60% of the Information for Sale on the Dark Web Can Damage a Business
Most IT professionals automatically figure Dark Web threats like stolen password files or different kinds of ransomware into their calculations when they’re planning cybersecurity strategies. However, there are many types of information that can hurt businesses that can be easily obtained on the Dark Web including:
- Payment Card Information – Stolen or skimmed credit card data (and the software to capture it) is a perennial bestseller.
- Research Data – Medical research including information about new drugs and therapies is a hot commodity, especially COVID-19 data.
- Trade Secrets & Formulas – Proprietary manufacturing information is both popular and easy to sell.
- Blueprints & Security Plans– From buildings to networks, all kinds of schematics and planning data is useful for bad actors.
- Medical Records – They’re especially popular for blackmail and spearfishing ammunition.
- Financial Records – This multipurpose data is desirable for money laundering, blackmail, spearfishing, and identity theft.
- Intelligence Reports – International espionage is a big market that’s high-danger but high-reward.
- Government Secrets – Investigations, communication, programs, budgets, documents, and more sell fast.
“As a Service” Offerings Are the New “It” Category
Why just sell your password when you can keep making money by selling your services? “As a Service” transactions on the Dark Web are proliferating, and that creates big dangers for every company. Malicious insiders with access to specialized data, systems, or institutions can make a fortune by selling their services to facilitate other cybercrimes.
Insider threats also include things like embezzlement, records tampering, money laundering, crypto mining, deploying malware, stock trading, espionage, and more dastardly deeds. These workers are generally looking for profit instead of revenge, but sometimes that’s a factor – and they’ll keep doing it until they’re caught.
Dark Web markets aren’t just focused on selling data, passwords, and hacking services. There’s also a booming trade in dangerous, illegal, and disgusting commodities that can’t be sold publicly like weapons, narcotics, stolen goods, looted antiquities, illegal commodities, endangered animals, slave labor, and child pornography – plus harmless yet strange things that you wouldn’t expect.
Thanks & Cheers

Chinese smartphone major Xiaomi has been around for more than five years in India. On its way to market leadership in the country, Xiaomi has adopted an aggressive strategy with respect to prices and product launches.
Now, another Chinese company, Realme is chasing Xiaomi, and chasing hard. The competition between Xiaomi and Realme has already gone beyond smartphones. Realme recently announced its financial credit service called Payसा that will compete with Xiaomi’s Mi Credit. Realme is also planning to launch a fitness band and Smart TVs later this year to take on Xiaomi in these categories.
Xiaomi’s foray into India
Xiaomi debuted in India back in 2014 and changed the Indian smartphone industry forever. At a time when Indian buyers were wary of buying smartphones online, Xiaomi chose to go the online-only model.
Its first launch, the Mi 3, proved to be a massive success. The company sold the smartphone in weekly flash sales, and quite often, it ran out of stock within seconds of the start of the sales. [hyperlink to any one story preferably from a third or fourth sale which has reference to prev sellouts]
Xiaomi has consistently increased its market share since its debut. In late 2017, Xiaomi finally beat Samsung to become the market leader with a share of 25%, while Samsung came in second at 23%.
According to data reported by Counterpoint Research, Xiaomi has seemingly peaked at a market share of 31%.
Realme debuted in India in May 2018 with an entry-level smartphone called the Realme 1. Realme has since launched several smartphones that compete with Xiaomi’s offerings both in terms of the features as well as pricing.
At the moment, Realme has smartphones starting at ₹5,999 and going all the way up to ₹34,999. In comparison, Xiaomi’s smartphone portfolio starts at ₹4,299 and goes up to ₹29,999.
Realme’s strategy of competing with Xiaomi on both features as well as price has paid handsome dividends – Realme has gained 16% market share by September 2019 in just two years of its presence in India.
At the same time, Xiaomi’s market share in the same period fell from 31% to 26%.
War of words
The competition went beyond products. Realme’s quick rise in the Indian smartphone industry also led to a war of words between the heads of Realme and Xiaomi. It did not help that Realme’s messaging took on Xiaomi directly.
Sparks flew between the two companies when Xiaomi India MD Manu Kumar Jain attacked Realme’s latest smartphone on Twitter. Realme CEO Madhav Sheth responded later.
Going beyond smartphones
While Xiaomi has built a wide portfolio of products in India over the course of the last few years, Realme’s primary products remain smartphones and accessories. That seems to be changing now.
Realme CEO Madhav Sheth teased the company’s first fitness band at the launch of its . Expected to launch in the first half of 2020, the Realme fitness band could be priced aggressively to compete with Xiaomi’s Mi Band range.
Realme has also announced its arrival in the financial services space with the launch of Payसा. With this, it takes on Xiaomi’s Mi Credit service. Realme hopes to acquire 25 million Payसा users in the next two years.
Both Xiaomi and Realme have plans to launch Internet of Things (IoT) products in India in 2020.
Realme TVs are also on the way
Realme CMO Xu Qi Chase has also confirmed that the company will launch its TV portfolio in 2020. Going by Realme’s history so far, the first Realme TVs could compete with Xiaomi’s Mi TV models in most aspects.
The launch of Realme TVs in India might not change the landscape much, though. Xiaomi’s Mi TV portfolio is spread across different price segments, starting at ₹12,499 and going all the way up to ₹47,999. This gives both Xiaomi and Realme enough room to exist simultaneously, unlike the budget smartphone segment which has cutthroat competition.
For the premium TV buyers, though, Smart TVs from Xiaomi and Realme may not even matter even though they offer plenty of features at a fraction of the price.
For one, the display quality and viewing experience on TVs from Sony, LG, Samsung, and even OnePlus is far superior. Apart from this, most TV buyers seem to be preferring Fire TV sticks which are flexible and cheaper to replace or upgrade if necessary.
Michael Glassner, who served as a chief operating officer of former President Trump's 2020 reelection campaign, has been asked to become CEO of America Alliance.
"For years Republicans have been at a fundraising disadvantage, but now thanks to Save America, Make America Great Again PAC, America Alliance, our fine party committees and all of our other supporting groups we're going to beat the Democrats at their own game," Trump said in a statement on Friday.
I want to express our solidarity with the people of India as they battle a dangerous wave of COVID-19. Our prayers for a speedy recovery go to all those suffering from the pandemic in our neighbourhood & the world. We must fight this global challenge confronting humanity together— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) April 24, 2021
Qureshi said the pandemic was a reminder that "humanitarian issues require responses beyond political consideration", adding that Pakistan continued to work with Saarc (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) to increase cooperation to tackle Covid-19.

Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said prayers of Pakistani citizens were with the people of India, adding: "May God be kind and may these difficult times get over soon."
"We are all in this struggle to stem the massive surge of the deadly third wave. Unfortunate that many in West have sought to only seal their borders rather than help," she added, apparently referring to countries like the United Kingdom and Canada that have temporarily banned flights from India.
