The FBI has shut down one of the world’s biggest cyber fraud platforms

Genesis.Market, a major dark web marketplace for stolen personal data, has been shut down in a multinational policing operation. 

The homepage of Genesis.Market has been defaced and replaced with the usual FBI notice stating “This Website Has Been Seized”. The notice also shows logos of a dozen law enforcement agencies, suggesting that the operation involved police forces in multiple countries, including Canada, Sweden, France, Germany, and others. Europol also seems to have been involved.
