Hugbunter’s Dread Forum Is Back Online Following a Glitch


Paris: The administrator of Dread opened the forum back up for users after adding measures to prevent bots, automated spam, and vote manipulation on comments and posts. The forum will receive another update at some point within the next week that will bring additional features and stability to the platform, HugBunter said. More than a week ago, HugBunter put Dread into maintenance mode to push an update that would “provide increased stability as the platform” and “reduce a whole lot of spam and phishing.” Among other things, the update was designed to fix the constant spam that had flooded the front-page and popular sub dreads. According to the signed message from HugBunter, the update would have taken less than a day.

After the Dread staff member “Paris” had not heard from HugBunter in three days, they posted a notice on the front-page of Dread about the activation of HugBunter deadman switch. The switch, according to a post from Paris on the dark web forum Envoy, was only triggered by a lack of communication from HugBunter and not something more serious. Paris wrote that if HugBunter failed to return within one week of the announcement, they would release the Dread source code.

HugBunter showed up only a few days after Paris’ message. He said that he had finished implementing a new captcha that would put an end to automated account registration and added global auto-mod functionality for additional spam control. Users will immediately spot the captcha change as well as the lack of gibberish comments cluttering every post. The complete message is above the paragraph.
