comment TOR cracked: How do you think the FBI did it?
Yes, the malware attack was simple. An error in the site let them deanonymize the hidden service, once captured, they ran the site to target the users and included a flash-based callback which would be able to gather info from the local system such as MAC andIP. The second, newer form of attack is against the network itself and is much more complex... check out the 32c3 video in my answer.

I think the ibtimes article may be wrong. They're confusing the new attacks with the malware attacks. They cite a Motherboard article which goes into the history of malware attacks.

comment How could online encryption ever work?
This would have been a nice question to answer and even the author of the question plainly says it has nothing to do with specific algorithms. Asymmetric encryption can be hard to grasp, the most fundamental part of it is an algorithm which is harder to solve in one direction than the other. The best analogy I've heard is a padlock. locking it is one operation, unlocking it is easiest done with a private key. The locks can be distributed in the open, but the key needs to be kept secret. See the postal analogy: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public-key_cryptography#A_postal_analogy
