Publishers Description
Advanced Onion Router is a client for TOR network and is intended to be an improved alternative for Tor+Vidalia+Privoxy bundle for Windows users.

It is able to "force" a program and its plugins to use the Tor proxy regardless of its configured proxy settings.

What's New in Version (See full changelog)

  • [tor-] Avoid read-from-freed-memory and double-free bugs that could occur when a DNS request fails while launching it. Fixes bug 6480; bugfix on
  • [tor-] Avoid an uninitialized memory read when reading a vote or consensus document that has an unrecognized flavor name. This read could lead to a remote crash bug. Fixes bug 6530; bugfix on
  • [tor-] Try to leak less information about what relays a client is choosing to a side-channel attacker. Previously, a Tor client would stop iterating through the list of available relays as soon as it had chosen one, thus finishing a little earlier when it picked a router earlier in the list. If an attacker can recover this timing information (nontrivial but not proven to be impossible), they could learn some coarse-grained information about which relays a client was picking (middle nodes in particular are likelier to be affected than exits). The timing attack might be mitigated by other factors (see bug 6537 for some discussion), but it's best not to take chances. Fixes bug 6537; bugfix on 0.0.8rc1.
  • new hot keys: 'Hide all intercepted applications' and 'Un-hide and resume hidden applications' (they are mutually exclusive: when one is pressed, it is unregistered and the other is registered)

  • new options on the 'System' page: 'Hide all intercepted applications' (HotkeyHideAll), 'Pause hidden applications' (HotkeyHideAll) and 'Un-hide and resume hidden applications' (HotkeyRestoreAll)
  • geoip_c.h was updated with GeoIPCountryWhois.csv released on August 8th

TOR can be difficult to setup and use but offers CIA, Mossad, FSB/GRU, SIS/MI6 type anonymity.
