What is the Sybil attack? Is this a term that is well defined with Tor?

Looks like someone trying to mass control exit nodes and sniff away.

It's defined as:

In a Sybil attack, the attacker subverts the reputation system of a network service by creating a large number of pseudonymous identities and uses them to gain a disproportionately large influence.

Basically running a large number of network nodes (relays, exits) to analyze traffic and stuff.

I'm not too skilled at interpreting the information from that email. Are these nodes associated with Cipherpunk Labs? What does the WHOIS info about these IPs suggest about the entity behind these new nodes?
