Yesterday, Tor [issued a security advisory](https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-security-advisory-relay-early-traffic-confirmation-attack) which revealed that a group of relays had been discovered on July 4th which looked like they "were trying to deanonymize users." The advisory states that the attack "involved modifying Tor protocol headers to do traffic confirmation attacks" with the relays having joined the network at the start of the year. This means they were potentially deanonymizing users between January 30th and July 4th when they were finally removed. A Tor spokesperson says that they know the attack "looked for users who fetched hidden service descriptors, but the attackers likely were not able to …

It seems like forever, but actually it was only the end of last year that we were [writing about CryptoLocker](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/news/470427/cryptolocker-250k-infections-in-100-days-nets-300000-or-does-it) which had pretty much redefined the ransomware landscape.

However, this last week it has emerged in the wild being dropped by something called the Angler exploit kit. So why is this such a change …

In amongst the depravity and illegal excess, of course, were political activists and dissidents looking for an online safe haven in order to escape persecution, prosecution and potentially death. Revelations that the FBI would appear to have been behind the takedown of Freedom Hosting, apparently responsible for …

Once again my school laptop has failed me. I downloaded UltraSurf and tried to run it at my house, where it connected 100%. I came to school, the place I was always going to use it, and it could never go past 99.9% connection. I realised it wasn't working, so I exited it and tried to vist some webpages with Google Chrome, but I could not connect to any sites, so I restarted. When I logged back on, my computer said it could not detect any networks. I ran the troubleshooter and all the connections came back and I logged …
