TOR

Nice, but large article about how much TOR pisses the NSA off. I would have thought they would have thumped this into the ground by now (ironically, TOR was originally developed by the US Navy. Your tax dollars hard at work … ). It turns out that the golden horse of real time surveillance of all TOR users just simply isn’t possible, so they have to pick their targets, divert them (ie man in the middle), and infect their machines. Nice (something similar happened when the FBI pulled Tormail off the net). Still no excuse to stop looking over your shoulder though …
