Hello folks, back for a few minutes, then off to the servers again (5 new projects ) http://www.networkworld.com/news/2009/082809-chinese-anticensorship.html UltraSurf / GIFC is now claiming their exposed malware's violations of security and anonymity principles as a trick to fool the Chinese firewall. It would appear the only one being tricked are the users. The article fails to explain how doing all of these things has any effect on the chinese firewall, nor does it make sense on the face of it. How exactly *does* requesting military/financial/gov/edu logins assist in any way other than acting as a large blinking siren? I am mystified, that is certain. If we were able to find UltraSurf stealing your passwords or emptying your bank account, I am sure they would claim that too was just a trick for your protection. REMEMBER: There is no legitimate explanation for a proxy network turning off SSL certificate checking except to perform MITM attacks/Sniffing.
