That is true to the extent that I counted myself several times and the last time I counted (this year) out of the known 1827 Tor exit nodes, 896 were marked as having "malicious" activities; it goes over the half mark on a regular basis. This data is not public (yet) but it will be soon, it's not based on Cloudflare data. I'm not the only one who has observed it either; there are reasons why both attack mitigation solution providers and end-networks filter and/or block Tor.

This is not guesswork.

Michel.
