TorSearch Reveals the Hidden Internet

The function of TorSearch is to act like a bot and traverse the sites that are normally on the Tor network. These sites can’t be reached through proper channels. The venture was begun by Chris MacNaughton, a developer. Up until now TorSearch has filed 130,000 Tor resources. The user base may suggest sites to be added to the list. 

In his own words, MacNaughton says: “I want to be the Google of Tor”. Tor hides your identity by passing users’ browsing through various nodes. But before this the Tor Browser Bundle must be uploaded. Once you have this resource you may even get hold of .onion sites. 

Tor had a sort of Silk Road where shady activities such as drug trafficking and terrorist networks operated. This was busted and shut down by the government. The fact of the matter is that it furnishes anonymity for anyone willing to give it a go. Whether that person seeks the privacy for good or bad purposes is no business of Tor. Therefore beneath the veil a lot goes on at Tor. And this includes explicit pornography. 

MacNaughton may just have provided a means of access to the FBI and the NSA who are always snooping around in search of hanky-panky on the web. Illegal stuff will get found out thanks to this man who has pulled the cover from the Tor network.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
