Security breach in Tor

Old version of Tor is obsolete, If you use Tor, you're cautioned to update now due to a security breach.…sg00161.html

Tor fixes a regression introduced in that could prevent relays from guessing their IP address correctly. It also fixes several minor potential security bugs. People running Tor as a relay should upgrade:

And this is old news, why is this not fixed?

What about DNS?

„The only protocols which OperaTor anonymizes are HTTP and HTTPS“

It does not use socks, meaning DNS queries are not sent through Tor? Therefore anyone sniffing packets originating from the computer can distinguish which sites are being browsed using OperaTor?

Pls update OperaTor

I'm just wondering if you can integrate the newest stable version of Tor to the new Opera 10.50? That would be better :D But this OperaTor is still good

Hi, Thanx for this great

Hi, Thanx for this great program. Works great. Though i have a question. The setup i use for normal surfing is Opera+firewall and by testing ports they seem to be invisible. When i use operaTor with the same firewall setting from the same computer and test open ports with same website, ports are reported to be visible though it is mentioned it might be open. How operaTor goes around my firewall? Is there any setup i have not done correctly? Thanx for the help. regards

Registers in Windows Firewall


thank you for all your work. It is now threatened, though, since the new version (3.5) registers to the Windows Firewall, while 3.4 doesn't. This means OperaTor is unusable anywhere where you don't have administrator rights, which I guess will be in most of the cases. I don't know how you could fix this though.

Operator Enable proxy server issue question

@Archetwist: Operator in the ‚Enable proxy servers‘ mode no longer works for me from approx January 26th 2010 onwards. It had been working great up till then. I have tried Operator in both older and latest releases and on different PCs, reset modems/switches etc. same issue. I have scanned for trojans/jackers and found none. Operator does work well without ‚Enable proxy servers‘ checked, as do other browsers. It seems to either be a port issue or Tor network has problems servicing Australia or restrictions latest filters perhaps? Messages on pages are „404, This is Privoxy 3.0.6 on username-PC (xxx.x.x.x), port 8118, No such domain, Your request for http://xxxx could not be fulfilled, because the domain name could not be resolved.“ Any advice or config/port change info is appreciated. Thanks for a great program
