  1. US Government Compromises TOR Network

    In a crackdown that FBI claims to be about hunting down pedophiles, half of the onion sites in the TOR network has been compromised, including the e-mail counterpart of TOR deep web, TORmail.

    The JavaScript zero-day exploit that creates a unique cookie and sends a request to a random server that basically fingerprints your browser in some way, which is probably then correlated somewhere else since the cookie doesn't get deleted. Presumably it reports the victim's IP back to the FBI.

    Logical outcomes from this?

    1. FBI/NSA just shut down the #1 biggest hosting site and #1 most wanted person on Tor

    2. Silkroad is next on their list, being the #2 most wanted (#1 was Child Porn, #2 is drugs)

    3. Bitcoin and all crypto currenecies set to absolutely CRASH as a result since the feds can not completely control this currency as they please.

    welp, game over man, game over.

    (this is why you only run tor via a live OS without persistence run off of a thumbdrive bought with cash the next town over on a public computer, and then DBAN everything)

    And I just heard of all these "bitcoin mining" systems people have developed too. What a pity.

    Glad I only looked at the Deep Web.

    Public PC, away from home, enough said.
