Operator arrested

German prosecutors have taken down what they believe was the biggest illegal marketplace on the darknet and arrested its suspected operator.

Dubbed DarkMarket, the site was shut down on Monday, prosecutors in the southwestern city of Koblenz said.

Drugs, forged money, stolen or forged credit cards, anonymous mobile phone SIM cards and malware were among the things offered for sale there, they added. German investigators were assisted in their months long probe by US authorities and by Australian, British, Danish, Swiss, Ukrainian and Moldovan police.
