Hello Tor friends:

AN article on Ars Technica about the malicious exit nodes contains some
misleading advice attributed to "Tor officials."

>From end of article: "Tor officials have long counseled people to employ
a VPN when using the privacy service, and OnionDuke provides a strong
cautionary tale when users fail to heed that advice."


Maybe the article was supposed to read "HTTPS" instead of "VPN". Or,
"verify binaries" instead of "employ a VPN."

Could a real "Tor official" contact the author and ask for a correction?

Thank you.
