Privacy-centric Tor Browser struggling to contain a major security issue

Check out our list of the best antivirus services aroundWe've built a list of the best anonymous browsers right nowHere's our choice of the best malware removal software on the marketDespite three separate attempts to rid the network of the malicious servers after alarms were raised by Tor directory authorities, the group still reportedly controls more than 10% of exit relays today.

How Malicious Tor Relays are Exploiting Users in 2020 (Part I)

The 3 sharp drops in figure 1 (marked with 1, 2, 3) depict the events when some of these malicious Tor exits got detected, reported and removed from the network by the Tor directory authorities.

With this new sensor, Blackjack drones can monitor an entire city at once

Blackjack drones already host a number of sophisticated sensors, including full-motion video, infrared marker, laser range finder and a communications relay package, but Cardcounter offers a new capability: the ability to view a city-sized area.

Why I Decided to Run a Tor Relay

Why I Decided to Run a Tor Relay

But then I watched this talk by the articulate, intelligent and passionate Tor Project developer Jacob Appelbaum (if you do nothing else today, watch it).Jacob couldn’t have made a better case for direct action, requesting of the audience:Raise your hand if you think anonymity is something that is good and you think is a fundamental human right that we should all have...

The Execution of the Warrant

The Execution of the Warrant

As though by some predictable ebb and flow of attention to our privacy, we are yet again considering vast, sweeping legislation to kneecap the use of end-to-end encryption (a technology that allows only the participants to read the contents even if a third party is relaying the data).

Privacy 2019: Tor, Meek & The Rise And Fall Of Domain Fronting

This allowed the creation of meek bridge relays on large clouds such as Google App Engine, Amazon CloudFront/EC2 and Microsoft Azure, hiding the actual target hostname behind domains such as , or various static asset CDNs. Domain fronting was nothing short of revolutionary for Tor users in high-risk countries.

What is Tor? A Beginner’s Guide

What is Tor? A Beginner’s Guide

When you use Tor browser over the Tor network, your data is encrypted and the data you send and receive is dispatched through a path of randomly generated relays.

VPN + Tor: Not Necessarily a Net Gain

VPN + Tor: Not Necessarily a Net Gain

Users don't have to trust every Tor relay that they use in order to stay safe with Tor. As long as the right ones aren't compromised, working together, or otherwise malicious, the user stays protected.

VPN vs. Tor: The Basics

VPN vs. Tor: The Basics

When you connect to it, your data gets encrypted and is sent over a network of relays on the Tor network. Just like a VPN, Tor also encrypts your data so your ISP will not see the activities you perform online.

Whonix and Tor Limitations

Whonix and Tor Limitations

For example, it is poor operational security to use the same Whonix-Workstation to check email via Tor, while simultaneously publishing an anonymous document. If a user selects a new entry and exit relay each time the Tor network is used, the attacker can correlate all traffic sent with a probability of (c/n)2.
