    Recently, ISIS has been showing increasingly aggressive cold-blooded tendencies, like the Paris Attacks. The hacking group Anonymous has been targeting their social media which seems to be helping slow their recruitment, but the NSA and other counter-terrorism organizations have been struggling to monitor their communications because they've been using the currently un-cracked Tor network. Several weeks ago, when I read an article about that, I dropped all my projects to research Tor, and try to find a weakness. Although I didn't find a weakness in the anonymity or encryption, I think I found a way to cripple the entire network, rendering it practically useless. Here is my idea:

    The Tor network is based on communication passing through an onion-like web of proxy servers, which anonymizes the users. However, the massive number of proxy servers slows down the connection speeds to several hundred kilobytes per seconds. The Tor network is also very slow because some people torrent massive illegal files through the Tor network. (mostly movies) There has been no solution for this other than encouraging more people to run relay and exit nodes. Now, what would happen if hundreds of people who want to fight ISIS each set up their computers to devour as much Tor bandwidth as possible. I suspect that this would cripple the entire network, if done properly. If there were a solution to this flaw in the Tor network, it would have already been fixed because of the torrent issue. The only drawback is that, if my idea works, the ENTIRE Tor network would die. These are the pros and cons of the death of Tor:

    Pros:
    - Very severe difficulties for ISIS's communications, which would hopefully last long enough for other countries to retaliate. They may even make a mistake and choose a new communications method that counter-terrorism organizations CAN monitor!
    - Harder for people to ruin their lives with drugs.
    - Less child pornography.

    Cons:
    - Harder to share sensitive information without being traced and caught.
    - Harder to keep websites uncensored.
    - Harder to access censored information from closed countries. (But not much harder.)

    Now, to participate in this campaign, simply follow these steps:

    1 - Download and install the Tor Browser Bundle.
    2 - Download and install qBittorrent. (Other clients probably work too, but I know qBittorrent does.)
    3 - Open the Tor browser.
    4 - Open "Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor\torrc-defaults" in a text editor, and make a note of the SocksPort number listed. (It usually is 9150.)
    4 - Open qBittorrent.
    5 - Goto Tools-> Options-> Connection
    6 - In "Proxy Server" set "Type" to "SOCKS5", "Host" to "127.0.0.1", and "Port" to the Tor SocksPort you found in step 4. Also make sure that "Use proxy for peer connections." and "Disable connections not supported by proxies." are both checked.
    7 - Open this torrent in qBittorrent. If everything worked right, it should start downloading soon! This torrent is also specially designed so that you if you set the download destination to an NTFS compressed folder, it will only take 300MB of disk space instead of 5GB!
    8 - When this torrent finishes downloading, simply delete the files and restart it! (Even if you forget to delete and restart this torrent, the seeding should still use some Tor bandwidth.)

    And don't worry about it using too much of your regular internet bandwidth. Your computer normally shunts hundreds megabytes of data back and forth when you use the clearweb, so a few hundred extra kilobytes through Tor shouldn't make a noticeable difference.

    If the torrent doesn't download after you've followed the above steps, try asking Google for help. Or, you can try this alternate method:
    Alternate Method

    If you're hesitant to participate in this campaign, simply ask yourself this: "Is easily getting child porn and drugs really worth a much higher risk of World War 3 to you?"

    If you're wondering just how evil ISIS really is, just go here to see pictures and videos of them MURDERING INNOCENT CHILDREN: (WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT) Then, just imagine them doing that to your child! (Or a child you're friends with if you don't have children.)

    Please share the black text part of this post and the magnet link or torrent file with all your friends so that as many people as possible can participate in this campaign!

    ^ -------------- [Please share the part above this line] -------------- ^

    Another way you could help is if you have experience in programming apps that use the Tor network, you could help develop an application that runs in the background of computers and does nothing but devour as much Tor bandwidth as it can! That would make it much easier for people to participate in this campaign.

    I'm eager to hear any comments and/or questions!

    Also, if it turns out that my idea really does work, I would appreciate it if I remained anonymous in any other posts that share my idea. I don't care about getting the credit, I just want to help save the free world!

    Note to moderators: If this is the wrong section for this thread, please move it where it belongs.

