Dark web market Cannazon shuts down after massive DDoS attack

Cannazon, one of the largest dark web marketplaces for buying marijuana products, shut down last week after suffering a debilitating distributed denial of service attack.

As the admins explained in a message signed with the market’s PGP key, they are officially retiring and claim not to be pulling an exit scam on their vendors.

The admins posted that message on November 23, 2021, and today, Cannazon went offline, allegedly forever.

A DDoS attack led to shut down

The site was hit by a massive DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack at the start of the month, which is not uncommon for dark web markets.

The admins reduced the number of orders and kept the market partially offline for a while to mitigate the problems, but this has created a buzz in the community, fearing an imminent exit scam.
