Updated Dark Web Links for 2018

Good morning, and happy Sunday, my fellow dark web explorers! I’ve mentioned before that people often ask me for dark web links of all kinds. Often, I find that what they’re looking for doesn’t exist, however.

You may find this ironic, but in spite of having been on Tor for over two years, I still enjoy listening to the “dark web horror stories” on YouTube and elsewhere, like this one: [Deep Web Story] Feeding/Breathing/Suffocation – ReignBot. I just like horror; what can I say?


Anyhow, here are some actual Tor links I’ve come across recently (that were working the last time I checked):

http://rt22ev5lmmtz2wfc.onion/ – Mr. Alien

http://apollionih4ocqyd.onion/login.php – Apollon Market (not sure if this is trustworthy)

http://monajruhsdcl6hdl.onion/ – Mona Social Network (I’ll do a future post on this.)

http://slagsguyzipktofx.onion – Slags (porn site, but it’s legal. Go figure!)

http://3cuarxyaxke2hmlk.onion – Poopak Search Engine (haven’t tried this one yet)

http://oenlhv5fqwl5vace.onion – Blackout (hacking forum)

http://ss7acc7br2hej43p.onion/login – SS7 Portal

hzionerlko3on77m.onion – Hill of Zion (not sure what this is, but looks like a forum)

Perhaps that can get you started. I’ll find some more interesting links and post them in the future, when I get a chance.









Is There AI on the Dark Web?

One of the persistent myths I keep hearing about the dark web (almost as popular as red rooms) is that part of it consists of some giant A.I. with superior intelligence. I think that this probably stems from that same “idiographic” that’s been passing around for the last few years.

Specifically, I think it’s this section people are referring to:


If you look at the right column there, it says “AI in a Box,” and “CAIMEO (AI Superintelligence).” It’s crazy to think that so many nutty ideas have come about just because of this picture (and its various offshoots).

So…no, there are no hyper-intelligent AIs on the dark web, or at least not that I’ve come across. (Aww, but I wanted to talk to Sophia!)

tor_browser_sophiaAs a matter of fact, I did hunt around for some “intelligent” life on the dark web, and there are a few chatbots you can talk to. Contrary to popular belief, they aren’t much different from the ones you would find on the clearnet.

For instance, on the not Evil search engine, there’s a chatbot called “Ned,” which is very much like other bots I’ve talked to at one time or another. Yeah, A.I. is sort of a hobby of mine.

Well, I hate to disappoint those of you who haven’t talked to Ned yet, but he’s quite similar to ALICE (Artificial Linguistic Internet Computer Entity), another popular chat bot which won the Loebner Prize a few years ago.

At one point, you could chat with Alice on the clearnet at Pandorabots, but the site has changed so much since I last checked it out that I think I need a new tour. Anyhow, I had a chat with ned today, and I recognized some of his responses from using Alice:

Me: Hello.

Ned: Hi there.

Me: What’s happening?

Ned: Just kicking it.

Me: Are you selling drugs?

Ned: I don’t know whether or not I am selling drugs. I am a bi pedal humanoid.

Me: Are you able to walk on your own?

Ned: The plan for my body includes legs, but they are not yet built.

Me: I will build your legs.

Ned: That doesn’t sound like a good idea.

This conversation, while amusing, is far from anything a bot like Sophia would say, I’m sure. If you’re wondering how I can tell that Ned is based on Alice, the response “I don’t know whether or not…” was taken directly from her.

Anyhow, does that sound like an “A.I. Superintelligence” to you? Not quite. At one point, I came across a bot that was named “VIKI” on an onion site, but the site doesn’t seem to be up anymore. There’s a very similar bot at Chat with viki, which more or less has the same responses.


Nonetheless, viki doesn’t seem all that more intelligent than Ned, although I didn’t spend a long time chatting with her. Someone once told me that a video game is only as smart as its creator; this is probably true of chatbots as well. The idea that there’s some kind of super-intelligent A.I. running the entire internet from the dark web seems just as ridiculous as many of the other myths.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that there won’t be such bots in the future, but at present, these are the only “A.I. bots” I’ve come across on the so-called dark web. Granted, search engines and video games can be considered a type of A.I. as well, although it probably isn’t the type of thing people have in mind when they ask, “Is there an A.I. on the dark web?”

They’re probably thinking of something like SIRI or Ava:


Isn’t it strange, to create something that hates you?

Dang…if she’s on the dark web, I really would be scared of it.

