As mysterious as the name sounds, the term is way more mysterious than that. Dark web is at times called the evil brother of the surface internet.
Dark web is a place where everyone is anonymous. There is no tracking people using dark web no matter what. The websites of the dark web cannot be found on the any of the mainstream search engines.
Hardcore criminals, hackers, drug dealers etc. are very common on the dark web. They sell all kind of stuff, drugs, illegal weapons, credit card details and other illicit things.
The only problem is, they are selling the access to your mobile now.
How? Through SS7
Are you familiar with the term SS7? No? SS7 or signalling system no. 7 is a top secret closed internet network used by almost all the cellular phone companies to track your calls, messages and even your location.

It means anyone after paying $150 can buy access to your smartphone.
