Dark net members targeting individuals

Is this a thing? I am beginning to suspect it may be a thing based on few people’s paranoia of being targeted and harassed.

    Very, very dark subject. From what I’ve read, more than one source claims that it is a narcissistic tendency of the target to believe he or she is being sought after.

    It could be something else, too. I have witnessed individuals falsely hyper-associating causes with events during episodes of bipolar mania as well.

    But I’m sure that if you have a string of events where, with each successive one, the chances of coincidence literally become exponentially less, one could state that “beyond a reasonable doubt / shadow of a doubt” that someone has taken interest in them.

    What are your thoughts?

      Something demonstrable of one of these unnamed many reasons. Otherwise, it's just arguing in bad faith.

      So it's evidence only to her. Not something she can reproduce. Okay.

      Interesting point, what if that was the whole point of it all, evidence enough to spook her but not enough for her to be able to demonstrate to others?

      It doesn't matter. It's still not evidence and very easy to concoct for extra viewership on YouTube. This shit hooks people. Do you know Occam's Razor? Without evidence, Is it more simple that someone is going out of their way to scare her for no discernable reason or it's a compelling tale that requires no real proof to generate interest on a YouTube channel for profit?

      My money is on the latter. The first has no compelling motive. The second is an easy motive.

      All that said, now I'm curious. What video is this? Got a link?

      🤗 true, but now I can see why you're convinced. No shade.

      Me being convinced was not the point, i see the possibilities of tech being used against individuals if a few groups of talented individuals chooses to do so.

      Not the things that she's talking about, no. Also, not one bit of that has anything to do with the dark web whatsoever.

    I’m confused what’s being asked. Whether dark net members are trying to hire hit men?

      Proof?

      And no. Facebook does not store plain text passwords. Seriously come on. Lolol

      SSNs are not identifiable info.

      Did you not read the news the other day about how instagram accounts were hacked because they stored passwords as plain text?

      It wasnt just ssn, he had access to information like names and addresses, since it was a healthcare platform

      All in all, sounds like you already know what you want to believe, so conversation is moot. Sorry you're seem so paranoid. Maybe you could take a few courses in Internet security to help better protect things you create.

      Yes, I have access to that info at Clover Health as well. That doesn't make me a hacker of the dark web, nor does it put people in tons of danger. SSNs have been considered insecure for some time now. If you're not locking down your credit report when you're not using it, you should have a long time ago. Other than that, what good is it for that would make it worth stealing?

      I already have a masters degree in CS part of which was network security and cryptography, but all these needs to be applied in principle at the tech companies, based on the instagram news, its them who needs more education, not me.

      Also my point being, its the intent of the tech employees and the easy access to user’s data, if they choose to exploit, because you didnt doesnt mean others dont

      Well you can't affect them, can you? So do your part to be safe, even if that includes not using Instagram or other products until you are personally assured of safety with your data.

      I'd still argue you could use some more education or at least listen to the responses you asked for instead of arguing your internal bias. I'm not even a social engineering hacker, but I can see through these examples pretty simply.

      OP
      Thanks for your observations and suggestions. I am happy with my understanding of the security principles.

      Random people targeting people on the internet isnt such a random thing, since most people understand how to use data against individuals. My examples are observations of what other situations could have caused her to be paranoid, i was trying to empathize and understand where it must be coming from. Instead of being an arrogant ignorant and dismissing someone’s cry for help

      Glad you're happy. 🤙

      I'm all for empathizing, too. But, I also know when not to get sucked into manipulation. Entertainment like YouTube is not real life. Anyone smart enough to run a channel for profit knows exactly what they're doing. That's not arrogant not ignorant. That's reasoned.

      Now, if you'd kindly stick to your arguments instead of insulting people without basis...

    I mean, sure? But not in some Hollywood way.
