Submission + - Tor Open to Attack

An anonymous reader writes: A group of researchers have written a paper that lays out an attacks against Tor, in enough detail to cause Roger Dingledine a fair amount of heartburn. The essential attacks are: Tor doesn't verify claims of uptime or bandwidth, allowing an attacker to advertise more than it need deliver, and thus draw traffic. If the attacker controls the entry and exit node and has decent clocks, then the attacker can link these together and trace someone through the network. Yowza!

Never ask two questions in a business letter. The reply will discuss the one you are least interested, and say nothing about the other.
