What is a Tor Relay? We use Tor to access our website and to publish to our blog, which is blocked inside of our country. -- Iranian human rights activist Tor is a service that helps you to protect your anonymity while using the Internet. Tor is comprised of two parts: software you can download that allows you to use the Internet anonymously, and the volunteer network of computers that makes it possible for that software to work. When you use the Tor software, your IP address remains hidden and it appears that your connection is coming from the IP address of a Tor exit relay, which can be anywhere in the world. There are many reasons you might use Tor, including keeping websites from tracking you and your family members, using websites or services which are blocked in your country (for example, getting around the Great Firewall of China), and maintaining anonymity when communicating about socially sensitive information, such as health issues or whistleblowing.

Sniffer hijacks secure traffic from unpatched iPhones Almost anyone can snoop the secure data traffic of unpatched iPhones and iPads using a recently-revised tool, a researcher said today as he urged owners to apply Apple's latest iOS fix. The nine-year-old bug was quashed Monday when Apple issued a patch for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and third- and fourth-generation iPod Touch. If those devices aren't patched, attackers can easily intercept and decrypt secure traffic -- the kind guarded by SSL, which is used by banks, e-tailers and other sites -- at a public Wi-Fi hotspot, said Chet Wisniewski, a security researcher with U.K.-based Sophos. "This is a nine-year-old bug that Moxie Marlinspike disclosed in 2002," said Wisniewski in an interview today.

It's a blatant invasion of privacy for companies to do this, but at least we have methods of fighting back—one of which is Tor. Tor stands for The Onion Router. It operates by donated bandwidth from its users.
