Resolving technical difficulties with my site that are entirely my fault, human error. There are no signs of compromise. I will update my canary when back online within 24 hours.

MLK Jr.'s Bitcoin activity would have been surveilled. First they hunt criminals, then they hunt activists.

Your wife's boyfriend gave her Monero this Valentine's. Untraceable, you'll never know.

Dread remains under a relentless DDoS attack. "Tor network is starting to break. We will keep scaling out. Until the Tor network crashes." Watch Reddit's /r/DreadAlert for updates.

Activists, researchers, journalists: The security practices that work for "darknet" users are critical to learn in these times of mass surveillance. Use TAILS and PGP to protect sources and yourself. Then, do work worthy of surveillance.

Dread is offline, is under a large DDoS attack according to HugBunter. Reddit's /r/DreadAlert is the normal place to watch for updates from their team, nothing there yet.

You have no right to know when your personal data is subpoenaed, shared. Activists: self host to survive.

Joker's Stash is shutting down. Their front servers were seized recently, but the site remained online.

"We wish all young cyber-gangsters not to lose themselves in the pursuit of easy money (...) all the money in the world will never make you happy."

DarkDotFail on Gab is NOT me. They post phishing links. Report.

Buffer should support Mastodon, they can become a leader in the fediverse. Message them alongside me.

Multiple sources claim that a staff member at DarkMarket also worked at Yellow Brick, which went offline the same week. Did YB exit or were they also arrested? Remember that LE does not announce all arrests.

For the first time on the darknet, the most active market does not accept Bitcoin. White House Market uses Monero, a cryptocurrency designed to safeguard the privacy of its previous owners, like cash.

White House Market is now the most active darknet market following DarkMarket's seizure. It has many security features that frustrate newcomers.

When it comes to privacy, usually the easier a site/app is to use, the less protected you are. Don't buy drugs, don't commit crimes.

How many LE agencies does it take to seize a Tor hidden service? Eleven, apparently.

ALERT: DarkMarket seized by German authorities. It was the largest darknet drug marketplace for 3 months.

Empire and Dream Market admins are still at large. Dream was online for seven years.

If the ongoing attack on Tor is intentional, why force all v3 .onions on the "darknet" offline? It could be to convince admins to launch v2 .onions, which could be compromised in some way. Governments don't report bugs.

Ongoing Tor consensus issues caused all v3 .onions to be offline for ~3 of the past 12hrs. I believe it is an intentional attack on Tor. It began on Jan 6th.

Dark Market remains offline for no technical reason. White House Market launched two temporary v2 .onions.

WARNING: Yellow Brick market is offline now for over a week. Many users are reporting an exit scam.

Four other major darknet markets remain offline after yesterday's Tor network instability. Give them time to restart their tor instances.

Many .onion sites are coming back online including Dread, White House, Televend, and ToRReZ. A few admins reported that they had to restart their Tor server processes despite the now-healthier network consensus. (consensus-health.torproject.or)

Tor Project is working hard to restore access to v3 .onion hidden services. Most hidden services are hard to access right now. Donate to Tor.
