[tor-talk] Sybil Attack



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA512

There has been some worry about a possible Sybil attack on the Tor
network and a threat of deploying a 0 day once a Sybil has been
confirmed. The concerned relays right now are using then nickname
LizardNSA followed by random characters

As none of the Tor developers have yet responded to the matter, to
which my recommendation is assigned BadExit flags to all the new ones
with that naming scheme, I recommend just avoiding the US relays all
together at this point as that is where all their exits so far (to my
knowledge). To do that just put the following in your torrc

ExcludeNodes US
StrictNodes 1

There are other things you could do like manually specifying your
guard nodes but I don't want to start making such a recommendation
until somebody more knowledgable than I do comments with such a
recommendation.

Regards,
T
