole process starts over...|
Each group will have some sort of new trick to outwit those looking for them... and each group will have a method to invite new members... IF none of those members ever get caught, then maybe that group will be around for 25 years....

Here's suggestion for you, Internet is huge black hole, you don't who's watching you and try do to you. This what I do to my PC
1. www.zenmate.com (this Private VPN in browsers) , I working in one huge ISP, even my guy can't tell what I am doing, this only Internet browser base, you need torrent client run in browser). once thing about this program will not slow your PC down.
2. use app like google remove it, this clean all the tracks, before shutdown the computer.
