Tor warns against possible attacks to disable its anonymiser network

The Tor project has revealed on its blog, that it has heard from trusted sources that a serious attempt may be made in the near future to dismantle the Tor Project. The statement doesn’t identify the source of the alleged threat but warns an attack might come “through the seizure of specialized servers in the network called directory authorities.” Directory authorities is what Tor clients use to learn about the relays that constitute the entire Tor network.
