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. https://darknetlive.com/post/hugbunter-posted-an-update-about-dread-availability/
Joker's Stash is shutting down. Their front servers were seized recently, but the site remained online.

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. #tinfoil
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. (https://consensus-health.torproject.org)
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. https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/core/tor/-/issues/40237
We monitor the darknet (Tor hidden services) for interesting news.
