[tor-talk] Using VPN less safe?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Today I thought about something...
Let's assume that attacker (government) seizes the hidden service and
wants to run it and deanonymize its users with traffic correlation.
Attacker could easily tap into major VPN providers traffic and try to
correlate their traffic with hidden service traffic. And there are fewer
VPN providers than Tor entry guards (and much less than home connections
around the globe).
Does it mean that routing Tor through a commercial VPN could actually
lower the security, compared to routing Tor directly through a home
connection? It's in contrast with what many say, that you should use
a commercial VPN for extra security.
