In light of recent events, I've been learning more about Tor, and I have a lot of questions. Here's one.
Wikipedia's article states;
As of 2012, 80% of the Tor Project's $2M annual budget comes from the United States government, with the Swedish government and other organizations providing the rest, including NGOs and thousands of individual sponsors.
I realize that Tor software is open source, so surely if there were some obvious issues with it, we'd know about them already. Still, I can't help but wonder if, by using it, I'm simply bringing myself into a henhouse of the foxes' own making, or at the very least inviting more scrutiny. Is my paranoia justified?
