Anonymity Network (Tor) has been compromised by NSA

Many hidden servers of Tor network are disappeared since this Sunday. The Freedom Hosting (which hosting a lot of hidden services servers) founder has been arrested and charged for managing some Porn sites.

The article tell you something about that. This article believed that the server of Freedom Hosting is compromised by FBI with malicious javascript.

However, Cryptocloud find out that the javascript was planted by National Security Agency (NSA).

It is true that the Tor network can be monitored by NSA.

If you are using Tor network, make sure you are using the latest version of Firefox and Tor software as well as to use NoScript (Firefox addon) to block the javascript and flash. Make sure you are not using outdated Firefox such as Tor Browser Bundle.

Or, you can consider to use my project namely NightHawk with the latest version of Firefox and NoScript.

That's all! See you.
