If the google translation of the document at:
http://www.heise.de/ct/heft/2013-20--2248651.html is mostly accurate (if
not grammatically correct), this seems an odd statement:
"Overall, the probability that your privacy is sacrificed as collateral
damage increases by the use of Tor significantly."
An increase of sacrificed privacy compared to what? To "average" users
surfing w/ no privacy protection / anonymization at all? That would be
true only if LEAs weren't monitoring standard browsers / clear internet
traffic at all. But that's not the case.
Something lost in translation? Maybe they meant you're more likely to
be *monitored* when using Tor?
