Has the cosmic censorship hypothesis proven to be false or is it still staying as an unproven hypothesis?

It's still controversial. Even though Hawking conceded the bet, it was on technical grounds, not observational evidence. Strictly speaking, cosmic censorship never ascended to the rank of hypothesis, it was always a conjecture.

Is Hawking's paper available on the net?
