Tor compromised

Earlier this week, the owner of freedom hosting who has not been named was arrested in Ireland and is waiting to be extradited to the USA.


Freedom Hosting hosts about half the sites on Tor, and has been shut down. However, it has been revealed that all Freedom Hosting sites had Spyware on them, and revealed your IP address and such to the host. Now that the hosting has been compromised, the FBI now has all of this data.


This means many pedophiles are going to be arrested soon, and it also means that even Tor is not safe against the USA spying on you.
