Facebook makes Tor users? Not quite.




Facebook makes Tor users? Not quite.

Yesterday, a message made the rounds that Facebook users of the Tor network locked out. A login was not possible, use an anonymous Facebooks therefore also not. Facebook was quickly identified as the scapegoat, this is not quite correct, however.

As on the Tor blog is to read , it is true that some of the users could not log. The reason for this, however, was no concrete action by Facebook, but rather malicious activities in a large number of Tor exit nodes. This meant that Facebook’s protection measures have been skipped and appropriate calls were blocked. Meanwhile, the access is again possible without restrictions, the problem was fixed by Facebook.
