Russia offers over $100,000 to de-anonymize Tor

<< < (2/2)

Do you think this is like the truecrypt debacle?  If people are trying to break it, just by the fact that there is a bounty- your trust in it is less.  So you start to trust less in Tor and more in other ways of being anonymous.

I really don't know.

It could all just be an elaborate psy-op to drive people away from Tor.

If I were doing anything that really mattered, I'd keep it off the net as much as possible. There are topics that I only discuss with people in person.

I thought the NSA already had backdoors/vulnerabilities in Tor. Wasn't something like that mentioned in another thread here on DC?

I'm not sure. The NSA has funded Tor. Whether or not they have backdoors, I don't know.

They can track people with significant effort, as far as I understand. But the effort is enough to make them do it in a targeted manner.
