The Tor Project's Jacob Appelbaum is storied in the hacker community–he was an instrumental member of the WikiLeaks project and is now one of the more public-facing activists at Tor. The developer now faces very serious allegations:
– On Thursday he quietly posted his departure from Tor
– On Saturday the organization published a statement saying that "a number of people have made serious, public allegations of sexual mistreatment by former Tor Project employee Jacob Appelbaum."
Today, Appelbaum released a blog post describing the saga as "a calculated and targeted attack has been launched to spread vicious and spurious allegations against me."
