The Tor Project inform them users its about a major browser error, which can execute JavaScript code in sites which users have blocked mode JavaScript. The developers of software Tor said they are trying to fix this error without setting a timetable for an updated version code.

The possibility of blocking JavaScript code execution is critical feature security of the Tor Browser Bundle (TBB), a browser that has enhanced privacy features that also cover real addresses IP to keep users anonymous on-line. Because of these features, the browser is often used by journalists, political activists, and dissidents in oppressive countries as a way to cover firewalls and online censorship.

In the past, there have been holdings that used the JavaScript code to reveal the actual IP address of a Tor Browser user. Some of them were used to reveal criminals activities, while others were used in mysterious and strange cases.

The Tor team announced that they had found an error in the options security of TBB. When the browser is configured to use the highest level of security called "Safest", it still allows JavaScript to run, even if it should have been blocked.Tor Browser-error-executing javascript code
