What is Tor and Should your website block Tor users?

Great infographic by State of the Internet which raises an interesting question, should websites block Tor users?  Certainly one for debate, my view is it depends on your website 'marketplace', function and risk, in other words perform a risk assessment, a lazy answer I know.

But if like me you find yourself often explaining what Tor is to business folk, so they can perform those risk assessments properly, you'll find this infographic comes in quite handy. As it does a simple job of explaining Tor; who uses it, how it provides anonymity online, and how cyber criminals are embracing the tool for various illicit purposes.

I recommend checking out the State of the Internet website for further info, statistics and reports on Web and DDoS attacks, which continue to blight the Internet.

Thanks for the Infographic
Well, the Web vulnerabilities scanning is the most dangerous option and threat, the Hacking and security is a marathon. The most danger is in the companies and the governments websites, and especially if the hacker is a little teenager and still an amateur.
Thanks alot for the infographic it gives me more things to look at .
