Firefox and TOR hit by 0 Day Attack

This is a post series on cyber crime. For more posts click here or the cybercrime tag below.

May deanonyminize TOR users. There was a time when I thought that this was a bad thing.  The problem is that you can be either secure or insecure when it comes to networking. The people at TOR have made it clear that they are not willing to help average users keep their networking secure by preventing ransomware and other malware from propagating across the web.  The problem with that way of thinking is that nobody’s immune and eventually we all will be victims of the monstrous raw anarchy the currently reigns on the net if some way isn’t found to provide some policing of the “dark net.”
