    Life and death of RaidForums, the largest illegal personal data superstore. Initially created in 2015 to coordinate harassment campaigns, the site has become the epicenter of the largest data thefts in recent years.
    Such type of content must be removed from the internet as it provokes crime globally and people with criminal mindset get easy access of illegal networks.
