Operation
Torpedo to detect unmask users the Tor network has become successful primarily
through the work of an earlier gate-member. In 2008, he
was still working on Tor itself, 2012, he was indirectly
for the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Torsploit
alias Cornhusker has been written by a former member of the developer community
of the Tor project. However, Matt Edman was not part of the core team and
worked only part-time on the project - and then only at the Vidalia component.
Only on this component he could make changes that would simplify ultimately the
operation of the target. 2013 Vidalia was abandoned. Over
the ancillary activity the developer has apparently gathered enough experience
to develop Torsploit. He supported Tor also further work.
Tor Malware Allowed FBI Agents To Unmask Anonymous Users

Only
later took the developers, the goal in accompanied during his studies, a
position at the Mitre Corporation. Mitre is also known for the care of the CVE
list, the vulnerabilities assigns their unique numbers.
In
Mitre Edman 2012 was given certain tasks that should help
the US federal police in the search for criminals. He did right in the Remote
Operations Unit of the FBI. He later worked for other employers who have worked
respectively for the FBI.
Flash
Player Helped Edman In Tracking Down Suspects
Edman
has over time become an important part of Operation Torpedo, which thereby
became known in mid-2014 that it identified sites
containing child pornography as well as their votes in the Dark Net. The
malware Cornhusker managed to track Pedophiles. The FBI had this fortunate that
searched vulnerabilities in Flash Player from Adobe did not take seriously. In
it, find the IP addresses of the suspects succeeded.
Cornhusker
has since no longer in use, such as the FBI assured in a process. In addition,
the US Federal Bureau of Investigation has reportedly completely lost the
source code of the malicious software.

The
Daily Dot emphasizes that this is a US Government agency the Tor project
strongly supported, while another authority at the same time thus employed to
chop the project. Goal serves primarily the anonymity in the network and
therefore also attracts criminals.
