Re: Question about the vulnerability

Roger, thank you for your response - I did follow that thread when 
it came out and upgraded my systems. The question I have is not 
really about the vulnerability but more of a general operational 
one - in what situations is the control port actually used? If I am 
not running a Tor server but using Tor in client mode, does the 
Control Port get used? What is it used for? 

Thanks again for the great software....looking to do more with it
