The Russian Government offers ~4 million ruble (~$111,000) to the one who decrypts data sent over Tor, an encrypted anonymizing network used by online users in order to hide their activities from law enforcement, government censors, and others.

MVD (Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs) issued an notice on July 11, named “Perform research, code ‘TOR’ (Navy)”, an open call for Tor-cracking proposals whose winner will be chosen by August 20.

Anonymity, which is of everybody’s interest, specially of activists, journalists, researchers, whistleblowers, who uses Tor anonymity service to hide their activities, are now under great threat from both sides.
