HugBunter: Dread and Darknet Avengers Targeted by DOS Attack
HugBunter, the creator of the darkweb discussion forum Dread, posted an announcement on the subreddit used to send alerts concerning Dread uptime. An attacker is exploiting a vulnerability in tor that has “no clear resolution,” the developer wrote in the update. There is no clear resolution in sight.
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA512 Tor Project seem to be no closer to a resolution and I don't see a mirror cycling system as being worthwile for Dread. The attack has now widened to Avengers forum, which is another great resource. Especially when Dread and similar services are down. I will decide whether to go forward with the current back up plans if nothing changes shortly, I'll try keep everyone updated through this sub. Thank you again for continued patience. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- iQIzBAEBCgAdFiEEYTOs4fS4fFHb8/6l6GEFEPmm6SIFAl0SeYUACgkQ6GEFEPmm 6SIlsxAAmmhLw1rQiTOVn4zZDBW+pd3HrwkCdckZD1+o5B+/DQxBGfoakhTzl5fS frhf8BlZ1/VeDMIrmrTXtZrBiqMQlroWAwlEibTWi+T8qC1DgqiNaUec5eI6EmgD ev7Vc45SXqMiJW87GPzf1Ke6U2y70fOWT7PQBnL3Tau3pJ2ptsTxz7gji/Be76ta 0qWEy0wm9sf7H7noFZd28IycaVBuyj3Y8e1lpsZ4cwHNLTOx1L+AWVRCDynhX2LW LAvdyi/6AahufWg+HJo6j8EV+JWNc3DNIypjR3Ero/A9Pgb7YNalw6tZGfIQSneD zMskq6+cgXzgmgqZDbzsheN6gQucGjv64QqKLMb7OFCQ95vGgsz6uGPn3f5zJIU7 0Rgj7DwiqzzkBPGS6wpWLHlA83Z7vtmP74zdLelXr1FKfP0qY0GFzyN6+hxXIYN1 KG6ds7TzgTltWtRQIghGZnMa1h2qH+UZv6R8SsdgC/5yUGA2qZ5RZv5uUzFK/7xd sKIfG5+tQ2haTZ90zREIHGw0xv0DmeyvoLk2jebsIECELb+9nIlGyc2DtkmPGs/k SJXJTOHuZ3KYc/1af+k2MRiLTyJbX0eQpxY85h9pejvB3uSd9YeKxEqLtOmOgZ+i B6ZzPFdNJg7a1xFlFML0VwMRZCf/uOTBxQCCKKsnKy36khd8VGo= =Cv64 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
