- An unknown hacker has been adding thousands of malicious servers to the Tor Network since early 2020.
- Acting as “exit relays,” the nodes are pinpointing and modifying users’ data to steal their cryptocurrencies, a new report suggested.
The Tor Project explained that these servers stopped websites from redirecting visitors to more secure HTTPS versions of their platforms. If users didn’t notice, and continued to send or receive sensitive information, it could have been intercepted by the attacker.
It is believed that the hacker is using their servers to switch crypto addresses in transaction requests made by users and redirect their cryptocurrencies to their own wallets.
