rjmarvin (3001897) writes "Tor is the backbone of the anonymous Internet, and the NSA is turning the proxy network into Skynet by monitoring and even running its own Tor nodes http://sdt.bz/content/article..... A German news outlet has released a scathing report http://daserste.ndr.de/panoram... on just how the NSA monitors Tor traffic. Specifically, the NSA is tagging IP addresses that come to Tor nodes and watches them. They're especially watching anyone who knows about XKeyscore, a tool built at the NSA to do deep packet analysis of monitored traffic.the NSA has, effectively, built a huge stack of offensive intrusion tools that can be automatically triggered by something like searching for information about XKeyscore, and is the beginning of the end of Internet freedom."
