Our dataset continues to grow significantly: 17,660,962,195 selectors
In the past few months, we have invested in 200+ TB of enterprise storage which allows us to scale up data collection even more. As for the public web, we are currently crawling these TLDs: DE, AT, LU, CH, UA, KZ, RU
Later this week we will increase our coverage of TLDs and include major ones like .com, .org, .net, and many others.

Last month, we took a close look on Tor. We investigated spam websites run as Tor hidden services and published a blog post here.
tl;dr we removed from our Tor index:
We looked into Tor vanity domains which are .onion domains that include human recognizable text usually in the beginning. An example is “silkroad7rn2puhj.onion”. Read all details in this blog post. tl;dr: Only 11 out of 16 characters of onion addresses can be cracked using a used $300 GPU. 12 out of 16 will cost you at least $12k and cracking a full onion domain about $13 billion.
Lastly, we want to push the message that Tor hidden services are a failed technology doing “much more harm than good in practice”. We reposted an important blog post from the Lawfare Institute here.
Yesterday we tried to self-ddos ourselves by using a shady DDoS-attacks-as-a-service provider. We documented it here with screenshots of the attack, statistics, and graphs showing the amount of IPs, bandwidth and packets per seconds used in the attacks. tl;dr:
Europol issued a press release stating: “Polish and Swiss law enforcement authorities, supported by Europol and Eurojust, dismantled InfinityBlack, a hacking group involved in distributing stolen user credentials, creating and distributing malware and hacking tools, and fraud.”
This takedown included the website datasense[.]pw, which, according to its own description, is a “combo cloud service that let’s you access thousands of databases, in a matter of seconds”. It is said that the hacking group was responsible for the massive Collection #1 data leak from January 2019.
This new development follows the seizure of WeLeakInfo in January 2020 by the FBI and European authorities.
