Episode 25: Enter Tor


Show Notes

  • The Pirate Browser is a customized Tor browser bundle designed to bypass cencorship.  Brought to us by the same people behind The Pirate Bay, they recommend using a VPN for better privacy.
  • The Tor Project originated from the military and the intent is to make traffic harder to track.
  • A vulnerability in Firefox allowed Tor traffic to be traced anyway, so always make sure your browser bundle is up to date.
  • Tails OS is an operating system designed to be run off optical media or a USB drive.  It's designed with privacy in mind.
  • Also bear in mind that if involving oneself in illicit activities, the vulnerability increases when activity leaves cyberspace and enters the real world.
