I have downloaded TOR Expert Bundle standalone application. Does it work as an exit node by default?

UPDATE. Related: Does running the Tor browser turn me into a (exit) relay?

Important. My question is solely for TOR Expert Bundle, not for the TOR Browser. It's crucial to have a separate question as official FAQ don't transparently state this.


By default it used not to, but nowdays - especially as IPv6 support was introduced - the manual about torrc and ExitPolicy in precise - states it a bit unclear with default exit policies. So - now the answer is "YES". Use just 2 lines to secure it:

ExitPolicy reject *:*
ExitPolicy reject6 *:*
