Netzpolitik.org (a german news blog focused on politics surrounding the 
digital world) today released a leak of internal emails and documents of the 
Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND, german intelligence service). The BND has it's 
own working group deticated to deanonymizing Tor users since 2008 and 
cooperates with the NSA and the GCHQ. All three agencies run their own exit 
nodes. The BND warned other german authorities not to use Tor as it's 
anonymization is allegedly ineffective.

The BND developed a technique to deanonymize Tor users and gave a prototype of 
it to the NSA, in expectation of compensation.
