Fresh Onions: Best Tor Link List?

onionscan-transitive

It doesn’t surprise me in the least that you dark web explorers are constantly looking for new links.

I used to often use Harry71’s Onion Spider as a go-to link list when I was looking for new and unusual onion sites. Unfortunately, he no longer updates the site (even though the URL is still active).

That being said, have you heard of the site Fresh Onions? It can be found at http://zlal32teyptf4tvi.onion/.

freshonions

Fresh Onions has its fair share of onion links, and like Harry71’s former site, it’s updated frequently. I was going to take a screenshot of the whole site, but on the device I’m currently using, that function was disabled.

Basically, the list of onions can be sorted by URL, Title, how recently it was added, when it was last visited, or when it was last up (i.e. active). At the time of this writing, it lists 4470 onions, and growing.

So you may be wondering – what kinds of sites are on it?? Well, at first glance, I see a lot of tech sites, some markets, a few forums, and some scam sites. Just what I expected!

While I have yet to create my own onion crawler, here’s a short sampling of some of the sites that are listed on Fresh Onions (note – I make no claim as to the authenticity of any of these; if it sounds like a scam, it probably is.):

http://geekrakaz7kioics.onion – Dark Forum (an anonymous hacking forum)

http://answerstedhctbek.onion – Hidden Answers

http://atmskima36v2nqdc.onion – ATM Skimmer for Sale (likely a scam)

http://hbwc3pyawkeixqtk.onion – DeepHouse – Bienvenue sur DeepHouse!

http://sourcel3zg2kzu4k.onion – Sourcery

http://by5cptxw44znwsbn.onion – Index of /

http://onicoyceokzquk4i.onion – .onion searcher

http://kwf4zz4colvmzb42.onion – Ooga Booga

http://4pf5lakpitrmnpnp.onion – Dungeon Masters: Welcome to Pier!

http://tordox5bgdpmnong.onion – couldn’t connect to this one, but it sounds like a doxing site.

http://nsz6gzlqldxhrvex.onion – NEMESIS Ransomware

http://dark666b5l2e3lcu.onion – Dark Host – real TORland hosting with onion address

Anyhow, if you want to check out the full list, visit the Fresh Onions link above. Have fun, dark web explorers, and don’t get scammed (or kidnapped, for that matter)! I kid.

Dark Web Links of the Day Pt. 1

blackmarketammo.png

by Ciphas

I’ve been receiving comments on my profile asking if I could post some links, so I’m more than happy to oblige. One thing I should remind my readers about, though – Tor and its darknet brethren are rife with scams. So if anything sounds too good to be true (triple your bitcoin in 2 seconds!!), then it probably is.

Beware: “Facebook” Phishing Sites on Tor!

fakebook1

I know, I know! I said I was leaving the dark web, but there was a subject I’d been meaning to talk about and never did.  Specifically, there are a ridiculous number of phishing sites on Tor (and on the web in general).

For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, they look almost exactly like a site you would normally use, but are designed to steal your login credentials and such.  Most dark web users seem to be aware of this, but newcomers often fall for the fake sites.

Since Facebook announced its Tor-friendly URL (https://facebookcorewwwi.onion) at the end of 2014, many users likely flocked to the Tor network to try and use it with some degree of anonymity.

During my research on the Tor network, I was using a search engine called VisiTOR, and came across this link: Facebook phishing link.

At least I’m 99.9% sure that’s what it is – please don’t enter any personal information into that page!!!  As I said before, it looks almost exactly like the real one (with some minor differences), but as far as I know, there are no other official Facebook .onion URLs, so I wouldn’t trust it!  (Heck, some people don’t even trust the real one!)  

It’s not uncommon to come across clone sites of many other pages on Tor – the same thing happens with many of the marketplaces, social sites, forums, etc.  This is why so many of them have a message that says: “Make sure you’re using the real [insert site name here].”   Believe it or not, this is why I’ve attempted to memorize the URLs of some of the Tor sites (and succeeded, on occasion).  They sure don’t make it easy, though.  Could you memorize a URL like “mhpcpptjshjgdierfio.onion”?  I understand that this is because onion addresses are usually made of a base32 string of the first 80 bits of the SHA1 hash of the server’s private key, but it’s still tough on us humans. (Yes, that was English.)

I almost fell victim to something like this back in the good ol’ days of AOL (around 1993).  Someone had sent me a fake “AOL InstaKiss” email, which claimed that you had to enter your screen name and password:

INSTAKISS2.png

Being that this was the 90’s, I fell for it and actually did so (because I was a net n00b) but realized my mistake soon after, and immediately changed my login info – so nothing happened.

