Operation: Rotten Onion

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by droW kcaB, Dec 28, 2011.

    Ahem.. greetings all anons across the cyber world! I would like to introduce an idea that I have thoroughly discussed with another anon I have recently come into contact with. The anon known as "Theblackprince" has showed me how to keep much more anonymous across the web while surfing. It is called "TOR Project." Let me give you a brief outline of what the project is and why we need it from the website itself. For more information on how it works please visit "" To help out the cause we gratefully appreciate if you spread the word among other anons you have met! If you have any questions we are glad to answer. :)


    Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. Tor provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy.
    Individuals use Tor to keep websites from tracking them and their family members, or to connect to news sites, instant messaging services, or the like when these are blocked by their local Internet providers. Tor's hidden services let users publish web sites and other services without needing to reveal the location of the site. Individuals also use Tor for socially sensitive communication: chat rooms and web forums for rape and abuse survivors, or people with illnesses.
    Hidden services

    Tor also makes it possible for users to hide their locations while offering various kinds of services, such as web publishing or an instant messaging server. Using Tor "rendezvous points," other Tor users can connect to these hidden services, each without knowing the other's network identity. This hidden service functionality could allow Tor users to set up a website where people publish material without worrying about censorship. Nobody would be able to determine who was offering the site, and nobody who offered the site would know who was posting to it. Learn more about configuring hidden services and how the hidden service protocol works.

    Staying anonymous

    Tor can't solve all anonymity problems. It focuses only on protecting the transport of data. You need to use protocol-specific support software if you don't want the sites you visit to see your identifying information. For example, you can use Torbutton while browsing the web to withhold some information about your computer's configuration.
    Also, to protect your anonymity, be smart. Don't provide your name or other revealing information in web forms. Be aware that, like all anonymizing networks that are fast enough for web browsing, Tor does not provide protection against end-to-end timing attacks: If your attacker can watch the traffic coming out of your computer, and also the traffic arriving at your chosen destination, he can use statistical analysis to discover that they are part of the same circuit.

  2. With threats from acts such as sopa and acta arising it is important to keep ourselves anonymous !

    anonymity is our weapon and allows us to be free I have created this thread with fellow anons to disscuss how we can keep anonymous while on and offline with the over all goal being a censor free Internet.

    Here are some useful links to help those who care:


    Join the dark heart of the web and fight for your internet freedom

    Please comment and debat we are open to both new comers and happily will take vetrans we want to start networking with fellow anons and together make a better cyber world

    You have got to come up with a better name.
  7. droW kcaB Member

    I agree can you suggest a better name for the operation? Help will be gratefully appreciated!

    will give it some thought.
    but if the problem is is that TOR is exotic and scary already,
    calling it rotten fruit won't help.

    Anons have been using TOR for years, right?

    Ixquick is really easy to use, and compliments your browser bar. If you like to keep various tabs open, simply use the drop-down menu, and select it for proxy browsing in that tab only! Pretty cool; you can conventionally browse and proxy browse simultaneously.
  15. droW kcaB Member

    Yes I have heard about this, but making it clearer for every anon to understand what the actual project is and how it helps. No one wants to use something complex. They want simple while exceeding the expectations of the users. If you visit the site it shows brief summaries of what each user usually wants to know before using!

    OP are you new around here? Tor is a nice sock, but it's not the best sock, and yes you can be traced using to use a tunnel.

    also please be aware that websites can and do reject proxy traffic, test it, go to make a post on any subject by type in tavistock, you will get an insta, put on your best sock and try to get back on...good luck with that. We need our sky/web net up and operating so we do not depend on ISPs anymore..for anything. I wonder how they're coming with that?

    OP, Anons have been using this for years. If you'd searched WWP, you would have seen this is VERY old news.
    Proxy condom question.

    I'll admit. I'm a new, and not as experienced on the interweb as the lot of you. I keep hearing one thing though when refering to scilon sites. "Wear your proxy condoms"
    so.. I downloaded "tor" from firefox and installed it (I believe it goes into affect asap, so I don't need to turn it on and off all the time)

    Is this a good way to hide my info from the sites I'm visiting, or do I need a better program.

    Re: Proxy condom question.

    Rather than asking questions, I recommend the TOR browser bundle (firefox version). Run to unzip, click on the onion icon to run a separate browser with all correct settings.

    I see that this is very old news, but still the fact that people use it does not mean others can post threads spreading the software around. Don't you think? No one says it's illegal to do so.

    Sure, you can tell people about TOR. I was just saying that proxies - and TOR was the popular old one - are a part of anonymous culture. So, it's like posting about how you just discovered high-speed internet. I am not trying to be mean, I am just pointing out that TOR and other proxy choices are quite commonplace knowledge. Have you ever heard the meme: behind 7 proxies? It's from 2007:

    Personally, I prefer the TOR Browser package. It contains a Firefox variant called Aurora in a self-contained package, can run off a USB drive if you're at a public machine and because of the separate browser, you always know whether or not you're covered. My only complaint about it is it is a bit tricky to get it to use a static IP address if you want to do that, such as if you're torifying apps and have to put a port in a config file (such as to use nmap over TOR). Similarly, even SOCKS-aware apps generally want a port, and the default configuration sets one randomly.

    It's a small enough problem, though.

    I'm going to quote an Anon who posted on my very first thread. They said something you can use if you wish, although I have not a clue who said it.

    Yeah, it's in my sig but it is a good piece of advice.

    I know your not trying to be mean. Pshh... trust me if anyone was being mean I would notice first.

    I like it man. Props to the random anon who posted it.
  29. I think that it is both acceptable and productive for young (and new fag) anons to meet at WWP and discuss anonymity, security and privacy.

    This thread now makes the young/new fags aware that four years is a long time in Internet terms and that WWP is about four years old.

    So? Two points:

    1. All regular and veteran WWP Members are fully educated about security and anonymity issues.

    2. There is probably a need for the young and new anons to get themselves educated to the best possible practice with digital anonymity, privacy and security. There is nothing wrong with these young anons doing that here.

    Carry on. I think this is a good thread!

Glad to see some post and and some positive feed back i am aware that TOR may be "old news " to some but this was really to help newcomers not every one has been exposed to the interent as others, and this was kinda a way to introduce myself to wwp. Many thanks droW kcaB starting the thread up with me and alot of thanks to the MODS and others who have been helpful. I hope to help add to the cummunity and help towards the cause.

    Educated, to the extent of their tech expertise and comfort level.

    All regulars and vets know about TOR.
    Most have used it at least once.
    Some use it frequently.
    Some actually read the manual, and the warnings about "default settings".
    Some understand how to change the "default settings" and know which ones to change.
    Some have gone to the trouble and effort of doing that, and use TOR exclusively for safety.
    Some do all that, but aren't satisfied with TOR, and also use VPN services.
    Some use a VPN server with a not-trivially-traceable anonymous papertrail.
    Some use multiple VPN servers and randomly route traffic through different paths.
    Some do this, and expire their passwords monthly/weekly, never reuse and never forget.
    Some won't tell you what they do, and good luck guessing. :)

    If you're at the top, consider yourself already well educated.
    Most Internet users have NFI what TOR is or why they want an onion in their computer.

    There's also a need for old and old anons to get themselves better educated, as their needs and technical competence change. Skills get rusty, new threats appear, old threats die. Fear of "not being smart at computer??" hopefully only diminishes with time.
