What if there were "countries" the size of the average suburban household? What if they had their own rules, laws, and currencies? What if one of them almost brought the entire Internet to its knees? They're called data havens, and they are the Switzerlands of the Internet: bunkers, caves, and sea fortresses, offering cybercriminals and freedom fighters alike the privacy to conduct unregulated information exchanges, malware attacks, spam dumps, ransomware breaches, and more. Nearly every cybercriminal alive walks these halls, virtually or literally. Here today, gone tomorrow, disappearing and re-emerging, these independent micro-nations are the sole provider of true online privacy, offering 100% anonymity without any government restrictions. Welcome to The Most Dangerous Town on the Internet.
