How to improve privacy on Tor
Tor has one major weakness right now. It seems that it only connects to 3 nodes. This opens Tor up to attacks that could easily be avoided.
How to avoid it: Make Tor come up with a random number between 3 and 5 and then use that number to determine how many nodes to connect to.
One circuit could be 3, another 5, another 4. It prevents an attack from some entity using many many tor relay servers.
I believe since Tor is aimed at protecting users privacy, this is a very important feature request. I'm surprised it hasn't been implemented yet.
