theasker
Hi, knows anybody a way to have more than three relays in the tor browser? Would be nice if you tell me how because I dont find a way in the internet.
Mathilde
theasker: no. tor chooses the guards itself and the numbers. Usually you are just connected to one guard at a time
theasker
Mathilde: Its a pitty. Thanks for answer!
Mathilde
theasker: no problem.

do not use pdf.js for near future; exploit in the wild.
user1234
can it unmask tor users?
meejah
probably? (not sure on specifics)
TvdW
meejah: same thing that was revealed a few weeks ago? or something new?
meejah
it's remote js injection, at least
no, same thing
         

cacahuatl
the pdfjs thing is patched, upgrade to the latest tor browser if you haven't.

Mathilde: I think theasker was referring to the Tor visualization tool in the Tor Browser. Circuits are three hops long and I think he was asking to have longer circuits.
meejah
ah! great, thanks cacahuatl
cacahuatl
The exploit, at least.
And it was a same-origin policy violation, tl;dr - if you let someone run javascript they could grab files off of your computer with it.

hi
really
Anyone around?
ryonaloli_
yes
really
ryonaloli ... are you a robot?
OK I guess not.
ryonaloli_
i don't know. last i checked, i was powered by food, not AA batteries
really
Wondering if UPP / Mirc is best or is there a better or more secure IRC client?
ryonaloli_
mirc is really, really not secure
use hexchat or something
really
hm ok
Well I'm using WinDoze 7 right now anyway so why bother haha
Checking out hexchat's site now actually
Interested in connecting to OFTC via Tor ... not sure how yet
arma
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorifyHOWTO/XChat#HexChatWindowsUnix might get you closer
man, that wiki page is not as useful as it could be
"you can configure your irc client to use the tor client that's included in tor browser. just set your socks5 proxy to localhost port 9150."
that should get you started. it doesn't cover all the more complicated things, like how you might want to use encryption between your irc client and the irc network (you should want to do this even if you're not using tor)
really
I don't have a socks5 proxy
or encryption between
ryonaloli_
you can set up encryption by configuring your client to use ssl, and using port 6697 (instead of 6667 which is the non-ssl version)
really
OK so SSL is built-in to Hexchat or do I need to set that up separately?
I shouldn't even be using Windows probably. I was using CentOS but everyone here seems to be Debian happy ... I was disappointed with Debian when I tried to install it recently (not sure which version) because I could not figure how to login as root
ryonaloli_
you just need to turn it on
really
oh ok
I was having problems because this laptop is using Nvidia and Intel drivers that did not seem to be able to support any screen resolutions besides 800x600 etc.
I tried adding some line to grub.conf about blacklisting noveau drivers etc ... now I can't even get anything but a black screen with a - that stays there forever on CentOS
ryonaloli_
that issue was with centos or debian?
really
Installed CentOS 6.6 ...
Debian issue was not being able to figure out how to login as root.
I uninstalled Debian weeks ago
I think it was Wheezy
         

ryonaloli_
you can't log in as root by default i believe
you have to use sudo as your normal user to get root, otherwise while installing, choose advance install whicih will let you select a password for root itself
really
ha, there's another issue ... I was reading documentation on sudoers file for CentOS/RHEL and could not figure out how to add sudo user
Why are people using Debian instead of other distros?
ryonaloli_
because debian has a lot of documentation, has a solid package manager (dpkg) with a large repository, and supports most programs
it's also very stable, which makes it predictable
really
hmmm
Yeah CentOS seems to have a large community but a lot of the answers are half-ass
Peng
90% of the time the reason people use Debian, or CentOS, or any other distro, is "it's popular and I like it"
really
Documentation seems to always assume a level of competency higher than I have ... what is the point of writing docs that only the writer and a few elites undersatnd?
velope
this doesn't seem to be specifically about tor any more
ryonaloli_
well debian is more community based
really
Yes Peng but I mean what is a GOOD reason/s to use Debian
ryonaloli_
yeah, velope is right. let's continue this in #nottor
really
OK
Are you sure we were better off in #nottor ?
looks like they want to talk about beating cops or whatever
This IS about Tor ... about accessing IRC via Tor
OMG why is it that red text seems to jump off of the page like 3D?
my eyes are going buggy
velope
sure, but not abou which distro is better, or how to become roo
really
ok, granted
velope
(also, in #nottor just keep talking over the bullsh*t until you distract them)
really
I figure though one topic is related to another ... i.e. where should I begin? Getting better hardware? Using a better OS? Then getting a better IRC client? Then ... I think you see what I mean
haha velope.
I just installed Perl and Python, now HexChat
velope
aeiouwhy: fix your client or connection to keep from reconnecting so frequently
really
yeah that is annoying.
I can't seem to get HexChat to allow me to make an entry for OFTC ... keeps saying newserver/6667 ... I hit edit, then type irc.oftc.net/6697 but it will not save. WTF
OK, I just had to click the whitespace below the entry to save. Got it
bigfondue
thats the most annoying thing about hexchat
really
no dice ... error : Connection failed (self signed certificate in certificate chain.? (19))
Looking up irc.oftc.net
* Connecting to irc6.geo.oftc.net (206.12.19.242:6697)
gave me that error massage < ah, I need a good massage.
uhhh, message.
slackie
(Action) hi there \o
really
Anyone here know how to set up TeamSpeak or TeamTalk over Tor?
Brownout
they are udp based iirc
L0rD`
yeah ts3 is udp based, ts2 was tcp based, either way socks is not supported. I would recommend Jitsi through OSTN for Voip.
Stevko
What about mumble?
L0rD`
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorifyHOWTO/Mumble
dorgette
Run a private mumble server people can connect over tor. 90% fine
teamspeak does not respect your freedom

hello
cmajor
Hey
nettezzz
I'd like to ask for one thing .. which I probably already answered for myself :P
cmajor
Maby i don't know either, so tell me :)
nettezzz
i have some VPS with IPS that I trust to so I was always using a SOCKS (ssh -D ...) and configured firefox to use local socks proxy at localhost:65535 ... now I hardened my VPS and installed tor service there so I suppose I'll use -L to forward from there
but I have slight difficulties to reconfigure a local tor browser to not start his services but use this locally forwarded one
cmajor
srry can't help you with that, first time here for me and it's really quiet atm...
i'm n00b :p
nettezzz
omg
