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.

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.
