Tor Social Network Update: Galaxy3

For those of you who were sad that Galaxy2 had disappeared, there is a new social network by the name of Galaxy3 at http://22dvf4xgaqa672b4.onion. There is also what appears to be a scam clone site at http://uwv7wslui5f4ukff.onion/, so I would avoid using that one if I were you.


I’m sure many of the members of the previous social network are happy about this, although I was a little hesitant to join at first, given that there are so many clone sites (like the one above) out there.

So, I just joined about a week ago, and by all accounts, this site seems to be legit. No, really, it is!


I recognize quite a few of the same folks who were on Galaxy2, which is a good indicator that it is the real thing.

Anyhow, Galaxy3 is quite similar: like its predecessors, it has a feature called “The Wire,” which is basically a news feed (like on Facebook or Twitter). And yes, anything you post to The Wire is public, so for newcomers – don’t post it if you don’t want others to see it!

What surprises me about it is that many of the Wire posts are the same types of things that people would say on Facebook, Tumblr, or other clearnet social media sites. I think I’ve addressed this on my earlier “dark web social network” posts.

It could be something as simple as, “Hey, what’s going on everybody?” Or I have noticed some people who appear to be trying to promote businesses and such. But as I said, the dark web has increased my level of paranoia tenfold; I tend to view anyone who is selling something with a degree of skepticism.

One other thing that I notice frequently is that people don’t shy away from posting about controversial topics here (and that goes for the dark web as a whole, not just Tor). Many of the social networks I’ve been a part of on Tor (and elsewhere) have included such things as gore, self-harm, drug use, and…um…unusual fetishes. Not that you can’t find that on the clearnet:


If only they knew that my fetish was to collect Precious Moments dolls and dress them in leather outfits…

In all seriousness, vaguely remember someone asking who was into scat play, for example – which I’m sure you could find on the clearnet as well, if that’s what you’re into, but again, the keyword is “anonymity.”

Like your popular social media sites on the clearnet (Twitter, Tumblr, etc.), Galaxy3 also has a blog feature, which works quite similarly. All you do is click on the “Blogs” tab, and you’ll see a feed with the latest blog posts. From there, you can also add your own (well, yah, I could’ve told you that).


But again, what’s the difference between these blogs and the ones that you would find on the clearnet? Well, I noticed a lot of paranoid conspiracy theory stuff on there, plus there was some guy asking about the aforementioned kinky sex acts. See? The dark web’s not all “bad” – it has kinky sex!!


Come to the dark web – we are kinky.

All in all, if you’re already interested in the dark web and have not checked out any of these social networks yet, Galaxy3 is one that I recommend. The people are pretty cool, and there aren’t any convoluted instructions for becoming a member.

Questions? Feel free to ask.







A Few Pseudo-Random Onion Links


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.















Tell me in the comments if you found anything interesting. If not, maybe I’ll try this again!


Dark Web Links: New Tor Search Engine!

In some of my past posts, I’ve mentioned that there are a few search engines on Tor that you can use to find .onion links. These vary greatly in quality, but the main search engine that people seem to use is called “not Evil”: http://hss3uro2hsxfogfq.onion – in previous posts, I’ve referred to it as the “Google of Tor.”


Beyond not Evil, there’s also Candle, Ahmia, TORCH, and (of course) Grams. In a much earlier post, I interviewed the creator of Candle: A Chat With Jobi – Creator of Candle Search Engine.

One of the differences with Candle is that it gets far fewer results – however, Jobi stated in the interview that he focused on getting more accurate results, rather than the largest number. TORCH gets a reasonable number of results, but in my experience, they aren’t always accurate.


Ahmia, on the other hand, gets results on its search engine results page (SERP) that are usually quite accurate, but like Candle, it doesn’t return a large number. One of the things I like about Ahmia is that if the results include something like CP, you can report it and they’ll exclude it from future searches. The same goes for not Evil.


