This is a MS-focused list. Tor is designed by Unix developers, and works
best (read: most securely) on Debian. Not Windows.
You should view the archives of or-talk, and try asking there if you
can't find the answer in archives. The or-talk list has multiple threads
on known attacks to Tor. There is also a tor-relays mailing list at
torproject.org, for admins of relays.

Nothing special, general OS hardening. But again, Tor is more secure on
Unix than Windows. Also, pick a good ISP, and have a lawyer on file. :-(
