In my recent article /news/28-tor-talk-pulled it seems there was more going on as expected.
In a court case it has been revealed that the FBI made the security researchers hand over data to help identify the people suspected of using Tor, and those people after the talk did not go ahead were raided.
I leave it there to draw your own conclusions but as mentioned keeping Tor and the related software update is important. The FBI were of course going after the admins of Silk Road 2.0 and other sites which could be a good thing. What do you think?, comments please.
