The Department of Justice's Cyber Security division launched a 20 country coordinated takedown of the hacking website/forum Darkode, codename Shrouded Horizon. About 70 of its members have been identified and many arrested across the world, including 12 from America. Darkode has been a marketplace to purchase and trade hacking tools since at least 2008. It's considered the largest, most sophisticated English-language criminal marketplace in the world, and hackers go there when they need the latest malware, spam programs, and access to botnets and 0-day vulnerabilities.
