The dark web, quite possibly, is becoming a household name after the conviction of Ross Ulbricht of the Silk Road darknet market. Following this, a stream of articles have claimed that the Islamic State is utilising secret websites to plan out the attacks and that this is being talked about more than any other topics. But for most of the part, some of the stories that have been told about the dark web is a myth, as many claims.
In certain interviews with the staff of the reputed darknet markets especially the drug marketplaces information on their paid DEA double agents have been highlighted. It is also discovered that the active Uber accounts were being sold on the dark web against as little as a dollar for each.

Talking about the terrorist forums, very few know that some of them are hiding behind the internet where the regular websites permit the extremist supporters and the most prominent Jihadis to communicate with one another and post brutal propaganda media like videos.

Still, few of the Islamic extremist websites exist on the clear web and are in heavy usages till date.

The dark web is not impenetrable and within the reach of the law enforcement agencies which have been proven by several dark web markets getting busted and several people getting caught every other day.
