Hidden Clubs: What’s the Password??

The first rule of Hidden Clubs is – you do not talk about Hidden Clubs.

Lo and behold, it’s exactly what it sounds like: a dark web site with numerous exclusive “clubs” that either require an invite or can only be entered with a certain number of “points” on the site.

If you want the link, here it is: http://x7giprgefwfvkeep.onion/

hidden_clubs_edited

To register, you have to use a fake email address, as in “gebryotes@fake.onion.” Once that’s done, go through the “Club Directory” pictured above, and find things that interest you.

Of course, I had to join the MadIRC club, because they’re awesome, right? At the moment, that, and a few other clubs (as you can see in the screenshot) are the ones I’ve joined. So far, I’ve “gained access” by asking for an invite. I imagine this isn’t the case with all of the clubs, if they’re more “secretive.”

If they’re anything similar to sites like Suicide Apartment or the now-defunct dark0de, then they won’t give out invites to just anyone – but you never know.

One of the more interesting clubs I came across was called “Silk Road,” (yeah that), and claimed to be a “new” market, or something along those lines. If you want my opinion, the Silk Road brand is dead, but good luck!

So, what’s the point of all this, then? I suppose that, like much of Tor, it’s intended for privacy and anonymity – or just to sound cool. I’ve noticed that, any time I say that a site is exclusive or members only, people keep asking how to get in. Ironically, once they do get in, the sites have a tendency to look disappointing.

Don’t get me wrong – I think Hidden Clubs is entertaining, but so far I haven’t figured out anything all that secretive about it. Maybe the problem is that I haven’t earned enough points yet.

That being said, I should start my own club on there. Any suggestions as to what to call it?

Must-See Onion Sites? Request from ExpressVPN

The makers of ExpressVPN contacted me via email and asked if I would share a link to their article 9 must-see .onion sites from the depths of the dark web. Very well, there you go! The article also mentions that ExpressVPN has their own Tor hidden service: http://expressobutiolem.onion/ (I should probably do that at some point.)

expressvpn

While I appreciate that they reached out to me, I read the article, and I somewhat disagree that these are the “best” onion sites on the dark web. Why?

Well, first of all, most of them have clearnet mirrors. If you’re looking for sites that are unusual or different from what’s available on the clearnet, then these aren’t necessarily what people have in mind.

For instance, one of the sites they list is http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/ (DuckDuckGo), which is also on the clearnet at https://duckduckgo.com. Another example is http://blockchainbdgpzk.onion/, which is also on the clearnet at https://blockchain.info/.

blockchain-info

There are many other sites like this as well, such as Beneath VT (http://74ypjqjwf6oejmax.onion/), which you can find on the clearnet at http://beneathvt.com.

beneathvt

To give ExpressVPN the benefit of the doubt, I will say that sites like these are a good “introduction” to Tor, because they are relatively harmless and won’t take advantage of you.

You’ve probably been told not to just click on random onion links, because you never know what you’ll come across, and that’s true. I have had the experience of clicking on some unlabeled link, and being horrified at what I “discovered.”

In my opinion, the “must see” onion sites are the puzzle ones (like Red Triangle), or perhaps some of the social or tech-related ones. Of course, that’s the kind of thing I’m into, so it makes sense.

Of course, you could just head “into the jungle” yourself, so to speak, and see what you uncover.

By the way, if anyone wants me to feature their site, feel free to suggest it! I might want some bitcoin in exchange, though. (wink)

Exploring Tor Links Again, Just For You!

Based on the comments I get, I’ve become aware of how much people love to see so-called “dark web links” on here. For that reason, I’ve done a little exploration and found some new ones.

Note to my readers: if you have requests for certain types of links, let me know. I can try to find some, but I can’t guarantee that I’ll come across the ones that you want. Honestly, some of the things that people are looking for (in my experience) just don’t exist.

http://mdn47pmcst65jblo.onion/ – Dark City IRC

dr47oldcaubn7ukf.onion – Level 7 Galaxy

http://gtp5d6nojrgqivle.onion/ – Game Console (requires JavaScript – may not be a good idea to use with Tor)

http://n44ppdgvmnrckhvh.onion/ – apollyon (requires password; might be members-only)

http://s6sykeumpavhsveg.onion/ – IniziCraft (some kind of coding community)

http://tpbom7barowq2c2u.onion/shop/tpb – Каталог – The Pirate Bay

Well OK, there’s my teaser – what other kinds of links do you want?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Give Me Links, Man! L-I-N-K-S!

darkdir_links

When I was on IRC (which I haven’t been for awhile), one of the things that would happen constantly is that people would pop in and ask for onion links all the time. I’m sure that got annoying.

So, because this is such a popular request, I’m going to give you some right now. How’s that? Just be careful – I’m serious.

http://sextzym44iqnjt6v.onion/ – WE are Technical Shadow

http://hackerc6bovxwqmi.onion/ – Hacker for Hire

http://creepymhpgibsewr.onion/ – Creepy

http://eoro24hiqmf6ig5u.onion/ – Secret Society

Alright – is that enough to get you started? Have fun, and perhaps I’ll post more links later on, if I come across them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t Use the Hidden Wiki – Use These!

thehiddenwikicrop

I’ve noticed that quite a few people recommend The Hidden Wiki as a “starting point” for using Tor.

While it does have some good general information about Tor (and darknets in general), most of the links that it features are scams – at least the financial ones, or anything that you would have to pay money to use. Though I don’t suggest using it, I’ll link to it anyway, just so you can see what I mean: http://zqktlwi4fecvo6ri.onion

This probably goes without saying for people who have been using Tor for a reasonable amount of time, but for those new to the dark web, it seems like a lure to ensnare people unfamiliar with it.

Granted, some of the links are innocuous – you’ll see things like the search engines, and some of the “library sites” like the Imperial Library of Trantor. On the other hand, there are quite a few sites that promise things like “bitcoin doubling,” “free drugs,” etc. – these are all scams.

So…if you don’t use the Hidden Wiki, what should you use?

Well, as I’d mentioned in several earlier posts, there are a few Tor search engines that are good:

notevil-chat

Besides these search engines, there are other link lists you can find, one of which I also mentioned in my earlier post, Fresh Onions: Best Tor Link List?:

welcometodarkweblinks

Of course, these sites, too, may have scam links on them, but they’re at least mixed in with other things. And for whatever reason, I also find them to be more interesting than the Hidden Wiki – whether that’s because they have better links, or just look creepier,  I can’t say. Nevertheless, I have found a lot of the interesting sites I discuss on these alternate link sites and search engines.

Besides these, if you’re just looking for a group of people on the clearnet who hunt down onion links like you do, I’d suggest the subreddit /r/onions: Things That Make You Cry. They’re a pretty cool group of folks.

As for me, I’ll make an effort to include more onion sites in some of my future posts. Have fun checking out some of the ones I’ve shared here, in the meantime!

 

 

A Few Pseudo-Random Onion Links

randomnumbers

I’ve been told repeatedly that there is no such thing as “true” randomness, because everything has some kind of pattern to it.

That aside, I’ve been trying to constantly come up with onion links to share, and thought that perhaps I could do this by using the onion list at All Onion Services. What I’m going to do is hit the “Random” button a few times, and then list some of the links that come up.

Unfortunately, I can’t guarantee that there will be anything on these links, but it’s worth a shot. If there isn’t anything on the page, either it’s down, it’s unreachable, or no one has built a site at that particular address yet.

WARNING: Visit these at your own risk. I haven’t checked them all out personally.

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.
