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.
