JonDo 00.15.004 IP changer with Bitcoin, connection manipulation protection and higher efficiency
The Hacker News

JonDos publishes a new version of the JonDo-Software, an IP changer and IP anonymization program, that you can use for anonymous surfing in the Internet with high security anonymous proxy servers.

What is new?
JonDo now integrates Bitcoin as additional payment method for the JonDonym Premium services: For every new payment, a new random Bitcoin address is generated. This hides against third parties for what a customer pays. Additionally, all data about the payment proccess are deleted after completion in order to fulfill even the highest privacy requirements. But of course, even if the identity of a buyer was known, neither JonDos nor the JonDonym operators could see what he/she does in the JonDonym system.

Moreover, a stability protection against connection manipulations has been developed: In some countries, especially those in the middle east, HTTPS/SSL connections get manipulated by the resprective providers. Using a man-in-the-middle-attack, they aim to annihilate the encryption of web connections. Apparently, this is especially done on standard web ports like 80 and 443, while other ports remain untouched. Such manipulations may not uncover JonDonym connections, but block them, however. JonDo may now recognize such manipulations and then automatically connects to JonDonym service using alternative, non-manipulated ports.

The new software version furthermore provides a more efficient upload protocol and a better automatic protection against Premium services that miscount stored data volume. Such a protection is useful, as the JonDonym services are provided by different, independent organizations. Therefore, JonDo has to explicitly protect against attacks by these individual providers. The program also contains many enhancements in details and error corrections.

What is JonDo?
JonDo is an open source and free-of-charge program for Windows, Linux and MacOS X. It hides the user's IP adress behind an anonymous IP address. In contrast to other anonymizers (VPNs, anonymous proxy servers), the user's anonymity stays protected even against the providers (operators) of the anonymous IP address.
