Automated Data Theft Detection Tool

To limit data theft and prevent further exploitation, this machine learning-based software anonymously crawls through covert channels such as the deep or dark web as a way of identifying data being shared by malicious parties. The software acts as an automated script that systematically browses through the internet and saves the data encountered. Starting from a handful of seed links, the software crawls through web pages to eventually map a significant portion of the entire web itself.
The resulting data can then be analyzed using pattern matching techniques to identify proprietary content, subsequently contacting the owner and allowing them to take appropriate action. Along with machine vision, images could be analyzed in real-time. If unethical or illegal behavior is encountered, law enforcement could be applied automatically.
