….More than 27,000 subscribers to the vile secret network had access to 2,000 videos filmed on computer webcams.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the US said they had arrested 14 American men who operated the member-only site from the southern state of Louisiana.

….They have been charged with running a child exploitation enterprise after allegedly distributing the material through the Tor network, or so-called ‘dark web’.

This allows Internet anonymity by hiding online traffic and a user’s location.

The network, which was operated for a year from mid-2012 to last June, was unmasked after an item was sent through the US Postal Service to a child.

….Over a period of just 47 working hours – the IWF logged 12,224 sexual images or videos of young people that had been uploaded to the internet.

Of these, 10,776 were later found on so-called ‘parasite’ websites, often designed solely for the purpose of displaying explicit images of children or teenagers.
