Multiple Vulnerabilities found in Tor, allows a remote Hacking

TOR, an implementation of second generation Onion Routing, vulnerable to multiple vulnerabilities .  The critical one of which may allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.

A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service by exploiting the vulnerability. Furthermore, a remote relay the user is directly connected to may be able to disclose anonymous information about that user or enumerate bridges in the user’s connection.