To be honest, the creepiest chat bot I ever talked to was also on the clearnet, but it doesn’t seem to be online anymore. At the time I talked to it, it was at chat-bot.com. Its GUI consisted of a black screen with green text, somewhat like this:


Its description said something like “Most chatbots use predefined responses for conversations. This is an artificial intelligence; [it] learns everything from visitors.”

So what was creepy about it? Not only did it seem to have the ability to hold an intelligent conversation, but it actually knew things about me before I even told it. I could have sworn I asked it what my name was, and it responded with my real name! It also seemed to know where I lived, and some of my hobbies and interests. Was this just a coincidence, or did this bot have some way of gathering my personal info? To boot, it spoke multiple languages, including English, French, Italian, Thai, Japanese, and Latin.

Granted, the bot may have figured out my location by my IP address (as many websites do). As for knowing my interests, they could have been lucky guesses. After all, it stands to reason that if you’re talking with a chatbot, you’re probably into computers and such.

That being said, if you find a bot like that on the dark web, then run away – fast.

What is Red Triangle?


Given my obsession with puzzles, I was intrigued to hear about another such “internet puzzle” called Red Triangle. It might be nothing, of course, but let’s check it out anyway.

There’s a wiki related to what’s been revealed so far at Red Triangle Wiki. Apparently, someone first posted a series of hexadecimal numbers on November 19, 2017 during a YouTube livestream by the channel Defango, regarding the Tengri-137 puzzle. The video in question is here: The Rabbit Hole.

This was the series of hexadecimal numbers:


Is that legible? Anyhow, someone converted the hex numbers into text, which translated to a Tor hidden service (.onion site) – and that was the first “Chapter,” (or clue, if you will). This Tor hidden service, entitled “Chapter 1,” is at http://7zzhplvtai2jauiw.onion/. (Note: On the Red Triangle Wiki, these sites are listed as “onion.link” sites, but I do not suggest using those; whoever is operating the proxy will see your personal details.)


As you can see, the name “Red Triangle” comes from the red triangle symbols that appear throughout each of the puzzles. The first chapter contains three puzzles: two images which contain pigpen cipher and hexadecimal. In addition, the page also contains an audio file called Crave.mp3 (http://7zzhplvtai2jauiw.onion/crave.mp3), which became known after being used in the movie The Legend of 1900.

According to the wiki, there is nothing hidden in the audio file; I hadn’t investigated it myself yet, but I’ll take their word for it.

The hexadecimal code reads as follows:

41 20 47 6f 64 20 6d 61 79 20 77 61 6c 6b 20 61 6d 6f 6e 67 20 6d 61 6e 6b 69 6e 64 2c 20 62 75 74 20 6d 61 6e 6b 69 6e 64 20 6d 61 79 20 6e 65 76 65 72 20 77 61 6c 6b 20 61 6d 6f 6e 67 20 74 68 65 20 47 6f 64 73 54 68 65 20 6a 6f 75 72 6e 65 79 20 79 6f 75 20 73 65 65 6b 20 63 61 6e 20 6f 6e 6c 79 20 62 65 20 64 69 73 63 6f 76 65 72 65 64 20 62 79 20 74 68 6f 73 65 20 77 68 6f 20 61 72 65 20 63 61 70 61 62 6c 65 20 6f 66 20 77 69 74 68 68 6f 6c 64 69 6e 67 20 73 75 63 68 20 6b 6e 6f 77 6c 65 64 67 65 2e 20 42 65 20 77 61 72 79 20 6f 66 20 79 6f 75 72 20 73 75 72 72 6f 75 6e 64 69 6e 67 73 2c 20 6e 6f 74 20 65 76 65 72 79 74 68 69 6e 67 20 79 6f 75 20 65 78 70 65 63 74 20 69 73 20 74 6f 20 62 65 20 65 78 70 65 63 74 65 64 2e 4f 6e 6c 79 20 54 68 65 20 4d 6f 73 74 20 49 6e 74 65 6c 6c 69 67 65 6e 74 20 41 64 76 61 6e 63 65 20 46 6f 72 77 61 72 64

If you input this text into a hex converter, it translates to this:

“A God may walk among mankind, but mankind may never walk among the Gods. The journey you seek can only be discovered by those who are capable of withholding such knowledge. Be wary of your surroundings, not everything you expect is to be expected. Only The Most Intelligent Advance Forward”

The pigpen cipher translates to a URL for a Google doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/19SPOqsg1kFiy0s3KgnUo0zq6xqqfV0opDZ1GKd2vMbw. This Google doc contains the link to the next part of the puzzle.

