When does the next security breach affect your life?
After more than a year of public debate over whether to ban or relax the use of Tor and other encryption tools, a new study suggests that those arguments are no longer valid.
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago conducted a survey of nearly 2,000 people, asking them what the biggest threat to their lives is, including a new cyberattack that has targeted schools and other public institutions.
The study, which was published Wednesday in the Journal of Public Policy Research, found that, while the overall number of cyberattacks increased over the past year, they actually fell by only 1 percent.
Researchers say the survey is a “strong reflection of the changing threats facing organizations and the people they serve.”
It also shows that organizations are trying to adapt to new threats, the researchers wrote.
For now, Tor remains the most popular public VPN and has long been the safest option for anyone looking to stay anonymous online.
But the researchers found that people who use Tor tend to be younger and less educated.
And those who use the Tor software more often, such as a new generation of users, have less experience with online security.
They also found that those who used Tor more often were less likely to use it for their personal or business privacy, and less likely than those who did not to use the software to access a wide range of online services.
The survey found that the average age of respondents was 46, and that about 40 percent of those who were using Tor were under age 35.
In addition, 41 percent of Tor users said they had used the tool at least once in the last month, compared with 35 percent of people who didn’t use the service.
The researchers said the survey also indicated that older Tor users were less able to adapt and more likely to revert to the older tools, and were less secure.
But Tor users are more likely than their younger counterparts to be more aware of their security, and to have tried to use Tor for years, the study found.
The results also indicate that Tor users tend to use their Tor network more often than users of other public networks, including social media, email and other websites, according to the researchers.
And they are more often using Tor in locations with strong public infrastructure, such a airports, bridges, hospitals and transportation hubs, the survey found.
Overall, Tor users had about twice as many connections to the Tor network as the rest of the population.
But many of the older users were more likely that they would have used the tools more often.
Older Tor users tended to have more time on their hands, and they had more of the tools installed on their devices, the paper found.
“As a result, they may be more likely for older users to use these tools when they are vulnerable to a cyberattack, or when they have been using the tools for years and are using them more frequently,” the researchers write.
A Tor spokesman said in a statement that the survey “is a step in the right direction,” but noted that “no data is available to support the findings.”
