Got Tor? Hit the Floor: NSA Targeting Tor Users

If you’ve ever been curious about privacy protection tool Tor, there’s a good chance the NSA’s tracking you at this very moment.

A new report on the matter indicates the NSA is using their surveillance program, X-Keyscore, to track anyone who’s even visited the webpages for Tor or the Linux-based safe-browsing OS Tails. First leaked by Edward Snowden, X-Keyscore enables the NSA to add people to a watch list based on their browsing habits. It can then find out your phone number or email address, read your emails, and follow every click and keystroke you make.

 

The safe-browsing tool Tor, funded by the US government, anonymizes your Internet traffic by sending the data down a series of encrypted hubs, called nodes. A favorite of hackers, activists, and journalists, the Tor network is used by over 750,000 people every day.

 

In spite of the report, the Electronic Freedom Foundation urged users to continue using the Tor Network.

 

"The more ordinary people use Tor and Tails, the harder it is for the NSA to make the case that reading about or using these tools is de facto suspicious," the EFF stated.
