The investigation, which was led by the cybercrime unit of the Koblenz Public Prosecutor's Office, allowed officers to locate and close the marketplace, switch off the servers and seize the criminal infrastructure – more than 20 servers in Moldova and Ukraine supported by the German Federal Criminal Police office (BKA). The stored data will give investigators new leads to further investigate moderators, sellers, and buyers.

I wonder who owned these servers.

yea it will be interesting to hear where the servers were... especially since they claim they learned the necessary info from CyberBunker bust...wonder if that pointed them to another bulletproof hoster?

"The investigation into Cyberbuker, a bulletproof hosting provider, provided law enforcement with the information needed to launch an investigation into DarkMarket."

When they say Moldova, I always think Trabia.

And mivocloud.com, although I'm not sure how bulletproof it's considered to be.
