This actually depends on what to mean by "Tor". If just the network 
level part, then yes. But tor project also provides and promotes TBB, 
which attempts to prevent various client side exploits and web app 
attacks, but apparently can't prevent all of them. If tor project went 
one step further, and developed security-by-isolation approach (using 
virtual machines, like Whonix does), this could prevent practically all 
client side exploits. And pretty much the only way user could be 
deanoned is if he himself typed in his personal information, or logged 
into some service shared with other identities.
