50% Of All Sites On The Dark Web Are Used For Criminal Activities

Attacks on networks may be inevitable, but proactive monitoring of stolen and compromised data allows you to respond to a threat immediately to prevent a major breach.

Digital credentials, such as usernames and passwords, connect you and your employees to critical business applications, as well as online services. Unfortunately, criminals know this — making digital credentials among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web. That’s why Document Solutions offers Dark Web monitoring services for all business types throughout New York and New Jersey.

How does this happen?

When your employees use their work email on third party websites, like the types listed below, it makes your business vulnerable to a breach. With our Dark Web Monitoring, we can detect if your company is at risk due to exposed credentials on those websites.

  • HR & Payroll
  • Email Services
  • CRM
  • Travel Sites
  • Banking
  • Social Media

Monitor 24/7/365

  • Hidden Chat Rooms
  • Private Websites
  • Peer-to-peer Networks
  • IRC (internet relay chat) Channels
  • Social Media Platforms
  • Black Market Sites
  • 640,000+ Botnets


The Dark Web is made up of digital communities that sit on top of the Internet, and while there are legitimate purposes to the Dark Web, it is estimated that over 50% of all sites on the Dark Web are used for criminal activities, including the disclosure and sale of digital credentials. Far too often, companies that have had their credentials compromised and sold on the Dark Web don’t know it until they have been informed by law enforcement — but by then, it’s too late.

How Document Solutions Protects You

  • Connects to multiple Dark Web services including Tor, I2P, and Freenet, to search for compromised credentials, without requiring you to connect to these high-risk services directly.
  • Provides intelligent awareness of compromised credentials before breaches occur.


Why It’s Important?

  • Compromised credentials are used to conduct further criminal activity.
  • Employees often use the same password for multiple services, such as network login, social media, and SaaS
    business applications, exponentially increasing the potential damage from a single compromised credential.
  • Limited visibility when credentials are stolen; over 75% of compromised credentials are reported to the victim’s organization by a third party, such as law enforcement.

Let's Dive Deeper...

What Is The Dark Web?

The Dark Web is a hidden universe contained within the “Deep Web”- a sublayer of the Internet that is hidden from conventional search engines. Search engines like Google, BING and Yahoo only search .04% of the indexed or “surface” Internet. The other 99.96% of the Web consists of databases, private academic and government networks, and the Dark Web. The Dark Web is estimated at 550 times larger than the surface Web and growing. Because you can operate anonymously, the Dark Web holds a wealth of stolen data and illegal activity.

Our service is designed to help both public and private sector organizations detect and mitigate cyber threats that leverage stolen email addresses and passwords. Dark Web Defender leverages a combination of human and artificial intelligence that scours botnets, criminal chat rooms, blogs, Websites and bulletin boards, Peer to Peer networks, forums, private networks, and other black-market sites 24/7, 365 days a year to identify stolen credentials and other personally identifiable information (PII).

Dark Web Defender focuses on cyber threats that are specific to our clients’ environments. We monitor the Dark Web and the criminal hacker underground for exposure of our clients’ credentials to malicious individuals.

We accomplish this by looking specifically for our clients’ top level email domains. When a credential is identified, we harvest it. While we harvest data from typical hacker sites like Pastebin, a lot of our data originates from sites that require credibility or a membership within the hacker community to enter. To that end, we monitor over 500 distinct Internet relay chatroom (IRC) channels, 600,000 private Websites, 600 twitter feeds, and execute 10,000 refined queries daily.

While we can’t say definitively that the data we’ve discovered has already been used to exploit your organization, the fact that we are able to identify this data should be very concerning. Organizations should consult their internal or external IT and/or security teams to determine if they have suffered a cyber incident or data breach.

  • Dark Web Chatroom: compromised data discovered in a hidden IRC;
  • Hacking Site: compromised data exposed on a hacked Website or data dump site;
  • Hidden Theft Forum: compromised data published within a hacking forum or community;
  • P2P File Leak: compromised data leaked from a Peer-to-Peer file sharing program or network;
  • Social Media Post: compromised data posted on a social media platform;
  • C2 Server/Malware: compromised data harvested through botnets or on a command and control (C2) server.

While employees may have moved on from your organization, their company issued credentials can still be active and valid within the 3rd party systems they used while employed. In many cases, the 3rd party systems or databases that have been compromised have been in existence for 10+ years holding millions of “zombie” accounts that can be used to exploit an organization. Discovery of credentials from legacy employees should be a good reminder to confirm you’ve shut down any active internal and 3rd party accounts that could be used for exploit.

Identified Method Use to Capture/Steal Data: How Was that Data Stolen or Compromised?”

  • Tested: the compromised data was tested to determine if it is live/active;
  • Sample: the compromised data was posted to prove its validity;
  • Keylogged or Phished: the compromised data was entered into a fictitious website or extracted through software designed to steal PII;
  • 3rd Party Breach: the compromised data was exposed as part of a company’s internal data breach or on a 3rd party Website;
  • Accidental Exposure: the compromised data was accidentally shared on a Web, social media, or Peer-to-Peer site;
  • Malicious / Doxed: the compromised data was intentionally broadcast to expose PII.

Password Criteria is designed to allow you or your clients to identify what their on-network password criteria is in order to put a higher alert status on credential exposures that may meet these criteria. It allows you to enter minimum lengths, number of letters, numbers, special characters and capital letters.


What Does This Mean?

This means the password was published as “hashed” (still encrypted). Hundreds of encryption dictionaries are readily available on the Web, and it’s not uncommon for these passwords to be “cracked” or decrypted and available on multiple 3rd party websites.

Fake email accounts are routinely created by employees as a “throw away” when wanting to gain access to a system or piece of data. However, fake email accounts are frequently created to facilitate well-crafted social engineering and/or phishing attacks. Often, the identification of fake email accounts indicates that an organization has been targeted by individuals or groups in the past.

Employees often recycle passwords throughout their work and personal networks. If your internal requirement is to have a capital letter and special character, it’s common practice for employees to use a password they are familiar with, and add a capital letter and exclamation mark. (Example: Exposed Password: cowboys, Variation: Cowboys!, Cowboys1, Cowboys!1, and so on.) Knowing this, hackers will run scripts using metasploit frameworks (hacking and pentesting tools) to “brute force” their way into an unsuspecting system.

In most cases, someone is testing a password against a series of users to gain access.

The Standard User does NOT have access to view passwords.

We allow for up to 5 personal email addresses per organization to be tracked, in addition to all emails on the company domain.

You do not need special permission to access the deep or Dark Web. However, accessing the deep or Dark Web requires the use of a “TOR” browser and should only be done using a VPN/10042017 encrypted tunnel. In general, we advise against attempting to access the Dark Web.