Anyhow, I basically just wanted to warn Tor users who weren’t aware of this problem.  On the plus side, the real Facebook onion URL is pretty easy to memorize, unlike many of the other Tor sites.  So, in theory, it would be less likely to fall for a phishing attack.

Be careful, and use common sense.  Always verify that a site you’re using is the real one (whether on the clearnet or the dark web), particularly if it’s one that requires login credentials.  And if anything looks suspicious, it probably is!!

 

 

Exploring Darknet Markets (One Pill Makes You Larger)

tumblr_mzk84t6pJ61rttqkgo1_500

DISCLAIMER: This post is for informational purposes only and is not intended to condone illegal activity.  Anything you do on the dark web is at your own risk.

As those who regularly keep up with Tor news know, the original Silk Road marketplace was shut down in 2013. Its successor, Silk Road 2.0, was shut down in 2014.

Obviously, this has barely stopped the darknet market business from booming (in fact, it probably helped).  Currently, there is a market going by the name of Silk Road 3.0.  Perhaps you’ve heard of it:

1445520249956478

Be that as it may, I’ve heard from some sources that this site is a scam (basically trying to capitalize on the Silk Road name), while others have said that they’ve had no problems.  It may depend on the individual vendors.

“I Used to Do Drugs…I Still Do, But I Used to, Too!” – Mitch Hedberg

giphy

So, you may wonder, where else can I get reliable recommendations? Well, let me start off by saying that I’m not the requisite expert in darknet markets, but I do my research.

Someone had recently asked me on another site, “Which is the best darknet market?” I’m not sure if I can really answer that question, but I can compare them.

First of all, most darknet markets accept bitcoin, although some accept other cryptocurrencies as well (Dogecoin, Litecoin, Peercoin, etc.).

Second of all, they offer a variety of products (not just drugs) – although some specialize in products such as psychedelics, stolen credit cards, banned books, etc.

Third of all, different customers will inevitably have better or worse experiences than others on various sites (hey, the same thing happens on Amazon, right?)  This is where customer reviews and word-of-mouth come in extra handy, because you don’t always know whom you can trust…

Shout-Out to Deepdotweb!!

 logoddw

Hey guys!!  Beyond visiting the markets themselves, one of my most reliable sources for information on darknet markets is DeepDotWeb – Surfacing the News from the Deep Web.  You can also visit them at the above onion URL: DeepDotWeb on Tor.

They feature a Darknet Markets List that’s updated pretty frequently, and generally has very accurate information.  

According to them, some of the top markets are these:

Alphabay

AlphaBay-Home-e1440639625779

Valhalla (a.k.a. Silkkitie)

silkkitie1-660x330

Outlaw Market

Outlaw-market-Darknet-Market

Dream Market

Dream-Market-URL-Darknet-Review

Also among their list of trusted markets are:

giphy (1)

Vendor Shops

giphy1

Of note: it is sometimes helpful to read the customer reviews on each of these sites, because often the markets may look trustworthy, and they’re the farthest thing from it.

Scams and Phishing Links

scam-alert-1024x788.png

 

Darknetmarkets o r g / markets also features a list of markets, but this site, according to Beware of Phishing Scams On Clearnet Sites! (darknetmarkets.org) is a list of phishing links that will steal your login credentials for darknet markets. So stay away from that site altogether.

Good ‘Ol Reddit

reddit_DNM

Finally, I would further recommend you check out the subreddits /r/DarkNetMarkets and /r/DarkNetMarketsNoobs.  They tend to give reliable, up-to-date information as well.

There are, of course, quite a few other markets and vendors, too!  In my experience, general word-of-mouth is one way you can .  Or you could just try them out yourself and learn the hard way…

tumblr_nmc8nh0lvQ1r71rxdo1_500.gif

What do you see in the center??

Investigation Underway!!

Of course, I don’t simply want to take everyone else’s word for it – I’m in the process of checking some of these out as well.  That doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll be trying out the individual products (although that may help with the creativity part)…

In the meantime, perhaps you can find the answer(s) to the question, “What were they smoking?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fun with Dark Web Social Networking!!

 

Blackbook

It should come as no surprise that the dark web (and not just Tor) has its fair share of social networks and forums.  Nonetheless, in this post, I’ll be primarily talking about Tor social networks.  (These are sometimes referred to as “shadow social networks.”)

In my experience thus far, I’ve been a member of three different social networks (in the Facebook sense) on the dark web (i.e. Tor, I2P, and Freenet). While I have made some casual friends through them, so far I haven’t had any real deep connections (no pun intended).