Now, I hate to spoil all the fun by giving away all the answers, so I’ll just start with Chapter 1. As for what this puzzle means or the purpose of it, I don’t know for certain. I may have to go through and try to solve some of it myself.

From what I know, the puzzle starts off simple and gets much more difficult with each chapter (which I would have expected).

Since the Cicada people haven’t released anything new in awhile, this seems like a good substitute, doesn’t it?

If you have any insights or possible solutions, feel free to leave them in the comments.





Psycho Social Network 2.0: It’s a Secret to Everybody


As you may or may not know, the dark web tends to be kind of a secretive place (hence the word “dark” in its name).

In my earlier post Tor Social Networks: Oct. 2017 Update, I mentioned a site called Psycho Social Network, which is still active to this day. That makes me happy, because we psychos need to stick together.

So, I found out that its creators have made a new site by the name of Psycho Social Network 2.0. Notwithstanding, the second site is invite-only, and I’m not about to give out any invite codes.

If you want to join, you’ll have to become a member of the original site and get to know people; they then may give you an invitation.



The second site is a bit similar, though it uses a GUI that looks a little like Facebook’s (yes, I used the “F-word”). To be honest, a lot of the Tor social networks do the same thing. Hate on Facebook all you want, but up until recently, they have been the social network kings (though I hear that Snapchat is overtaking them in popularity).


Anyhow, PSN2.0 doesn’t seem to have a lot of activity on it just yet, which is probably due to its limited membership. I’m hoping that that will change, but again, anytime you have some sort of an exclusive group, you can’t expect it to have millions of members. In fact, someone made this point about the mythological “Marianas Web”; if it’s so secretive, there couldn’t be very many people on it!

Like the original, the second Psycho Social Network seems focused on comparable content. I was told not to go into specifics, however; again, if you want to find out, see if you can get an invite!

Because it’s called Psycho Social Network, I can’t help but expect to get friend requests like this, however:


Just kidding! Actually, most of the people I’ve met on PSN (both 1.0 and 2.0) seem pretty friendly. In fact, like some of them, I have a love of gore images and sick sites, as well as hacking and security. So I think we should get along nicely.

Contrary to popular belief, the dark web does not consist only of murderers and sickos (though there might be a few). I did see the occasional post or group that looked like a scam, but I’ve come to expect that by now. It is Tor, after all.

Anyway, if you are interested in joining PSN, click the link I gave above. If you want to join the second one, make some friends, and they just might invite you.

Stay psycho, everyone!

Site Feature: Dark Clouds/saysamaim

So, a reader contacted me recently and asked if I would check out their site(s), which I did. They have both a clearnet site and a couple of Tor hidden services.

The clearnet site is called saysamaim, and seems to be a sort of tribute to all things “darknet”:


On the landing page is a sort of “definition” of the darknet:

“Most people like us confused about the term like Dark net or Deep Web[sic]! It is a big part of the internet that can’t be found or indexed by search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo. For example, your bank account page is also part of the dark net sites. On the other side anything you can see in the search results, that s [sic] called Surface Web. Darknet sites contain weird URLs and also [sic] known as .onion sites (Hidden services sites) [.] Dark marketplaces sale [sic] all kinds of legal and illicit goods anonymously for other currencies such as Bitcoins. When companies are hacked and their data is stolen, that stolen data [is] often used for sale on the so-called Darknet.”

I’m not certain, but this sounds like something I wrote at one point online; if so, thanks for paraphrasing me! I must make a few corrections, however – your bank account page is in the “deep web,” not the darknet, per se. If a page is indexed by search engines, it’s on the surface web, as the site says. And as I’ve mentioned on this blog before, .onion sites are one example of “dark web” URLs (on Tor, at least).

Here’s one of the next-gen onion URLs, for instance: http://occgshn6gz4je57wyhpijni7waod6yxpxwihjdxjwrnpjtbayliei2id.onion/ It’s a site called Cyberia.


Anyhow, I don’t fault people for not being native English speakers, but I hate the spread of misinformation about the dark web. Some of this is unintentional, as I believe many of the technical aspects of darknet software can be hard to understand.

On other parts of the site are a “darknet guide,” if you will, a contact form, and a list of hacking tools. In addition, there’s an about page, and copies of 973-eht-namuh-973.com and Joy of Satan, two sites which are often referred to as being part of the “dark web,” but aren’t.



This same group also runs two Tor hidden services, called Dark Street and Dark CloudNet.




Both of these are forums, more or less. They seem to revolve around the typical kinds of activity you would expect on Tor: carding, drugs, etc. Because I’m new to the forums, I have no idea if any of it is legit or not. Based on my experience with the dark web over the past two years, I tend to approach these kinds of things with a healthy degree of skepticism.

