FBI “Operation Cookie Monster”

Dark web marketplace Genesis has been shuttered. UK cops said 17 countries were involved in the operation, led by the FBI and Dutch which resulted in about 120 arrests. The US Treasury Department called Genesis “one of the most prominent brokers of stolen credentials and other sensitive information”. Genesis specialized in the sale of digital products, especially “browser fingerprints” harvested from computers infected with malicious software.
