So, from my understanding, Tor redirects your requests over many other tor users. Eventually, it will be actually sent over the exit node, which can basically be any computer, also mine.
I hope my understanding of Tor is correct, otherwise please correct and teach me!
I have 120 Mbit/s and 5 Mbit/s upload here, so I'm a very good candidate for an exit node, I think.
Question: Since Tor is predestinated for being used for highly illegal purposes (drugs, child pornography, counterfeit, etc.) my fear is that eventually I'm the one that acts as an exit node, held resposible for activity from someone else.
So, in this sense, how can Tor be even considered more safe and not less safe? Like I said, I really have basic knowledge about Tor, so I'm looking for some explanations, especially on safety in a legal sense.
