Hi!

This morning I noticed a huge spike in the estimated exit probability
per continent graph and network capacity graph:

http://ygzf7uqcusp4ayjs.onion/tor-health/tor-health/index.html

After a bit of investiguation turns out 3 new relays were advertising a
HUGE bandwidth.

I contacted the person (it's a known Tor researcher at NRL) and he
realized they were mis-configured advertising way too much bw. It should
be fixed soon hopefully but they are 3 real exit nodes.

However, the humongeous weights are concerning since they were very
"young" relays in the lifetime of a relay so it worth investiguating and
thinking if this is normal or maybe a bug?

Cheers!
David
