Tor attack may have unmasked its users

writes on the BBC news website that the developers of Tor have disclosed that an attack on the network may have unmasked users for five months.

The Tor Project said it believed that the infiltration had been carried out by two university researchers, who claimed at the start of July to have exploited “fundamental flaws” in Tor’s design that allowed them to unmask the so-called dark net’s users.

The Tor project have given full details of the attack and the methods used in a security advisory notice on their website.
