Do you think SilkRoad volume is increasing and this has an effect on price?

Silk Road is a very small part of Tor. It's near the bottom on most Tor homepages.

I think this is caused by the NSA scandal, it doesn't have anyting to do with Silk road.
People see that they are spied on and want more privacy.

If it was caused by NSA scandal we should see a steady grow starting few months ago, just after the first leaks.
My personal vote goes for an attack or software bug.
This was my first thought.

To be fair I hardly ever used tor until a couple days ago.

Well, thanks to the media attention my Android device is now totally shielded by Tor. I don't know the impact on battery yet.

I don't know the impact on your monthly bandwidth yet.

It might not be that bad if his Tor daemon is not configured as a relay. (Not enabled by default)

This isn't a result of the Silk Road. This is a result of the US Government.

I think it would be cool for somebody to make their phone an exit node. That way, it wouldn't be nearly as easy for people to distinguish between tor traffic and other traffic.

You'd think some privacy-oriented company would sponsor something like that, especially if they have an internet connectivity related business themselves.

Are you using Orbot? Do you like it? I've considered giving it a try.

It's Orbot indeed.

Installation is quite easy. I have default settings with start on boot and covering all Inet traffic from the device. I have the feeling that it kinda sucks battery and, indeed, impact on bandwidth remains to be seen. Regardless, it's a good start and at least there is an option to just leave Orbot off and switch it on to use the Orweb TOR Browser when I consider it necessary....  Roll Eyes

There's a plugin -Network preferences  for mobile Firefox to chose port 8118,
dont think that it does route all Traffic thru tor?


I read on heise.de  that the Tor Traffic increase was the same in all Country's Germany and Bangladesh, what they say it's unusual

I read an account, I thnk it was on reddit, of a guy who found his machine connecting to tor and acting as a relay on its own. It was infected.
This botnet operator was setting up his bots as Tor relay: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/sq7cy/iama_a_malware_coder_and_botnet_operator_ama/

The spikes in the plot above are obviously outliers if you look at the variance of the rest of the data. I have no idea how to explain them. More alarming is the estimated number of users:


You posted the same chart with a differently-scaled x-axis...

Oh, crap. I was focused on the title of the thread, which said that network traffic was exploding, and was amazed to see the number of users exploding, too... That, and maybe the amyloid deposits in my brain... Shocked
