Hi all,

Here is our current Tor configuration through freedombox-setup [1]:


apt-get install -y tor

cat > /etc/tor/torrc <<EOF
ORPort 4431
BridgeRelay 1
Exitpolicy reject *:*

It is set to run Tor as a bridge relay (non-exit, and not listed in
the main Tor directory). It is based on example configuration for
bridge relays given in the Tor documentation [2] but modified to still
allow SOCKS connections.

Do you see any vulnerabilities, attacks, or risks with the current
configuration, and are there any changes that you would recommend?
