The Dark Web just got darker with a new Google-like drug search engine

A new search engine aimed at making it easier to find and buy drugs, guns, stolen credit cards, and more has popped up on the Dark Net

The so-called Dark Web is one of the few places on the Internet that I rarely visit, which is mostly because I have no reason to visit the type of websites it caters too. With sites like Silk road and other illegal sites populating this seedy corner of the web, it is no surprise that someone has developed a search engine to make it easier to find the illegal stuff you might be searching for.

"I noticed on the forums and Reddit people were constantly asking 'where to get product X?' and 'which market had product X?' or 'who had the best product X and was reliable and not a scam?'" Grams' creator, Gramsadmin, said in an interview with Wired. "I wanted to make it easy for people to find things they wanted on the Dark Net and figure out who was a trustworthy vendor."

Grams has been online since last week, and appears to sever solely as a search engine that queries multiple drug and gun exchanges located on the Dark Web. The search engine is only accessible through the TOR browser and list search results with prices per product listed. Users can change the denomination to the currency of their choosing including Bitcoin, USD and more. It was only a matter of time before something like this popped up, and I am willing to bet that it will not be the last time it happens.
