[tor-talk] How dangerous are malicious entry guards?

I’ve got a technical question: How dangerous are malicious entry guards?

I’ve seen very little info on this subject. Some state that there’s no 
immediate danger, while others state that you’ll “die on arrival”, especially 
if you’re operating a high risk onion service that falls into the Snowden/NSA 
territory, or an anti-government service in China/North Korea.

I’ve read undocumented claims about information/security agencies now using AI 
on super computers to aid with traffic analysis/correlation/confirmation 
attacks at entry node level, which is plausible considering the budgets at 
which certain agencies operate. I suspect a lot of entry guards, and nodes in 
general, are actually under their control.

Does anyone have any technical opinions, explanations or resources regarding 
this subject?
