No, it hasn't.

The way TOR works is that each relay and exit node is ignorant of where the node they're receiving came from. Each node in the process knows the previous node and next node in the process but nothing more. All an exit node knows is the relay node that it came from. And the original sender is the one that chooses the pathing so @xXxWIRExXx 's notion that just controlling the entrance node would be sufficient is also off. The entry also just straps a layer off the package (like peeling the layers off an onion) and passes it along as indicated to the next node which is the only node capable of decrypting the next layer. A person would need to control the entry node, exit node, and every single relay (which is randomly chosen by the sender) in order to compromise a payload. I'd imagine the way the FBI hacked things was by operating illicit sites and then using exploits to get the users' browser to voluntarily send identifying information as part of its data payload.

You have to remember that Elliot is on the same wireless network that Ron's using to communicate with his servers: the one at the coffee shop. He's just sniffing local traffic. Ron connects to his servers through Tor. His servers are running the hidden service. Elliot is both in control of the nearest exit node while at the same time monitoring the output of Ron's personal computer. From that point it's just a matter of connecting the dots.

All sniffing would show is an encrypted connection to an entry node which is pretty much useless. And I don't know exactly what you mean by nearest, but that -pretty much any way you define it- has nothing to do with how exit nodes are chosen. Here is the spec, section 2.2. And again it would be the user that picks the exit node.

You're looking at what is, not what can be.

The relays are chosen by the sender, as in the original sender, not the entry node.

I watched some episodes and I plan to continue, but let's face it: a show made and exhibited by a big ass company full of rants against big ass companies. Red Pill became a product.

Season 2 is kinda slow, but still interesting. You get to see how various governments and bureaucracies deal with the aftermath of season 1.

I liked the first season overall, but the stint with the drug dealer I though was stupid and I think the second season didn't really get interesting until after the 4th or 5th episode.
