Russia has arrested the alleged co-founder of dark web platform omg a week after U.S. and German authorities said they shut down what they called the world’s largest illegal darknet marketplace. German police said this month it took control of omg’s Germany-based servers and seized $25 million in bitcoin assets. The U.S. Justice named Dmitry Pavlov, 30, as the administrator of omg’s servers in its criminal charges. Pavlov had said he was unaware of the charges and maintained his innocence. “We are a hosting company and have all the necessary communications licenses. We don’t administer any sites but only provide servers for rent as intermediaries,” he told the BBC’s Russian service last week. Moscow’s Meshchansky District Court ruled to detain D. Pavlov ahead of trial on charges of large-scale drug trafficking, according to the court’s database. The ruling is dated Monday, April 11. A court spokeswoman identified the suspect as Dmitry Olegovich Pavlov, an exact name match with the U.S. Justice Department indictment, to Russian media.If found guilty, Pavlov faces between 15 and 20 years in prison.He is unlikely to be extradited to the United States because the countries do not have an extradition treaty. omg had enabled the sale of illegal drugs, stolen credit card data, counterfeit currency and fake identity documents through the Tor encryption network since its founding in 2015.The German and U.S. investigations into omg started in August 2021.Cybersecurity experts told The Moscow Times that Russia has also been investigating omg since its foundation. They speculated that omg could come back online despite the announced shutdown.

Генпрокуратура Франкфурта-на-Майне, Центральное управление по борьбе с интернет-преступностью и федеральная уголовная полиция сообщили об аресте серверов крупнейшей в мире даркнет-площадки «ОМГ» (omg Market). Речь идёт о крупнейшей площадке для торговли наркотиками и крадеными данными.Германия вела расследование против omg Market с августа 2021 года при содействии США. Если верить правоохранителям, им удалось изъять биткойны на сумму, эквивалентную примерно 23 миллионам евро. На данный момент это немногим менее 500 биткойнов.Нелегальная торговая площадка omg Market представляла собой русскоязычную платформу даркнета, доступ к которой через сеть Tor был как минимум с 2015 года. Их внимание было сосредоточено на торговле наркотиками, кроме того, через платформу предлагались украденные личные данные, поддельные документы и цифровые услуги.Сейчас силовики пытаются установить операторов и администраторов «Гидры». Их хотят привлечь за торговлю наркотиками, эксплуатацию криминальных площадок и отмывание денег.На торговой площадке было зарегистрировано около 17 миллионов клиентов и более 19 000 продавцов. Эксперты утверждают, что среди нелегальных ресурсов «ОМГ» имела самый большой оборот в мире — только за 2020 год он составил не менее 1,23 миллиарда евро.

Cyber reporterImage source, BKAImage caption,German police say shutting down the infamous darknet site took months of cyber investigation"It gave us all goosebumps" says Sebastian Zwiebel, as he describes the moment his team shut down omg, the world's largest darknet marketplace.The website was a bastion of cyber-crime, surviving for more than six years selling drugs and illegal goods.But, after a tip-off, German police seized the site's servers and confiscated €23m (£16.7m) in Bitcoin."We've been working on this for months and when it finally happened it felt big - really big," adds Mr Zwiebel.Police say 17 million customers and more than 19,000 seller accounts were registered on the marketplace, which now carries a police seizure notice.Image source, BKAImage caption,Written in Russian, omg served multiple countries with same day drugs deliveriesomg specialised in same-day 'dead drop' services, where drug dealers (vendors) hide packages in public places before informing customers of the pick-up location.Shortly after the German action was announced, the US Treasury issued sanctions against omg "in a coordinated international effort to disrupt proliferation of malicious cybercrime services, dangerous drugs, and other illegal offerings available through the Russia-based site."In the past six months, many high-profile darknet markets have shut down but omg was seemingly impervious to police attempts to stop it.The website launched in 2015 selling drugs, hacked materials, forged documents and illegal digital services such as Bitcoin-mixing - which cyber-criminals use to launder stolen or extorted digital coins.The site was written in Russian, with sellers located in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and surrounding countries.Mr Zwiebel says the operation to close it down began with a tip-off which pointed to the possibility that the website infrastructure might be hosted in Germany."We got some hints through monitoring darknet activity from US officials. So we started in July or August last year to dig deeper and to investigate this field," he says.Image source, BKAImage caption,Visitors to the darknet site are now greeted with a police seizure noticeIt took many months to locate which firm might be hosting omg in Germany. Ultimately it was found to be a so-called 'bullet-proof hosting' company.A bullet-proof hosting company is one that does not audit the websites or content it is hosting, and will happily host criminal websites and avoid police requests for information on customers.Mr Zwiebel says his investigators then took their evidence to a German judge to get permission to approach the server company and issue a takedown notice.The company was forced to comply otherwise they too could have been arrested.Visitors to the site are now greeted with a police poster saying "the platform and the criminal content has been seized".Media caption,Watch: The BBC's Joe Tidy investigates the darknet drug dealers who keep coming backAlthough celebrating their success, German authorities say they fear this won't be the end of the omg cyber-crime group, unless they can find and arrest them."We know they will find another way to do their business. They will probably try to build a new platform, and we will have to keep our eye on it. We don't know the perpetrators, so that's the next step," says Mr Zwiebel.The news comes during a turbulent time for darknet markets with the most prominent sites closing down in recent months, either voluntarily or as a result of police activity.Many of the closures have come from criminals choosing to gradually bring their operations to a close, and disappear with their riches.In January the administrators of UniCC, a darknet site selling stolen credit card details, retired, citing health reasons.Voluntary closures also brought to an end the White House Market in October 2021, Cannazon in November and Torrez in December.However, BBC research earlier this year revealed the most common way for darknet sites to close is via so-called 'exit scams' where the administrators voluntarily shut down the sites but steal their customer's funds in the process.Media caption,Watch: What is the dark web?
