🌍 WikiLeaks and Cryptome data in numbers

We have a search category named “WikiLeaks”, which contains the data from WikiLeaks, Cryptome, and the Snowden Files.

Indexing the data (= the process of making it searchable by parsing and creating a search index) has quite a few challenges. There are both organizational and technical challenges:

  • Content that is of no interest and should not be indexed
    • Pornographic content
    • Extreme violence
    • Fake news
    • Spam
  • Different file types, encodings, compressions
  • Overall no clear structure and index. Sometimes there are duplicates, and sometimes files appear to be missing.

tl;dr, this is the amount of WikiLeaks data indexed by Intelligence X:

  • Items: 5,664,971
  • Unique selectors: 368,818
  • Total extracted selectors: 41,213,169
  • Size of data files (total): 471 GB

Most of the extracted selectors are emails (46%), followed by credit cards (19%), and URLs (15%).

The Cryptome data, in comparison, is much smaller:

  • Items: 93,234
  • Unique selectors: 333,122
  • Total extracted selectors: 539,908
  • Size of data files (total): 39 GB

🐞 Viruses on the Darknet

We store 13,158,345 items for Tor (since 2017) and 1,954,070 items for I2P (since 2018). Those items include lots of historical and current copies of websites and other files. We scanned everything with the ESET antivirus program to see if there are any viruses.

Here is the short summary:

  • 1 file detected on I2P, which was actually a false-positive
  • 2944 files detected on Tor
