    TOR has been compromised - user IP addresses revealed, mail down, malware spreading; FBI appears implicated

      and looking at the javascript.  It reads the MAC address and sends it to a server in Virginia.  Looks like you had to be a windows client and be using certain version(s) of firefox.

      Tor just put out an advisory

      Around midnight on August 4th we were notified by a few people that a large number of hidden service addresses have disappeared from the Tor Network.
