Introduction To Tor

A very Horrible thing i got to know and thought should share will all Crypto Holders here.


Tor Popular For Darkweb And Illegal things

Tor browser is mostly used by hackers because of its ip switching extension inside the browser making it anonymous browser.


Tor is also very popular when it comes to the Another World ( Dark Web ) where people place videos by torturing any gender, whether its male female ( you would have heard the thing ) almost every illegal inhumane things are done their also the viewers bet on the things to do, challenging each other to the worst things ever watched or hear.

The dark web is a part of the internet that isn't indexed by search engines. You've no doubt heard talk of the “dark web” as a hotbed of criminal activity — and it is. Researchers Daniel Moore and Thomas Rid of King's College in London classified the contents of 2,723 live dark web sites over a five-week period in 2015 and found that 57% host illicit material.

Now coming to the point where hackers used tor to attack , Tor is basically using Relays And after switching out different relays it comes exit relay which got exploit for hackers.

They have operated about 30-40 % exit relays which helped them to do changes in redirection of Bitcoin transactions.

redirection is like i tried exchanging while exchanging was on process they can change the site url or address to their own through which all the money goes to their wallet and we all know once it goes to someone's wallet we cannot do anything about it.

Tweet Explaining all

Hackers used Exit relays And then with these relays they Decrypt all the encryption Protocols which Carry's the security of webpage and can easily access and manipulate all the data inside the page, With this They easily Switch the receiving address to their own.

The vulnerabilities come as a shock to those for whom Tor is the gold standard of anonymity for a web browser. Tor is the interface many use to access the dark web, the underbelly of the Internet that houses drug marketplaces and other illegal activity. The browser is also used by whistleblowers and journalists trying to evade surveillance.

You can get more information by clicking on Refferences as it will redirect ( dont be scared for the redirection after my explanation above lol ) to the Site where everything is explained if you didn't understand my words because of my bad english lol .