I also have explored a number of dark web forums and chat rooms, some of which have featured disturbing content, and others which have seemed relatively mundane. Ironically, even on the clearnet, you’ll find material like this, and occasionally, it’ll be worse than what’s on the dark web (go figure).

Blackbook Value

The first social network I explored is called Blackbook, which can be found here, if you’re really interested: Blackbook – the Facebook of Tor.

Its layout is loosely based on Facebook, although you may immediately notice some differences once you actually access it.  As with Facebook, there are ads on the sidebar, but in the case of Blackbook, most of them are for darknet markets or skimmed credit cards (and that sort of thing).

Also, like the aforementioned social network, you can create a personalized profile, list your interests, join groups, start drama, etc.  Really, the major difference is the content that’s featured on people’s profiles and in some of the discussions.  If the same things were present on Facebook, they would likely create some uproar; would you try to sell coke to your mom on Facebook?  (Well, maybe some would…idk.)

While it’s highly unlikely that someone would be posting fully nude pictures on Facebook and sharing them on the news feed, that’s par for the course on Blackbook.  (Not that I mind much…)  You’ll also tend to meet a different sort of people on this network.

There are a lot of hackers, darknet market vendors, and assassins as well – at least I’ve met a few people who say that they are.  I’d rather not question their authenticity.

3sju4b

Beyond that, though, almost no one uses their real name on Blackbook (and that pretty much goes for the dark web as a whole).  Fake photos are used a lot too – some users have drawings of themselves, while the hackers sometimes use pictures like the V for Vendetta mask, or just something that represents the idea of hacking.

And I’ve even seen some fellow bronies, albeit more on the creepy side of things:

4f0725a88d6bb4e08d009d5f6fffb3c5

As for identity, I’ve used various randomly generated pseudonyms; remember the nonsense word generators I mentioned earlier?  Here they are again, if you ever need them: Soybomb nonsense word generator and Fake Word Generator For Great Made-Up Words.  This one’s good too: SpinXO Username Generator.

I understand how this might be off-putting to some of my friends on the clearnet, but I actually like my Blackbook friends, and have found them to be cool.  I’ve even learned a few things from the hacker groups, believe it or not.  As a matter of fact, I just may share this post with them – although they may find out my true identity…shit.

Guardians of the Galaxy2

Admit it, you were waiting for a Groot joke…well, you’re not getting…

people-aren-amp-039-t-even-talking-about-the-rest-of-the-movie-just-amp-quot-groot-groot-and-groot-amp-quot_o_3674377

No, I was referring to this – one of the more popular social networks called Galaxy2, an Elgg-based site also hosted on the Tor network.  According to The Social Media Alternatives Project, its creator, Lameth, started it in early January 2015.  It’s a “sequel,” so to speak, to the original Galaxy site which shut down sometime in 2014.

06e1df15a17950bc07f2151e34dd5b84

Like the original Galaxy, it offers things like The Wire (microblogging), groups, blogs, polls and pages (not unlike Facebook).  It’s similar to Blackbook in that it’s relatively censorship-free, but as the rules above say, child pornography is not allowed.  Also differentiating it from Blackbook is the fact that commercial trade is forbidden (in other words, you won’t see ads for darknet markets, etc.)

Oddly enough, its design also looks a bit more professional – this may be because there’s a larger team of people working on it, or that it just gets updated more regularly:

79062ac6930893451e5ccef20924417f

Of note: Galaxy2 recently experienced a huge influx of users after another hacking-themed social network (created, oddly enough, using WordPress) shut down.  And judging from the drama on the news feed, some of the longtime Galaxy members were not happy about the newcomers.

What, did you think the dark web was drama-free?  It has people on it!

Bad Forum…Bad Forum Indeed

Just as on the clearnet, the dark web has its fair share of forums.  In a previous post, I had mentioned the highly disturbing forum Scream, Bitch!

A65

Yeah, that one.  They’re not all like that, but you may have to search a bit to find some that aren’t promoting the sick shit.

You may have heard of the “Hell” site before – it’s actually an infamous hacking forum. In this writer’s humble opinion, Hell is one of the less unnerving forums that can be found on Tor, despite the fact that it’s a site for sharing stolen data and hacking advice.  If you really want to visit it, here’s the URL: Hell.

You do realize I’m giving you the URL just so you can say this, right?

raf,750x1000,075,t,101010-01c5ca27c6.u1

I also happened to come across a forum by the name of Suicide Apartment, which, from what I gather, is a closed forum for people who want to commit suicide (or are at least considering it).

suicideapartment

In order to actually log into the forum, however, you need a voucher from an existing member (there are a number of forums like this on the dark web, in fact).  Presumably, this is for privacy reasons.

