So far, we’ve marked 77 tickets with BugSmashFund. As of today, 56 of those tickets have been closed, and 21 of them are still in progress. With this reserve, we’ve been able to fix bugs and complete necessary maintenance on core tor, bridgedb, Snowflake, and Metrics, as well as complete the Tor Browser ESR 68 migration.
The bugs are coming. We just don’t know when. This August, all donations to Tor will be earmarked towards bugs and maintenance. Your contribution can help keep us on our toes and ready to respond rapidly to critical security issues.
If the Tor Project, the Tor network, and Tor Browser were to disappear, what would happen? Not only would millions of global, daily users lose access to Tor’s software, but the diverse ecosystem of privacy, security, and anti-censorship applications that rely on the Tor network would cease to function.
If you've never given to the Tor Project, we have some exciting news for Giving Tuesday. A donor has offered to match all first-time gifts, up to $20,000. So if you've never given to the Tor Project before, your gift gets matched twice. A $25 donation becomes $75.
