I would like to ask what weaknesses can user suffer while surfing this private area...
you cant watch youtube videos for a starter lol... its slow as well... but privacy and cypto is awesome...
Tor is pretty good would say there isnt too many wekanesses to be honest.
You don't have to visit the onion network. You can use TOR because you want to remain anonymous. However, TOR does have some weaknesses. I've read that the <video> element introduced in HTML5 is vulnerable to leaking your real IP. There could be more but if the NSA finds them, they aren't going to tell anyone.
There are many ways you can 'leak' your info over TOR, specifically when you download data over the network, such as videos, files, and I thought I heard that there were dangerous cookies as well...
Personally, I don't trust TOR, or any proxy for that matter.
I'd rather go war-driving.
TOR is not safe, all these black marketplaces are being shut down one by one and people arrested.
I am sure these Deep web drug sellers take extra caution to hide their identity and location, they get busted anyway.
Exit nodes are vulnerable, traffic not crypted, so NSA and other snoopers can easily track the traffic and activities through them. Some people says that about one third of all exit nodes are owned by NSA and similar agencies.
Long goes the days where I thought I was safe behind Tor :/ I read recently that they are heavily cracking down on Tor and VPN usage, is this true?
The internet weighs about 50 grams. A cop weighs at least 1000 that, we are out gunned.
NSA is targeting Tor network.
My concern is about the password we use, may be there is possibility of losing passwords.
Far as "commercial browsing" goes, TOR is safe. Only country-level spies can crack it, but for 99.99% of sites you'll be perfectly anonymous.
Also, someone mentioned criminals getting caught : the purpose of Tor is not to cover up crimes, but to give average folks a relatively anonymous platform. The criminals getting caught on the Onion network are doing drugs, murder, and so on, and most likely they were caught outside of Tor, via their money trail, rather than on Tor.
Tor are used by people who want to hide illigal activity and thereby is targeted by authorities. If you want to use tor for that purpose then the cops wil knock your DOOR down.
If you just want to do legal activities then there are still people who can listen in on the data you send and recieve from the internet. Tor just make it a little more dificult to decrypt the data.
For really anonymous surfing you need a clean computer and a public hotspot using user profiles that dont reveal your identity...
tor is fine they can't do anything. VPN>TOR and you have close to perfect privacy.
during toor u have those thinks that u like
use virtual private network is more safe i think