    Uhh, I'm not working on any Wii U exploits right now. If you mean Uwizard 1.2.0, then I plan to release it some time next week.

    Seems interesting. I might try this when I get home. I have 2 wifi networks so I will set up 2 PCs on one network and 2 onot the other and I'll just torrent lots of massive files :D

    I've just created a torrent file and a guide for torrenting through Tor. (Reread the OP.) You can use that torrent to maximize Tor bandwidth and minimize storage space! (Of course, it couldn't hurt to add other torrents too!)

    Wait, you want to take down all of Tor, the drug peddling network and all of the underground deep web, used by the people of communist countries to get a glimpse of the outside world, used by pedophiles and drug addicts, just to make it inaccessible to ISIS? That sounds fun and devious, but will even work? Even if you slow it to a byte a second that'll still be enough to send an e-mail. You'll also need a lot more people than "1 people currently viewing this thread".

    I would never attack the tor network normally, because I like the tor network and everything it stands for, but to temporarily blind it just to make their next attack a little harder to pull off? Why not.

    How long until some tor dev retaliates I wonder. Or if. I'll give your thing a shot, maybe tell a couple other people to join in.

    Sorry tor. :/

    So this is set up correctly? I'm using uTorrent.

    Hmm... doesn't seem to work. It doesn't download anything in bittorrent either.

    I'm glad people are listening! And yes you have a very good point: After the ISIS crisis has passed, Tor could be used again! Also, even if it is a byte a second, that would still be quite a monkey wrench in their communications network. No more vids or HD pics at that speed.

    Also, make sure you have the Tor browser open. The Tor connection is only open when the browser is.

    EDIT: You could also just try downloading my torrent with the proxy off just to make sure you can connect to me seeding it and the problem isn't on my end.

    Also try closing the torrent client and Tor, then opening Tor, then opening the client, in that order. You could also try 9050 for the port or 9151.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    You could also try downloading the latest version of Tor and qBittorrent. That's what's working for me.

    Weirdly enough it shows my peers but nothing will download, not even random music from tpb. Maybe it's because I'm using Windows 10.

    I'll keep messing with it, I'll keep trying with different torrent clients.

    Hmm, well I seem to have gotten it to work for me with the instructions in the OP. I used this website to make sure I really was using Tor for the torrent. However, I don't think it would hurt to try Privoxy, since my method isn't working for you. Maybe as you suggested, Windows 10 has something to do with it. I'm using Windows 7.

    Nice DDOS attack, I have been slowing down the Tor network for ages with Torrents (Linux Distros) for ages, so let me give you a tutorial on how to do it right;

    1.Go to piratebrowser.com and download piratebrowser1.0b.

    2.Run the downloaded .exe file You may be prompted to verify the application, press "Run"

    3.Select the desination folder and press "Extract"
    (It will create a PirateBrowser folder in the path you assign)

    4.Go to the new directory and copy the "Start PirateBrowser.exe" file, the "app" folder, and the "data" folder to your Torrent client (e.g. C:\Users\Username\Appdata\Local\uTorrent)

    5.Open the "Data" folder You just copied, go in to the "Vidalia" and open "vidalia.conf" file with a text editor, and replace "BrowserDirectory=..\\FirefoxPortable\\App\\Firefox" with "BrowserDirectory=..\\", and "BrowserExecutable=piratefox.exe" with "BrowserExecutable=(you torrent clients main executable)" (e.g. "BrowserExecutable= uTorrent.exe")


    6.Run "Start PirateBrowser.exe"

    7. Go in to the torrent client's proxy settings, set them to "Type" to Socks4, "Proxy address" to 127.0.0.1, "Port" to 9050, and check hostname lookups, P2P, Disable unsupported connections, and disable local DNS.

    8. Optional: Go to the "Bandwidth" settings, and set everything in the "Number of Connections" box to 999.

    Wow, thanks! Check this out jamieyello, maybe it'll work for you!

    I'll admit that several weeks ago, I didn't even know what Tor was. Since you seem to be an expert on this, would you mind answering this question: Why did my method work for me, if it was wrong? (I'm not criticizing you, I just am curious.)

    If it is not set up right web traffic will just go past Tor on to your normal network;

    I did check my IP address and it was different than without using my method. Why?
