SSH over Tor the really, really easy way

Friday, April 18th, 2008

1) If you’re on Windows, download this and skip to Step 3. Mac, Linux, and Unix users download the source code for connect.c
2) Compile it. On most systems, the command would be: gcc connect.c -o connect
3) Add this to your ssh command: -o ProxyCommand=”connect -S localhost:9050 %h %p”
For example, I could use this command to connect to Silence is Defeat over Tor:
ssh -o ProxyCommand=”connect -S localhost:9050 %h %p” silenceisdefeat.com

And that’s it… Pretty easy. More info can be found here.

Spokeo: Taking “Stalking” to a New Dimension

Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

And you thought Facebook would attract stalkers. Imagine a service that shows people every move you make on Facebook, MySpace, Digg, YouTube, Amazon, Flickr, StumbleUpon, Friendster, Last.fm, and over a dozen other services at the same time but in one easy-to-stalk place. Spokeo, a recently launched Web 2.0 service that bills itself as a “hyper-aggregator”, does just that.

No need to log into thirty different websites to track your ex-boyfriend – Spokeo will do it for you! Start by giving it the username and password to your GMail account (not at all implying this is a good idea), and Spokeo will automatically show you all of your friends and all of your friends’ accounts on other services. Think your ex-boyfriend might have an account on sites that you don’t know about? Problem solved. Need more Stalk Data on your friends? Just give it more login credentials for the other websites you have accounts on… it’ll do the work.

Of course, when Spokeo’s servers are compromised, the attacker will have ALL of your login credentials for just about every account you have.
Spokeo says they don’t store your passwords, but since they don’t use SSL, they can’t stop others from sniffing the login credentials you give them.
