Outsmart Malicious Hackers


Yes it’s been exactly one year since Darknet was relaunched in it’s new form supported by WordPress and a variety of posts about tools, tutorials and the latest news from the information security and specifically ethical hacking areas.

The first post of the new site:

Welcome to Darknet – The REBIRTH

It’s been an interesting year with 2 posts being published on the front page of Slashdot and 6-7 reaching the front page of Digg.

Those posts of note would be:

Basically the top few you can find at the Darknet Popular page.

You can have a look through the Darknet Archives for some other stuff to read if you are interested.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal readers, RSS subscribers, e-mail subscribers and random browsers for taking some time to look at this site, read and comment on our articles.

We would of course love more comments!

And if there’s any particular topics you’d like us to cover do let us know and we’ll work on something.

Do help promote Darknet by mentioning it to your friends, or even better if you have a blog or website, do drop us a link and a mention in one of your posts!
