"You are Anonymous!!! Then you must be Lucky"
Services like online banking require high confidentiality due to the sensitivity of the data being transfered. As a result, online users have turned to anonymity services which offer identity protection and secure communication in their web transactions. While these services are secure and trustworthy, their popularity has attracted many attacks which result in the identification of the users. In addition, online applications are not developed with the users' anonymity in mind, which opens doors for more vulnerabilities. In this talk, I will present several attacks that anonymous users may not be aware of but which may jeopardize their anonymity.
