FBI Lets a Kiddie-Porn Defendant Walk Away

The Feebies have an exploit against Tor, but they'd have to disclose it in order to prosecute the defendant.

So they're letting him go.

Coventry/Ultra.

Tough call.

But now everyone knows TOR isn't any good anymore.

Then what's the point of having it?

At least get a lot of people at once. Scoop up the incriminating evidence, then prosecute as soon as feasible.

TOR has had problems for a couple of years. The intelligence agencies had found ways to force traffic through certain nodes and analyze the input/output results to tentatively identify the originating IP's as early as 2014. Any knowlegable TOR user knew they were possibly compromised by mid-2015, based upon a number of news reports.
