TOR is one of the anonymous systems navigation more popular in the world. Proof of this is that famous people use it to maintain their anonymity and avoid detection. However, although it is constantly updated, every few days there are new bugs that help to expose to users. Therefore, it is still developing security measures that allow avoiding errors.
The latest development in this regard has come to us from one of the last meetings that took the team of the project, where they tested a new system of generating random numbers that can increase security. The new mechanism causes two computers generate, respectively, a random number, which come together in a unique destination. Initially, the system would be impossible to crack because it is necessary to know the initial network and computers from which data have been issued.

We cannot deny that the attacks by ransomware have become extremely popular. Threats, in fact, are evolving in different ways, even to become extremely dangerous elements. For example, if a virus is detected, new options develop so that it attacks more efficiently, putting users in situations where their data are in extreme danger.

Within web browsing, the certificates are one of the most reliable tools we have at our disposal, adding an additional security layer which serves to prevent communications to be read by third parties. They are automatically installed and we just have to interact with them. Although the recent cyber-attacks have succeeded that we begin to distrust them.
Lately it has become fashionable to install infected certificates that in addition to not provide the promised security, allow other people to read encrypted content apparently. Against this background, it is necessary to obtain tools to analyze the certificates. RCC is one of them. This is a utility that analyzes them and verifies that they are benign.
