Moreover, the dark market sells the hacking tools of low level and the details of stolen credit cards.

Not only the exploits, has the RealDeal also sold the countermeasures against the potential financial frauds. Drugs, weapons, Remote Access Trojans (TATs) are also available on the dark web market.
