What do the words ‘Tor’ and ‘Dark Web’ mean to you? [VIDEO]

Enjoy our latest Facebook Live video featuring Sophos experts James Burchell and Greg Iddon.

In this episode, our dynamic duo reveal how well they did on our #SysAdminDay “Are you a sysadmin?” quiz, before tackling the controversial issue of Tor.

Tor, of course, is short for The Onion Router, software that’s supposed to keep you safer and more anonymous online, but that’s also used to access the infamous Dark Web, a popular haven for cybercrooks, ransomware collectors, peddlers of illegal drugs, and more.
