2013 FBI and Freedom Hosting:

2015 FBI operation "Playpen"

In both cases, the FBI took over the Tor onion sites platform and
deployed a network investigative technique on the Tor hidden service
sites - the agency's term for a hacking tool. That tool used a
vulnerability to circumvent the protections of the Tor Browser Bundle,
and then installed a trojan, which grabbed the suspect's IP address and
system information.

>> But one clue might be that the FBI can read Bugzilla posts for whichever browser Tor uses (Firefox now) 

For operation "Playpen" an own new 0-day exploit was used by FBI.
Mozilla and TorProject tried to get informations about the bug,


But the bug was classified by FBI because of "National Security".
