Hi Hyoung-Kee,

Thanks for letting us know. And now we're all curious: what was this

TorFlow really needs a maintainer currently, and indeed there are
many known attacks to manipulate the results, for example because
it calculates your consensus weight as a function of your current
self-measured bandwidth.
