Perhaps these 1.8e+6 (standard stats) to 4.0e+6 (beta stats) new Tor
clients members of a botnet designed, at least in part, to securely and
redundantly host hidden services. The demise of Freedom Hosting may have
stimulated some creative thinking.

Also, if this were a botnet, I would expect it to show up in honeypots.
Wouldn't its bots be easily detected, through searching for Tor
connections? Having the vector might be very informative.
