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.

      🤗 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?

      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.

      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.
