On FBI request, Hacking Team updated its software to monitor TOR browsers
The FBI complained on Hacking Team’s customer website that the company’s “URL collector does not collect web traffic on TOR browser,” and suggested how to fix it:
download TOR browser bundle. Surf web through TOR browser. Infect the target with an agent with www collector enabled. WWW traffic is not collect when target surfs through TOR browser.
Less than two weeks later they told [the FBI] that [their] requested feature was in the works: “Dear Client, next RCS [Remote Control System] release (8.2.0) will capture URL from the TOR browser. Thank you.”
PS: interesting disclosure in the article:
(Disclosure: The Tor Project, which helps develop Tor and Tor Browser, has received money from the Freedom of the Press Foundation, where I sit on the board. It has also received money from the Omidyar Foundation, co-founded by Pierre Omidyar, who funds The Intercept‘s parent company First Look Media.)
