Dread Now Has an i2p Mirror (DDoS Update)

Dread is now accessible over i2p.

After a period of downtime, Paris—one of the administrators of Dread—published the hostname of Dread’s i2p mirror.

In the announcement post for the March 2022 Dread update (Dread V3), Paris promised an i2p mirror for Dread. The eepsite launch was apparently delayed due to stability issues:

“A new i2p endpoint is online and flood-filling but it hasn’t been as stable as I need it to be. I’ll be holding off posting the address till such time (probably within a couple of days). I can get it more stable for an average user to visit if you want to both prepare and help this process along install i2pd and running it. This network needs to 2X its size with a shit ton more nodes which have ipv6. I’m doing what I can to get it up, but the reach-ability of the address is poor, and connections are unstable. It is better than when I have tried before but more work needs to be done on this. It is far more resistant against DDOS attacks though, and with enough noise Sybil attacks become basically impossible to conduct on anything other than an extremely targeted attack.”

Paris wrote that “someone doesn’t want [Dread] online” on April 12, 2022. The post referenced a distributed denial-of-service attack that rendered Dread inaccessible. As one of the largest and most well-known onion services with a western userbase, the downtime did not go unnoticed. Infosec Twitter users suggested that law enforcement had sponsored the attacks (the FBI once paid CMU to conduct a traffic confirmation attack and a Sybil attack during an investigation into marketplaces).

Darknetlive’s peanut gallery claimed that “asap siezed [sic], dread siezed [sic], abacus siezed [sic]” or, “Dread, cryptostamps, and ASAP were all seized.” Dread, cryptostamps, ASAP, and Abacus are online without apparent seizure signs. Dread’s onion service is only intermittently working though. The commenters apparently have access to secret evidence.

Paris, “Someone doesn’t want us up. April 11 DDOS attack. I2P mirror online?” (signed copy below this post).

And here I was going to just relax a bit, work on the recon update, and not worry too much. BUT NO. We can’t have nice things.

I have been delaying the i2p endpoint announcement simply because my reliability with the i2p network has been… terrible is one word I’ll use. It might because how I’m personally connecting into the i2p network or because of how the i2p network system is designed for dread (layers of i2p nodes to the core). I was figuring it out and also gathering information about how the i2p network handles different things. There is a chicken and an egg problem here with i2p. They need more people using their network. It is, from what I got from the IPs and bandwidth statistics on the distributed floodfill nodes, far smaller and far less resistant to Sybil attacks. They don’t try to hide that fact (in their fantastic documentation) but it is still a problem. With scale there is a lot of promise here with the proper supports.

Dread will NEVER use any addressbook which can transparently MiTM attack you. It is very important to only visit using the base32 hostname. With that being said I’m going forward with the announcement to provide a hopefully more stable as time goes on i2p mirror.

This is Paris from Dread. As promised we now have an i2p mirror:

http://dreadtoobigdsrxg4yfspcyjr3k6675vftyco5pyb7wg4pr4dwjq.b32.i2p

It is the biggest dicked i2p website yet. Guaranteed.

There are people who leave helpful comments on Darknetlive articles, though. One user posted a reminder that HugBunter has been missing for two months. HugBunter’s last comment on Dread was on February 20, 2022—54 days from the time of writing. Additionally, HugBunter’s warrant canary is out of date by 15 days at the time of writing (the canary update was “scheduled for Thursday, March 31, 2022”). This is not the first time HugBunter has let a canary expire.

Paris has a current canary as of April 15, 2022. The canary is due for an update by today (April 15, 2022), but Paris and HugBunter often operate on Dread time (Gregorian date ± three days). Busy onion service operators regularly miss their self-imposed deadline by a day or two.

It look like the USA “Intelligence” Community iss closing in to Dread staff. Well, or the stress of running the most used darknet site of alltime is catching up to them. Whatever happens, dread will not be online forever and there need to be a contingency plan for when Dread goes offline for good.

Dread admin should encrypt and upload a copy of all source code and server configuration needed to run a Dread instance so all may download. Then they must add a script that will check each the admin own canaries, and if both are expired by more than 30 days it will automatically change the dread homepage to the decryption password for the encrypted file with everything needed to setup and run dread replacement.

This is good idea, no? No downsides so it should be done.

Doesn’t i2p rely entirely on trust? Meaning host always sees connection isp. If host site were compromised, they would have all connected isps information? The only thing that I see i2p worth is securing against vector attacks.
The Hub, Envoy, The Majestic Garden, Endchan/dnm, BreakingBad forums, Alphabay forums, Nemesis forums, and Kilos chat are the only places left to go with 99% uptime and no reliance on i2p for stability and visibility like dread has lowered their standards to.

I would like to see a real technical cost-benefit analysis for i2p vs the current standard of Tor hidden services. There clearly must be something valuable if both Dread and AlphaBay are supporting, and I don’t think LE ‘convinced’ either to do it.

ac428ec9
427aba20 Sat, Apr 23, 2022

Take a look at their docs a bit sparse but those plus some testing you’ll see why I2P is better. See like 90% of all these comments come from admins who are either jealous of alphabay or hate paris or dread because they didn’t let their scam markets to be on there

e910266f
b5e41db0 Thu, Apr 21, 2022

I’m hearing i2P is littered with 0 days because it’s that new new and highly underdeveloped (although the idea is more solid)… I mean you’re not even really getting compromised by the waterfall of DDOS man sounds like a federal mass operation but that shit sure is a bitch when connection speeds are already slow on Tor and most people aren’t ISPs haha, you’ve got to wonder… who DeSnake is and the opportunity that has fallen into said individuals lap.
-Please provide your thoughts, thanks.

b9a68770 Thu, Apr 21, 2022

I mean, I guess DeSnake might actually be behind the DDOS attacks, I think we can observe from the comments perhaps DeSnake might do something like that, showing off in front of HB, probably doesn’t like Paris to much and could certainly do numbers for those difficult enrollments haha everyone should get a 2.0 man
