Re: Building tracking system to nab Tor pedophiles

Well, first, this is just the normal exit node exposure of tor.

The exit node in your circuit gets to see the raw communication
between you and your destination. If you are using an SSL channel
(SSH, https, etc) then nothing is a problem. Otherwise, the exit node
can do things like spy on usernames and passwords, etc.

There are already sites that modify the HTML of web pages going
through them -- I've had scripts munged on some sites, for example --
and this is just another case of that.

Now, I believe tor allows you do exclude nodes from ever being used as
exit nodes.
