What is Tor?

Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security ..........


I personally use this at home

adroth:
Thanks for sharing. Will move this to the IT board once you get to 5 posts so that you can continue to shepherd this discussion

kugmo:

i would caution Tor users that it will be slower than the usual browser you are used to like IE , Chrome , FF etc due to the nature of its distributed network

if i have other appropriate topics for the forum i would certainly share them, i am also here to learn and be educated on the ongoing military modernization of the AFP, i am also interested in helping thru donations or in any form to whatever this forum will support, i missed the last bay area/US donation to the KIG on the old Timawa forum if i am not mistaken

again thanks !

kugmo:
pls update your Tor browser

This release features an important security update to Firefox and contains, in addition to that, an update to NoScript (2.9.5.2).

The security flaw responsible for this urgent release is already actively exploited on Windows systems. Even though there is currently, to the best of our knowledge, no similar exploit for OS X or Linux users available the underlying bug affects those platforms as well. Thus we strongly recommend that all users apply the update to their Tor Browser immediately. A restart is required for it to take effect.

Tor Browser users who had set their security slider to "High" are believed to have been safe from this vulnerability.
