Submission + - Tor Sniffs Out Attacks Trying to De-Anonymize Users (threatpost.com)

msm1267 writes: For a little more than six months, attackers were on the Tor network trying to deanonymize users who operate or use Tor hidden services.

Tor issued a security advisory this morning warning users who operated or accessed hidden services between Jan. 30 and July 4 that they were likely affected. Tor officials are also recommending users to upgrade relays to the most recent Tor release, which closes off the vulnerability exploited by the attackers. Hidden service operators are also advised to change the location of their services.
