+ - Sixty percent of Tor funding comes from US DoD->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "According to consolidated financial statements and reports of the Tor Project for the year ending December 2012, US Federal agencies are responsible for nearly sixty percent of funds received by the project. However, there has been no concrete evidence that the US government has managed to sneak a backdoor into the Tor software, but there have been rumblings on quite a few mailing lists that this possibility cannot be ruled out. Tor has taken a defensive stand against this and in an emailed statement to Tor users, the project’s Executive Director Andrew Lewman wrote that just because Tor receives and accepts funding from federal agencies doesn't mean that the project is collaborating with NSA and helping them to unmask people’s online identities."
