    About a week ago I was surfing with Tor 0.1.2.19 and got what appeared to be a redirect (phishing?) to a page with a yellow background saying how this guy found a Tor bug and was exploiting it and the page had a email address to get info on how this bug can be exploited for $50 US dollars. I got redirected to this page a couple times with the same message. I wish I had got a screen capture of the page, but I didn't.

    I have done all kinds of anti-malware scans, so I know it was Tor that was hacked and not my computer. Besides this has never happen previously or since, and only while I was running Tor.

    Anyone else seen or heard about this?

    Sounds like some lamer was just redirecting exit node traffic. I wouldn't worry about it. However, if you get the opportunity again, copy and paste the image here.
