Tor needs beef to fight prying eyes

26 sec read

The Tor network has been one of the best ways to surf the internet anonymously… or has it? Whether it was vulnerable in the past or not, it’s definitely vulnerable now and needs more protection to deliver on what it says it can do.

When reports published earlier this month revealed that the U.S. National Security Agency could reverse the protections of Internet anonymity tool Tor, many activists and others who rely on the tool had little reason to panic. Despite the alarmist tone of some headlines, the techniques revealed relied on attacking software such as Web browsers rather than Tor itself. After reviewing the leaked NSA documents, the Tor Project declared “there’s no indication they can break the Tor protocol.”
