On the front page of Reddit today, there's a link to an article titled "FBI operated 23 Tor-hidden child porn sites, deployed malware from them".
My response comment was as follows:
My god.. People. Tor is a browser. You do not hide a website with Tor. You hide your activity as a visitor. There's no such things as a "Tor hidden website". And there is no magical secret place on the internet known as the "dark web" that you can only access with Tor - It's simply a group of websites that google and other search engines elect not to index in search results due to their illegal nature. You still simply type in the web address and get there from any browser. People just use Tor to get to them to hide their identity.
But I just want to double check and make sure I'm not wrong about this. I've never used Tor, but I have done a good deal of research on how it works.
