Lizard Squad, the hacker group responsible for the Christmas Day attacks on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, has turned its sights upon anonymous internet server, Tor (The Onion Network).

Lizard Squad’s latest attack seems to be designed to compromise users’ anonymity by commandeering Tor’s relay nodes. If the hackers take control of enough nodes, it will be able to eavesdrop on, track, and identify Tor users. So far, Lizard Squad has control of 3,000 relays, close to half of all nodes.

As of Friday evening, the attack continues. Tor has yet to comment on the situation.
