In 2009, a secret cyber-hacking operation was uncovered in China, that infected 103 countries with an elaborate phishing scam. Once the computers were infected, the hackers could turn on video cameras and microphones to spy on any room.
To date, no one knows who was behind it, or what happened to the information that was collected.
The Inventor of BitCoin
BitCoin was first invented back in 2009, and was composed of over 30,000 lines of code. It’s now one of the most valuable crypto-currencies in the world. All the world knows is that someone named “Satoshi Nakamoto” is attributed with inventing it, but there’s no evidence that he really exists or who he really is.
The ‘Valor por Tamaulipas’ Facebook page
This Facebook page has over 615,000 followers and has been releasing data about Mexican cartel operations, hideouts and crime scene information. The data given out by the site has caused the cartel to put high prices on the heads of the whistleblowers, except no one knows who they are.
This website had messages and puzzles that no average person could figure out. It also had a countdown clock that people suspected led to the armageddon. Once the site reached the date in the countdown, a mysterious phone number appeared, and if you called it, you heard a weird noise.
Soon after, the site mysteriously got wiped from the web, and most believe it was a secret test for the CIA, NSA or the Illuminati to recruit new members.
This website appeared online in 2003 and captivated everyone’s attention. Owned by British artist David Denison, it’s filled with webpages of nonsense and disturbing images and text.
Some say it’s just avant-garde art, while others say that the puzzles and images lead to a greater mystery.
This is the handle of a mysterious user on 4Chan, who posts comments about the changing political and judicial future of the country. Most deem these theories to be crackpot, but others think that this is a White House insider with access and means. Either way, they’ve got some insight, and no one knows who they are and where their true intentions lie.
First appearing in 2012, this was a website with a cryptic puzzle. Breaking the codes within, took people down a dark and mysterious rabbit hole, to the dark web. Each year, new puzzles would appear and people keep on solving them, but it doesn’t lead anywhere. To date, no one knows who’s making the puzzles and what the reward will be at the end, if any.
The users of 4Chan discovered this website and all it was, was a black page with white font saying “Mortis.” If you clicked that text, it took you to a login page that required a username and password. Some intrepid hackers found that the site contained terabytes of information, and was owned by someone named “Ling.” Before anyone could get any further, the site was taken down by the FBI.
Jack Froese’s email
In 2011, Jack Froese of Pennsylvania suddenly passed away. Five months after, his closest friend got an email from him, that said “I’m watching” and referenced a private joke that only he and his closest friend would know. There was no evidence of a hack or a prank and people were convinced that this was an email from beyond the grave.
The Plague Doctor Video
A creepy video of a spooky plague doctor was sent to a tech blogger, and he was stumped as to the providence and purpose of the video. On the DVD menu, there was a code “11B-X-1371.” So far, no one’s solved this creepy and eerie mystery.
Internet Black Holes
When you send an email or a website doesn’t work, you think that it’s just a bad connection, a coding error or a mistyped email address. However, there is also a a more mysterious reason; internet black holes. Researchers have found that the internet is full of them – these weird anomalies that swallow up data, but no one knows what they really are and where they came from in the first place.
Creepyblog’s “I Feel Fantastic”
This video was posted on Creepyblog’s Youtube in 2009, and quickly reached 15 million views. Where it came from, what it means is still a mystery.
It’s really fucking creepy though.
This was a seemingly boring website that just showed pictures of everyday objects. If you were to click on one of them, you were taken to a page that asked for an “Access Code.” When people did some digging, they discovered that the site was owned by a man named John Little, but for what purpose, they couldn’t figure it out.
Since 2009 there’s been a reclusive Korean woman who’s been live-streaming herself sleeping on the internet. She never leaves the house and claims that she’s been brainwashed and has a tracking chip in her ankle. She claims that the police are keeping her hostage, while the local police say she’s mentally ill. Yet, no one knows the real truth.
This horror game was posted in the Deep Web by a mysterious user, and can only be played through Tor. If you work up the courage to play it, it’ll be like walking through your worst nightmares. No one is sure where it came from and what it means, just that it’s scary as fuck.
This is considered the darkest part of the internet, and has secrets and materials that only a few have access to. Rumour suggest it’s the home of a quantum computer or a sentient AI, and holds all the darkest secrets known to man. Many, however, don’t believe it exists.
Lake City Quiet Pills
This unsolved mystery starts off on Reddit with the death of a user named ReligionofPieace. He used to manage a site called LakeCityQuietPIlls.com, and it was discovered that hidden in the code were disturbing messages about assassination jobs. As it turns out, this might have been a ‘hitman-for-hire’ site hiding in plain view, but no one knows for sure.
This hacker collective uses the Guy Fawkes mask as their symbol and hack pretty much anyone and everyone. It’s unknown how they started and who they are, just that nothing is safe from them.
