The infamous hacker collective Anonymous has launched its web chat services on the Deep Web

The news was announced on the popular Twitter accounts of the hacktivist group and very soon it was circulating all over social media. The post stated that Deep Web will be hosting Anonymous’ chat service through which the group members will get to strengthen their position. Another important objective that the hackers aim to achieve through this new service is to “arm the current and coming generations of internet activists with education.”

“Our plan is to provide virtual classrooms where, on a scheduled basis, ‘teachers’ can give lessons on any number of subjects,” read the post from Anonymous.

Apparently, the new chat service dubbed as OnionIRC will be hosted on the Deep Web.

Deep Web can be understood as the underworld area of the internet that cannot be accessed by Google because special protocols are required to reach it. Through the protocols, members and users of Deep Web can perform their operations anonymously and with enhanced security. This gives them an open opportunity to perform all sorts of operation on the Internet from viewing private footages to conducting malicious scams, selling off stolen data and even for terrorism-related activities.

Just a few hours later, we checked the new service from Anonymous and to our amusement, there were only 20 people present in the room and out of the 20 just 3 to 4 users had an idea about the new service or even Anon ops. So uninformed were these clueless users in the chat room that they were learning about newly heard terms such as hacking.

The organizer, however, tried his best to teach them as comprehensively as possible. The organizer, appearing in the chat room as “Butts,” stated in an open chat session this Tuesday that:

“I wouldn’t expect there to be any planned lessons taught for a bit here.Things are just starting off and we want to see how things go for a bit, hopefully, build a bit of a user base, and then we’ll kick it off with some awesome in-house presentations.”

In case you want to join the chat session and learn more about Anonymous then the complete information about the joining procedure can be accessed from this link. In fact, the process is so simple that even someone having no particular knowledge about technology can join the chat service easily.
