Operation Torpedo was a 2011 operation where the FBI compromised three different hidden services hosting child pornography, which would then target anyone who happened to access them using a network investigative technique. The NIT used a Flash application that would ping a user's real IP address back to an FBI controlled server, rather than routing their traffic through the Tor network and protecting their identity.
