Two years ago, Joel Friedman submitted a paper purporting to prove the Hanna Neumann Conjecture, which eventually turned out to contain a fatal bug and was withdrawn.

Has this attempt been verified by anyone or is still under review?

I don't think that this latest round has been independently verified. Igor Mineyev has also announced a solution. See http://www.math.uiuc.edu/~mineyev/math/