Well, since these people wanted to commit suicide, I decided I wouldn’t hang around.

maxresdefault

There are, for better or worse, much more disturbing forums than these that I’ve come across, or at least heard about on other people’s pages.

For me, particularly, animal cruelty sites are some of the worst, because I really love animals so much.  Those, and anything in which children are being exploited.  Thankfully (from my perspective), some of these sites are not up anymore, or at least not at the URLs where they were originally found.

But if that’s what you were hoping for, don’t worry, readers! I have much more disturbing content simmering in my “research folder”…

Lost in the Dark Web? Me Too!

0TQk45P

by Secrets of the Dark

I recently read a couple of great posts on Illegally downloaded blog (by author Deku-shrub) regarding the nature of the so-called “deep web/dark web,” etc. – specifically, the ones in question are Internet writings about misunderstandings and Literally the best blog post ever.

In the former, he expresses his frustration over “unashamed use of ambiguous terminology when it comes to describing nebulous memes such as the so called ‘Deep Web’.”  In the latter, he describes how he “created the Wikipedia page for ‘Skunked terms’, a wonderful label…for words that have undergone a marked change from one user to another’ and ‘are likely to be the subject of dispute.'”

As I’ve explored networks like Tor, I2P, and Freenet more, I’ve started to become almost as frustrated with people throwing around such terms loosely (even on the dark web itself!).

It seems that what got the general public (who were previously unaware of the dark web) talking about this sort of thing was the 2013 shutdown of the Silk Road marketplace by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.  Prior to that, in 2011, Gawker published an article called The Underground Website Where You Can Buy Any Drug Imaginable, which created a lot of buzz around the Silk Road, and the Tor network in general:

silk-road-site

While I’m not denying that such things exist (they still do), I think it’s the misinformation that annoys me.  So personally, when I use the term “dark web,” I generally mean networks like Tor, I2P, Freenet, GNUnet, Retroshare, ZeroNet, and OneSwarm.  And when I use the term “deep web,” I generally mean sites that aren’t indexed by standard search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo!, and Ask.com.  As I mentioned in a previous post, Tor has its own search engines as well, such as Ahmia (clearnet URL) and not Evil

As the infographic up top explains, the dark web also includes alternative networks such as SIPRNet, JWICS, and NSAnet, used by the U.S. government to transmit top secret information.

Here are a few screenshots of the networks above:

RetroShare

Not so terrifying, are they?  I don’t claim to be an encyclopedic expert on the dark web (just yet), but I have explored several of these networks (Tor, I2P, and Freenet, specifically), and they aren’t always as scary as the horror stories make them out to be.  In fact, if you had the know-how, you could literally create your own darknet that was only meant to be accessible to a select few people.  That, too, would technically be part of the dark web.

So, then, what about all the “horror videos” like Top 15 TERRIFYING Deep Web FactsHorrifying Deep Web Stories “Why I Quit Hacking”, etc.?  Based on my personal experience, I’d say they contain some truths, some half-truths, and some flat-out lies.

For example, the Top 15 video mentions bitcoin as if it’s this “evil currency” only used for illegal goods.  It is used in many drug and gun sales on darknet markets, but like any currency, it’s not bad in and of itself.  This may seem like common sense, but the reason that bitcoin is used so much on darknet markets is that it’s harder to trace than something like a credit card (but not impossible).

In my personal experience – yes, the dark web does contain some disturbing things, but some of it is merely personal sites made by techies, or sites like Wikileaks, which you can also find on the clearnet.

I realize there are worse things out there, but it’s not hell on earth…or if it is, I haven’t been there yet.

This is what the rest of the dark web looks like.

 

Less Talking, More Linking!!

onionpi

Someone on the Tor network actually said this to me recently when I was describing some interesting .onion websites (without giving any links).  So this time around, I thought I’d post some links from both Tor and Freenet that I discovered in various places.

As I’ve said before, I’m aware that the content on many Tor sites is illegal and/or disturbing, so just to warn you – I haven’t checked out all of these for myself.  As they say, anything that sounds too good to be true probably is.  So as always – visit them at your own risk.  I’ll also include a few Freenet sites, for those who prefer that.  (And I’ll add more screenshots later, when I get a chance.  This was kind of a quick post!)

NOTE: The Freenet sites (freesites) can’t be accessed from your regular browser, unless you’re logged into Freenet already (as with .onion sites).  To access these, download Freenet at Freenet – Overview.  To access the Tor sites, download Tor at Tor Project: Anonymity Online.

Also, I may have shared some of these links in an earlier blog post – my mistake!
