Attacking Tor: how the NSA targets users’ online anonymity

TOR will not help you.  NSA uses “exploits” in your computer’s software to plant viruses and to hack into your system.  TOR users are favorite targets for this war machine.  Guardian posted the most in depth analysis yet from Edward Snowden’s exposures.

The NSA refers to these capabilities as CNE, or computer network exploitation.

After identifying an individual Tor user on the internet, the NSA uses its network of secret internet servers to redirect those users to another set of secret internet servers, with the codename FoxAcid, to infect the user’s computer. FoxAcid is an NSA system designed to act as a matchmaker between potential targets and attacks developed by the NSA, giving the agency opportunity to launch prepared attacks against their systems.

Waging war on American civilians is defined as treason in our Constitution.  When cyber war attacks are launched on US citizen’s computers, this is high treason and should be treated as such.
