They do have deanon attack you can read about that take
a while and some cost to perform. I believe it is thought by the
project to be a fairly high priority to look at and modify.

I find them acceptable performance. Bulk transfers proceed as
expected from least bandwidth available, session setup is ok
and you can have many connections up to a point. Though Tor
is low latency, its jitter is high so test if you need that.
