First batch controversial Tor router had no password protection




The first batch of the extradited Tor routers Anonabox appeared to have a very basic error in security. Users wifi could not protect it with a password, so anyone who could receive the Wi-Fi network, it could.

In addition, there was still a security hole, allowing any user could take the device on and things like passwords could eavesdrop, writes Wired. Because the errors can not be corrected with an update, Anonabox send all customers a new cabinet.

The Anonabox is a router that sends all traffic through Tor anonymizing network. It began as a crowdfunding project, but Kickstarter stopped the project. It came back on IndieGoGo and succeeded this time well and got the goal, and the extradition of this year has begun.

How is it that the errors were still in the Anonabox at release, is unknown. Anonabox has been following an acquisition of a product Sochule Incorporate.
