It doesn't appear to be confirmed.
Fleishmann-Pons' work was re-examined and tested by her peers and subsequently was brought into question. She was unable to prove how cold fusion could occur in the conditions that she described (i.e. room temperature.)

Here is to hoping, huh?
In any event, they were able to produce results, albeit none too consistent. Hopefully they can get better.

I recall one or both of the Fleishmann-Pons team were later involved in some other experiments with potentially breakthrough results, but again the controls and data were brought into question.
There is a sub-school of science where experiments are done in very important areas to attract attention to the individuals or their institution. More than one group have received independent funding on the basis of showing results that looked promising and could lead to mega-money.
Faking results isn't common in science, but it's not completely unknown.
I'm skeptical on this one.
