    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

      Tor security advisory: Old Tor Browser Bundles vulnerable

      An attack that exploits a Firefox vulnerability in JavaScript has been observed in the wild. Specifically, Windows users using the Tor Browser Bundle (which includes Firefox plus privacy patches) appear to have been targeted.

      Hidden Services, Current Events, and Freedom Hosting

      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. There are a variety of rumors about a hosting company for hidden services: that it is suddenly offline, has been breached, or attackers have placed a javascript exploit on their web site.
