One Bad Apple Spoils the Bunch: Exploiting P2P Applications to Trace and Profile Tor Users
In this paper, we show that linkability allows us to trace 193% of additional streams, including 27% of HTTP streams possibly originating from "secure" browsers. Expand
Compromising Tor Anonymity Exploiting P2P Information Leakage
In this paper, we first present two techniques targeting BitTorrent users on top of Tor that reveal their real IP addresses. Expand

This paper proposes a framework to geolocalize fast-flux servers, that is, to determine the physical location of the fast-Flux networks roots (mothership servers) based on network measurements. Expand
De-anonymizing BitTorrent Users on Tor
We discuss three different attacks to reveal the IP address of BitTorrent users on top of Tor to preserve their privacy. Expand
Why spammers should thank Google?
We exploit the notion of Followers/Follwing in Buzz to crawl Google for Gmail accounts, demonstrating how it is easy and practical to collect millions of valid Gmail accounts from a single machine, in a very short period of time and without being noticed. Expand
