On recent Tor exit point sniffing attempt

Probably you've heard about recent attempt on trying to extract useful information from Tor exit points traffics. The technical aspect of this attempt ( attack !? ) is well-known and even documented and is not something new. The point making it interesting is that gov people use Tor to route their traffic. The day I read this title on SANS it didn`t look much interesting to me as I`ve had the same experience but collecting different set of information from traffic and also trying to cover some encrypted channels like SSL protected stuff. Later I told myself "hey, is any affected by this attempt? " and guess what ? ...

Wish I could publish some of my research results too but as I`m not sure about local gov reaction I prefer to stay silent for now.
And hey, this is not the first time Iran gov is made fun of , because of their lame policies and broken infrastructures. If you follow related news, there are tons of blames against iran. I remember old BlackHat talks , exposing classified informations and maps of IT infrastructures of the country, and my personal investigations lead to even more horrible live results. But after all, who cares ?!!!
