Dread is Reddit, something like a dark internet forum, where the most relevant news concerning the activities of darknet is actively discussed. The creator of the resource and the administrator himself hides sweat with such an alias as HugBunter.
Dread is presented to active users of the dark side of the Internet as a popular community center, which has successfully replaced the captured DeepDotWeb, as a new platform, where the market actions of law enforcement and fraud are regularly discussed. All of this gained a lot of popularity back in 2008 when Reddit imposed a ban on various discussions of the darkness market on several communities. In the four months since the launch of Dread, there have been more than 12,000 registered users, and in the six months since the launch of Dread, there have been 15,000 users.
In early September last year, after about ten days of downtime for maintenance, a feature such as the HugBunter switch was activated.
If you take the statistics to date, Dread boasts over 121,000 user records, plus over 93,000 messages, 660,000 comments, 583 active communities, and finally 7 remote/blocked communities.
The nature of the activity.
Around the beginning of May last year, the moderator of Wall Street Market, decided to place its hidden IP address in Dread, causing fraud and confiscation. After all, it has long been no secret that any of the stolen data is to be successfully sold through Dread. The site provides detailed guidelines for the manufacture of illegal drugs. It was at the Drede forum that the information that such a trading platform as Dream Market is closed was heard for the first time. Most of the attacks concerning the denial of service were directed towards Dread and its analogs, which used a vulnerability in the Tor protocol.
