on the Tor mailing list dated Jan 20, 2010, Tor developer Roger Dingledine
outlines the issue and why you should upgrade to Tor or
now: "In early January we discovered that two of the seven directory
authorities were compromised (moria1 and gabelmoo), along with, a new server we'd recently set up to serve
