New Threat Intelligence Research Says That Illegal Dark Web Pharmaceutical Sales Drop 80%, Significantly Decline

Today, Cybersixgill published new threat intelligence research finding that authorities have shut down dedicated underground pharmaceutical drug markets in big numbers over the last three years, but many are still active.

The number of posts for prescription drugs on underground forums dropped by 79% from 2020 to 2021 and did not go back up in 2022. Cybersixgill’s researchers attribute the initial decline to the Covid-19 pandemic and major law enforcement operations, including a Europol dark web drug bust resulting in arrests.
