Some sellers have no idea about the risks associated with the publication of such images.


Some merchants doing business on underground marketplaces on the darknet, I forget to remove photos of their goods EXIF data, allowing you to locate them. To such conclusion came the students of Harvard University Paul Licker (Paul Lisker) and Michael rose (Michael Rose) on the results of the study.

Lisker and rose have developed a software to scan images from Black-Market Archives project that the content is illegal trading platforms for research purposes. In the Black-Market Archives you can find information about 83 and 40 forums related to illegal trade, for the period from 2013 to 2015. In total the archive contains over 44 million files capacity of 1.5 TB.

Using Bash scripts and Python, the researchers analyzed the contents of the archive and separated pictures (7 522 284 pieces). After elimination of duplicates they remained 223 471, 276 of which 2 contain geolocation data. The last time deleting the duplicates, researchers have found 229 images, which the criminals forgot to erase the metadata, allowing to determine not only the camera but also the exact GPS coordinates.

The study showed, some merchants have no idea about the risks associated with the publication of these pictures and continue to post pictures from compromising their data.

In addition, Lisker and rose found an interesting fact associated with the images posted on illegal trading platform Agora. The researchers found 963 photos with GPS coordinates that are dated from January 1 through March 18, 2014, and no one made later. According to them, this may be due to the measures taken on the server side by administrators of Agora.
