But you will not believe with the new information that comes from the BBC, as Andrew Lewman, Executive Director for the Tor Project, said that they have been receiving tips from both inside the GCHQ, one of the British spy agencies, and the NSA.
May this is because, NSA now taking interest in Tor Project because it is highly annoyed with the fact that it cannot spy on people while within the network, this entire situation is quite ridiculous.
Lewman says that they get regular tips from the spying agency in a month, which stats-
“There are plenty of people in both organisations who can anonymously leak data to us to say – maybe you should look here, maybe you should look at this to fix this,”and Tor team fixed the issue after they investigate the reported issue.
While he doesn’t exactly have proof of the origin for the leaks, he’s pretty sure that the NSA and GCHQ are it. “It’s a hunch,” he said. “Obviously we are not going to ask for any details.”
Lewman pointed out that you have to consider the type of people who would be able to do this, to detect these bugs, and who have the expertise and time to read Tor source code from scratch for hours, weeks, months and “find and elucidate these super-subtle bugs or other things that they probably don’t get to see in most commercial software.”
