Publisher's Description

Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

The Tor network is a group of volunteer-operated servers that allows people to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Tor's users employ this network by connecting through a series of virtual tunnels rather than making a direct connection, thus allowing both organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy. Along the same line, Tor is an effective censorship circumvention tool, allowing its users to reach otherwise blocked destinations or content. Tor can also be used as a building block for software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features.

I've used tor browser for about a month and been pretty satisfied. But it does not protect the network from traffic analysis. That's exactly why I've decided to subscribe for a vpn service. But I've faced with a problem consisting in the necessiity to pay for a decent service. According to many reviews, there is no reliable free vpns (https://www.bestvpnratin...n-providers-make-profit). Have you ever use such services for free? Are they so worthless as declared?

Tor is not safe and secure at all. It started as a Government project developed for the Navy. Government monitors everything on Tor. I would suggest you to use Hide My IP VPN instead, safe service and with a low cost also...

Tor is still safe to use as long as those using it don't get lazy or use old, buggy software. Tho if you're doing illegal stuff anywhere online you're taking risks.

For those who want to give it a Go. Tread "very" Carefully.

Well said @Uriel

It's simple. If you want to dabble with this project. Don't get up
to any mischief. Hundreds, even thousands of the IP's used are listed
on Honeypot & Anti-Spam sites. If you don't understand what I've just
said, Leave well Alone. Still gets 5* tho..... lol

@JKooks: That article is only partially true and aimed at those who don't understand how the onion network works. For example, there is no exit node if one stayed within the onion network where the URL address ends with ".onion".. And those who want more security should download the Linux distro named "TAILS" anyway. It's completely open source and the fingerprint isn't going to match your usual unsecured operating system. Heck, you can even run it off of a live CD or a thumb drive making it easy to conceal from the police. And for those who may still be paranoid about their activities should search for the term "wardriving" and learn how to protect yourself at your end even further

As for this update, it probably has something to do with the FBI recently injecting spyware into the onion servers of a convicted paedophile. Those who visit these servers can become infected if their TOR Bundle hasn't been updated and still is running on Firefox 17. Those who have Firefox 17 can become infected through iframes and malicious java script so it's a good idea to update your TOR bundle.

Music4Ever:

Columbian drug lords use phone lines and iPads to conduct business but no one wants to ban those technologies. Just putting it into perspective. We live in an age where privacy is a fleeting commodity and political correctness is the new racism.

TOR helps balance the scales.

But then again, I'm sure you already knew this given your response showing both sides.

Cheers.

FIVE stars.

Tor is a response to government intrusion into our privacy, plain and simple. And no matter what they do, we are always ahead of them in terms of technology, and we always will be. The people who work for government are completely retarded, go get your drivers licence renewed and you'll see what I mean.

They are pushing us to make an entirely anonymous web, all they have to do it stop pushing and we'd probably stop making it. But since they are too retarded to stop, we have no choice but to continue.

A recent news report on BBC which I can't find showed TOR is being used by the depraved among us to access child abuse etc. Though these are in the minority those hosting TOR need to be aware of at least in the UK indecent material just passing though their servers can implicate them despite being innocent themselves & resulted in this case of PC gear being seized.

The flip side is recently I visited a large Caribbean island where internet restrictions are draconian & totally suppresses residents being able to access information that may be deemed to be against the state (basic freedom of information) & for these people who can actually own PC’s proxy servers are a lifeline to factual information although the restrictions I saw are so tight the likes of TOR are no longer that helpful.

I've dedicated one of my servers for TOR (with a modified Tor server), now I can log the activity, and take a closer look.

I'm not the only one, who run a "Snoop-Server" on tor, so paranoid people, you better strap on your tinfoilbeanie.