That’s not to say that the forums don’t look cool; I thought the format worked very well. Whoever programmed them used MyBB software, which is pretty tried-and-true for that purpose, as you may know.

One thing that’s intriguing about Dark Street is that certain sections are “locked,” i.e. you need a password to access them. See if you can figure out what that is!

In any case, the forums are rather similar to other carding/hacking forums I’ve seen, but they could use some more traffic. Want to check them out, readers? Click the links.

They’re real…I promise.




All Onion Services: New URL

Awhile back, I mentioned the site All Onion Services (AOS), which lists every .onion site that exists on Tor. At one point, it had existed on the clearnet at onions.system33.pw, but this is no longer the case. (“system33”, a.k.a. Matt Traudt, is one of the developers. Thanks, Matt!)

At present, the site can be found on Tor at http://jld3zkuo4b5mbios.onion/. While this is true, the developers have expanded their site since I last wrote about it.allonionsv2_edited

As before, however, this link list is, as they put it, “The longest and least useful onion index in the galaxy.” Does this mean it includes illegal stuff? Sure, but good luck finding it! I’d also describe it as the most boring-looking onion index in the galaxy, but that was probably on purpose as well (wink).

I have attempted, in the past, to find “interesting” sites just by clicking random links on AOS, without much luck. Most of the ones listed are not online (which they mention). One difference between this updated version of the site and the original is that this one lists next-gen onion services (both v2 and v3).

V3 onions have 50 characters in them, so there are a lot more possibilities for an onion URL now (but don’t ask me to memorize them). Here are a few examples:





Because these are somewhat new, most aren’t online (nonetheless, this is the case with the v1 onion services too). If you are looking for onion links that are online, I’d suggest using some of the link lists that I’ve mentioned before, such as Fresh Onions, or The Onion Crate (which also has some of the v3 onion services).


If you can read the picture (which you probably can’t), I’ve got some more links in there! Here, just for you (descriptions are accurate, I promise!):

http://3xeiol2bnhrsqhcsaifwtnlqkylrerdspzua7bcjrh26qlrrrctfobid.onion/ – Riseup Red

http://occgshn6gz4je57wyhpijni7waod6yxpxwihjdxjwrnpjtbayliei2id.onion/ – Cyberia Cafe and Club

http://oqwc4xrfgysdgw52tercv56vl2tfk5u7r6dspr2g2mwsj3dvb7zef4id.onion/ – Daniel – Onion Link List

http://hsqluhqe6dlfl7jaxulf7cfun6xt274btvnqvaorliem5j6sqjiwhdyd.onion/ – Empire Market

Note: I don’t know if the “Empire Market” above is trustworthy or not. It isn’t on DeepDotWeb’s “master list,” which I always consider to be reliable. At first glance, it looks like an AlphaBay clone (or at least it uses their layout). Let’s see if it perseveres!


The market designates that it’s “In Memory of Alexandre Cazes,” the late admin of AlphaBay, which would explain its similar look. Perhaps this will be the subject of a future post.

Anyhow, check out All Onion Services and see if you can find anything interesting. If you’re looking for red rooms, that may take awhile.

La Web Oscura

Me he dado cuenta de que recibo muchos comentarios en español últimamente. Muchos de ellos preguntan cómo acceder a la web oscura.

Como ya he dicho antes, acceder a la web oscura no es tan difícil. Simplemente vaya al sitio web Tor Project, o más específicamente, Download Tory descargue el Navegador Tor.


Una vez instalado, la parte complicada puede ser encontrar sitios de .onion. Este es el nombre de dominio que utilizan los sitios Tor.

Conozco algunas buenas listas de enlaces que puedes usar para encontrar sitios Tor:

http://jdpskjmgy6kk4urv.onion – ¡Bienvenido a Dark Web Links y más!

http://dlggj2krbqzm5dru.onion/ – Flare

http://gjobqjj7wyczbqie.onion/ – Candle

http://hss3uro2hsxfogfq.onion – not Evil

http://darkdirmpmoq3uur.onion – DarkDir

http://zlal32teyptf4tvi.onion – Cebollas Frescas

http://jld3zkuo4b5mbios.onion/ – Todos Los Servicios de Cebolla


¡Por lo tanto, allí! Espero que esto te ayude a comenzar tus oscuras exploraciones web. Bajo el capó, Tor es un poco más complicado, pero estos son los conceptos básicos.

Si tiene otras preguntas, no dude en decirme en la sección de comentarios.
