when you're using tor can the node operators see ur ip address?
if not who can?
the node operators don't see it, but anybody can who has enforcement powers: interpol, fbi etc.
if you're planning to do something shady, then just don't do it
im not doing anything criminal but id feel secure if no 1 could see it
what method do they use to see it tho>
your packets are encrypted until they reach the exit node, nobody can see your ip address, the exit node will see the sites you visit and even your passwords, posts etc. if the site is not encrypted, the visited sites will see the exit node's ip address
if you use a simple http connection, the exit nodes can read your packets with wireshark or other tools, there are middle man and statistical attacks too, but difficult to deploy, the feds probably use it
with some js twists they can reveal it and not just your ip, with a simple js command the time on your pc can be captured and much much more
doesnt tor already change the js settings so its safe and anonymous tho?
thats what the faq says. i rly don't want to disable js
if you don't do it you're probably gonna leak a wealth of info you don't really want to give away if privacy is your main concern... With https everywhere a few attacks on tor, as noted above, while possible are fairly "complicated" to accomplish in real life and for the most part not in your average skid skillset...
i also read that tor bundle used to disable js by default but stopped and now changes its settings instd...
so is it safe or no?
privacy isnt really my main concern btw anonymity is
its not like i put credit card # w/ tor.
do u guys know the details to which js was fixed w/ the newest tor bundle ver.?
and if its safe to use the default torbutton settings?
