toralf
my tor server is currently under attack - just me or somebody else too ?
arma
what sort of attack?
toralf
network attack (34 MBIt/sec from few servers) - was just inform by my ISP about that
so nothign too much worry about, was just curious
I cann't login into it and the monitoring from my ISP tells me, that neither DirPort nor ORPort are reachable any longer - ok, the last time it took 2 hours and it was over ... *shrug*
arma
yuck. is it an exit relay?
toralf
arma: yes : nickname : zwiebeltoralf
last attack was in April
arma
wonder if somebody pissed off somebody else
who doesn't know what tor is, but has a small botnet
toralf
something in that direction I do assume too
notbutthead
iirc someone else's server was under attack a few days ago. i think it was apx
probably not related, but ... who knows
arma
has globe.torproject.org basically stopped working for other people too?
         

kvm234
arma: https://globe.torproject.org/ does not load for me either
nicoo
arma: Works for me, over Tor
(including looking for marylou, and getting the result I was expecting)

anyone using tor as a standalone proxy on a network?
hello hello? anyone home?
ncl
...most tor installations?
Chocolate_Chip
javi404, I am
I use both the Debian tor package as a proxy (controled through arm) and the Tor Browser Bundle
javi404
Chocolate_Chip: is there any guide to a decent config?
i have been having problems lately with time outs
not sure if its the network
or my config
i can post it in you want to take a look at it.
my config is default, but i did some tuning to it long ago, with something I saw in a blog.
ncl
were there any more details about 11BX1371?
arma
no, other than that we found them mentioned in one of those internet puzzle things

AndroUser
hello
what does tunnel through google use?
scfith
anyone have good guides on connecting to irc in tor? I have failed to find anything useful so far
AndroUser
android bits?
velope
usually i am not thrilled to recommend the unmaintained wiki.torproject.org, but that would be kind of an obvious place to check, and i bet some of it is even correct
AndroUser
glad to see a response velope
velope there is a problem with the possibility of screen capture
when the tor nodes are displayed a spy can see my endpoints
arma
screen capture by some malicious software running locally?
AndroUser
these compartmebtalized projects do things in scope not accounting for exploitatiom from `friendly` neighbors
another binarh say any of 59 running
arma yes like the os itself even
arma
yeah. don't have any bad software running.
screen capture is only one of your many worries.
scfith
fine, I found a few useful infos on the torproject.org wiki so thanks,
AndroUser
while reviewing source code I find screencapture software in things with no need for it
also I have it in mind to have a small braille interface
using screenshot as background is an old simple prank
and this prank can be used on anything to expose tor
arma
shouldn't you be more worried about the url bar?
         

AndroUser
it appliea to anything arma
anything in gui
now if say a small group works with me on it these problems can be fixed
take the first step
arma
no, i mean, if you're worried about screen capture, the set of tor relays you use for that one circuit is way less interesting than what website you're going to
AndroUser
yes arma it is the endpoint
so if I visit a website say yahoo.com and yahoo mail has a screen capture tor is exposed
arma
you're on android, yes? this is why you want orfox.
basically, you need all the things tor browser does for you. otherwise you could be screwed.
AndroUser
why is that?
android isnt too much different from using any other computer
all of the same security measures apply
arma
AndroUser
screen capture in any of say 59 running binaries.
arma
all of these fixes that tor browser does to firefox
what browser are you using on your android right now, for tor?
AndroUser
orbrowser
arma
ok. read through the tor browser design doc, for all the things it does for you
there is no tor browser for android right now, but orfox is getting a lot closer
AndroUser
I don`t want to eat plastic food
qwerty1
has this whole thing been a troll
AndroUser
it is called orweb
arma
yeah. orweb is the past. orfox is the fuutre!
the future, too.
qwerty1
if they can do a screencap and send it somewhere bad they can surely do other things
AndroUser
goes right along with orbot
firefox has built in listeners
qwerty1
arr
AndroUser
why use firefox for tor?
arma
please go read tor browser design document.
AndroUser
no
qwerty1
btw does anyone happen to know what the newest version of orfox is?
arma
kvm234
when do you use orbot and when do you use orfox?
qwerty1
hmm ok
arma
i don't have an android, to be clear. but if i were wanting to get good anonymity on android, i would not ever use orbot. as i understand it, it's like hooking up your vanilla firefox to tor.
(ok, not quite that bad, but pretty close)
kvm234
ok so orbot is kind of alike a Tor box, and orfox is like Tor Browser
arma
right.
kvm234
great. Ostel looks like an interesting project as well
scfith
(Action) slaps scfith around a bit with a large fishbot
AndroUser2
how can google be removed
why is fdroid any better?
ironsoldier claims to not like google on his phone
google has advertising trackers
ok so it makes tor unusable is that correct?
same sort of thing screen capture can do without need for screen capture.
but usually these things that offer solutions become trackers also later
