TechReviewAl writes: Technology Review reports that the Chinese government has for the first time targeted the Tor anonymity network. In the run up to in China's "national day" celebrations, the government started targeting the sites used to distribute Tor addresses and the number of users inside China dropped from tens of thousands to near zero.
