[tor-talk] [OT] shocking incident in software incident (Bob)



 Bob, with respect, stop. Have you ever considered the reason why they're closing down and not paying anyone is because the company is absolutely broke? It's a very common occurrence in economics for a business to appear booming and fluid to the public, but have no money in actuality. Yeah, it sucks. No jobs and no warning is pretty shit, but sometimes this happens. The people should be instantly planning to look for another job and pursue action later, not pursue action now and then complain because their lawsuit fails and they're homeless.

>Hello,
>I?m not sure what the answer to your question about regular Tor is.  When it comes to Obfsproxy changing the 586 byte size, it?s to evade filters that use that to help block Tor.  The other packet length fluctuations would indicate that Obfsproxy makes the sizes of packets different so that it?s very difficult for a Deep packet inspection unit to fingerprint packet size and block Tor.
