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.
The Reddit Post:

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.
