Level of Expertise
The level of expertise shown by this exercise is to be expected. Malicious activity against organizations that technologically are publicly facing is attainable even by novice level actors. The dark web is a venue for predominantly experienced individuals and groups. If malicious activity is to take place, it's only logical that it would be more advanced.
