Tor Bridge Relay to Bypass Internet Censorship

February 15, 2012Mohit Kumar
Internet users in dozens of countries around the world where governments tend to look askance at freedom and civil liberties have come to rely on the Tor network for dependable, anonymous access to the Web. But those governments and some popular websites have caught on to the game and begun to make it more difficult for users to connect to the Tor network. If you live in an area with little or no Internet censorship, you may want to run a Tor relay or a Tor bridge relay to help other Tor users access an uncensored Internet.The Tor network relies on volunteers to donate bandwidth. The more people run relays, the faster and more secure the Tor network will be. To help people using Tor bypass Internet censorship, set up a bridge relay rather than an ordinary relay. Now, new version of the software include a feature that enables users to connect to one of several " bridges ," or Tor relays whose IP addresses aren't listed in the Tor directory.

The Undead  "Corporations" by Patti Galle  The Hacker News Editor " Patti Galle " share her views about Corporations in THN Magazine December Edition . We would like to share same article with our blog Readers. Enjoy the interesting read : Corporations are soulless entities possessing privileges and the rights of citizenship that actual people have; all the while not having to shoulder any of the natural responsibilities. Undead Corporations have concentrated the essence of avarice, rage and fury to form their corporate structure. And as these covetous Corporations have accumulated immeasurable wealth they have methodically utilized this wealth and power to procure, infiltrate, and seize control of the influential and powerful American government and many governments across the world vigorously fusing them into a globe-encompassing non-living aberration, now rightfully called or labeled as Corporatocracy. At present, on an ever escalating level, world governments are vi

FBI warning about Banking trojan " Gameover " Organized crooks have begun launching debilitating cyber attacks against banks and their customers as part of a smoke screen to prevent victims from noticing simultaneous high-dollar cyber heists. On Friday the FBI issued a warning about a banking trojan named Gameover. It's a new variant of Zeus, a user credential stealing malware that targets online bank users. Zeus has been around for years, and every now and then a new version with a new twist pops up. Gameover has also been implicated in Distributed-Denial-of-Service attacks that temporarily-disable bank websites to draw attention away from fraudulent transactions. Like another Zeus variant, Troj/BredoZp-GY, Gameover uses e-mail spam to propagate, and the safest way to keep Gameover away from your PC is to avoid links and file attachments that are contained in unfamiliar e-mail messages. Experts warn that any interaction with this fake NACHA link can infect your PC with

Right now the main use is running old games and software, but you might encounter it on somefreshly sold computers, motherboard setup CDs, BIOS flashing diskettes, embedded hardware and other uses. Bernd Blaauw has been hard at work, updating FreeDOS distribution to include the latest packages. Bernd writes: " In its current form this new distribution is best suited as a CD-ROM disk to install FreeDOS from onto harddisk. Sources are included.
