Reading a bit about the decipherment of ancient scripts gave me the impression that those scripts which remain mostly undeciphered as of today have such a small and restricted corpus (I'm thinking of Linear A and the Indus script) that decipherment seams pretty hopeless unless some kind of archeological miracle occurs.

Therefore, I'm wondering whether there are languages where decipherment is generally believed to be feasible and where there are ongoing efforts on the decipherment which are considered prospective by a large part of the experts.
