Links to underground forums?

I don't know if this against V7N's rules, if it is then I apologise.

I was just wondering if anyone knows of any underground websites and forums? The kind that aren't listed on Google etc?

Firstly, you are right, v7n wouldn't really be advocating underground websites, though that aside, that is a rather generic question as wouldn't that depend on what exactly one is looking for?

Yeah, I don't know many places that like them.
I was looking more on the technology/software side of things

If you are looking for technology & apps download type of sites, they do exist and I am pretty sure that most people (with a little research) will find them.

That said, I must stress a word of caution here - Though all these sites allow people to download the programs listed, remember that there is no such thing as a free lunch and what they do is place a little coding within the compressed software you are downloading that either stalks your pc for information or places some other sort of virus on it.

Granted, sometimes one may be lucky and get away with it but if your system gets one of these viruses (which is highly likely), at best it will make your life a nightmare as you try to remove it and at worst, it will pass on sensitive information or even completely crash your system so that a complete rebuild is required.

Remember that these sites also log your IP address.

I can't stop people from doing it but I will say to be very careful as these sites usually have more to gain than we do, even though we may be downloading a program.

Just my 2 cents..

Thanks a lot for your insights. I'll definitely take keep that in mind.

It's not that I want to do illegal things (believe me, I probably wouldn't know what to do with such things hah) but more for R&D projects. And pure curiosity.
Thanks again

An underground website is one that's not listed on Google, often only accessible on the dark web using an anonymous browser such as Tor.

Typically, these sites are used to host illegal or otherwise not very friendly websites.

If you go on YouTube and search for a BBC Horizon documentary called "Inside The Darkweb", that'll show you what can be done using a Tor browser.
