In following paper (Link to the paper) we read:
"combining Tor and Bitcoin creates an attack vector for the deterministic and stealthy man-in-the-middle attacks. A low-resource attacker can gain full control of information flows between all users who chose to us Bitcoin over Tor. In particular the attacker can link together user’s transactions regardless of pseudonyms used, control which Bitcoin blocks and transactions are relayed to the user and can delay or discard user’s transactions and blocks."
On the other hand, in this answer(Link to the answer) we read:
"in order to maximize your privacy you should run your lightning node on TOR even though the routing of payments is a source based Onionrouting similar to TOR."
According to the paper that is addressing an attack on the Bitcoin, How secure is using TOR in Lightning Network ?
Does use of TOR in LN increases privacy by hiding the IP address WITHOUT increasing the the proposed man-in-the-middle attack in the paper ?
