A thriving underground website where users could buy illegal drugs and guns for home delivery has been shut down by a police sting operation just nine days after it was launched.
Utopia, a successor to the infamous Silk Road, offered a way for people to buy illicit items such as forged currency and hacking services for bitcoin, relatively anonymously, using the Tor browser. Within hours of launch it had a burgeoning user base thanks to recently closed competitors.
Nine days? That's really poor OpSec or someone sold them out.
