Submission + - Tor Exit Nodes Located and Mapped (

Itsik writes: "Tor Exit Nodes are the gateways where encrypted Tor traffic hits the Internet. This means an exit node can be abused to monitor Tor traffic (after it leaves the onion network). It is in the design of the Tor network that locating the source of that traffic through the network should be difficult to determine. However if the exit traffic is unencrypted and contains identifying information then an exit node can be abused.
The torproject therefore is dependent on a diverse and wide range of exit nodes. This is an attempt to display the exit nodes diversity in a Google map with Geolocation. The map was built using Google Maps API v3, with Marker Clusterer."