Where is the Darkest Search?

So what other search engines exist? Well, one of the link sites I like, called Welcome to Dark Web Links and More, added a search engine to their features. While it doesn’t get as many results as not Evil does, it’s interesting to compare the two and see if they come up with anything different.


The actual search engine is located at http://bznjtqphs2lp4xdd.onion, and seems to index onion sites differently than the other search engines, although I couldn’t tell you exactly how the algorithms work. If anyone has a link to a repository for this search engine, I would be curious to find out some more!

One difference I’ve noticed between the WTDWLAM search engine and others is that it has an option called “View This Link with Proxy Redirection For Added Security.” Given that I don’t always trust proxies, because you don’t know who’s spying on your traffic, I hesitate to use this one. Plus, it’s Tor, for God’s sake – why would you need extra security?


Read this WIRED article for more info: Proxy Services Are Not Safe. Try These Alternatives.

Anyhow, I did a few searches with the WTDWLAM search engine, and got quite a few results, although they weren’t always accurate, but that’s to be expected. If you search for the string “red room,” you get 567 results! Are there really 567 red rooms? (Well…no.)

This might be a fun experiment to play around with, and see what mysterious sites you can find. Hint: they probably won’t be much different than the ones you’ve found before.

On the other hand, if you do find anything cool, let me know in the comments!

(Just don’t spam me, OK? Or spam me. I don’t really care.)


Darkfox: Access the Dark Web with Ease!


NOTE: Darkfox will not help you access .clos, .rdos, .lll, or .loky domains. Those don’t exist!! It will help you access .onion, .I2P, and URIs.

by Ciphas

This may sound like an infomercial, but I swear it’s not.

Those of you who use darknets, in particular Tor, I2P, and Freenet, might have noticed that it can sometimes be inconvenient to have to run each one in a separate browser, or at least have to launch the programs separately.

Well, I found a program that makes it simpler to connect to any of these three networks with a simple command: it’s called Darkfox Launcher.

Its advantage is that it lets you access Tor, I2P, or Freenet without having to change your configurations every time. Plus, it’s very simple to use.

The GitHub page goes into a little more detail, but one of the most important questions it answers is: “How does Darkfox Launcher work?”

Here’s the answer: “Darkfox Launcher works by first changing the default profile of the Firefox Portable software and with that, changing the default network configuration. Once this phase is done, Darkfox will proceed by launching the Darknet proxy software to make the connection to the Darknet chosen by the user. When completed, Firefox Portable will boot to the default startpage of that specific Darknet.”

Darkfox is also a convenient way of quickly accessing one of these networks if, say, you need to contact someone through the network and don’t want to go through the process of installing, for example, I2P.

Included in its software package are these things: Firefox Portable Edition, and the proxy software from the Tor Project, the Invisible Internet Project (I2P), and the Freenet Project. If you’re unfamiliar with each of these, it might help to check them out individually first!

So what’s my opinion? I’ve been using it for a little while now, and while it does have a few bugs, I love it. (Besides, what software doesn’t have bugs, especially in the early stages?)

And you may have noticed that, since it’s on GitHub, Darkfox Launcher is also open source. To that end, if you want to fork it and contribute to the code, feel free.

Now, its downside is that it isn’t as secure as the actual Tor browser. So, if you’re doing some kind of hardcore whistleblowing, or engaging in illicit activities, I don’t recommend Darkfox for you. It’s still a work-in-progress, though, so future versions will probably have improved security features.

On a side note, this may just be nostalgia, but its UI reminds me of both the DOS command prompt and the Bash Unix shell. *Nerding out*

While it may not be about bells and whistles, I think Darkfox Launcher accomplishes its purpose well. For more information about it, check out the Darkfox Read Me:

If that’s not enough, take a look at its source code here:


Who knows? Perhaps in the future, it will have the ability to launch Tor and do your taxes.

Less Talking, More Linking!!


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!
