Darknet gets its first search engine
An anonymous developer has launched a new search engine, called Grams Darknet Market Search, to help users browse the darknet, according to a Wired report.
Patterned after Google — even including an “I Feel Lucky” button — Grams lets users search for illicit sites that at one time could only be found if the user knew specific URLs. The search engine's creator, who goes by the pseudonym “gramsadmin,” told Wired that he was trying to make it easier for users to find what they need on the darknet. Users can only access Grams, which is currently in beta, through the anonymous Tor network. So far, it delivers results from eight sites, including Silk Road 2.0, BlackBank, Pandora and NiceGuy.
In a recent Reddit post gramsadmin said he patched up some security holes including heartbleed” and will soon let vendors buy keywords, much like GoogleAds.
