As is often the case when a popular Tor site shuts down or is seized, a new Torum site, called Torum Two dot Zero, has just opened. It can be found at http://torumtokzlufasow.onion/. The founder of the new site goes by the name Z3n_Master.

While it’s brand new and doesn’t have many posts yet, several users have begun to ask questions on it. Like the original, it centers around topics like malware, hacking, carding, and cybersecurity. The subject matter may expand as more users join. At present, the categories of discussion are:

  • General Discussion
  • Malware, Virus, and Ransomware
  • Leaks!
  • Educational & Tutorial
  • Links & Resources
  • Carding
  • Selling, Swops, & Merchants

Unlike the original, Torum 2.0 doesn’t require registration or logins, although it has the option to use an email address when posting (this can include a fictional or temporary one).

It remains to be seen what will happen with the new site, but as with other dark web “startups,” with a good community and accurate information, it should grow into a supportive resource.
