Every release of Tor Browser brings new features: many help people circumvent censorship to Tor, better protect their privacy, or are designed to make Tor easier to use.
These new features can introduce bugs, and we need your help to find and squash them. 🐛

In the past several years, we have learned many lessons and as a result, established consistent bad relay criteria, built better monitoring tools, improved our cross-team coordination, and significantly raised the bar for malicious operators trying to enter the network.

Show thread

We want to shine more light on how we detect and remove malicious relays on the Tor network, how we've developed and use our strategies and tools, and what we're doing to make it harder for bad operators to run attacks.
