Hi,today I found the tor network status update script for my TNS site http://torstatus.blutmagie.de broken. The Perl code feeding the underlying MySQL db relies on a unique router name for the tor server being queried. Since some hours besides my own tor node there's listed a second tor node in China named "blutmagie" in the descriptor table. It appears to be using a Chinese dialup address. Oops!
Fixing the TNS Perl code was not very hard, but what may be the reason some idiot in China choses the same router name like me?
the real and only blutmagie tor node from Germany :-) http://torstatus.kgprog.com/router_detail.php?FP=5c3ec3dc1cd0e64016ba7c6ed308c98379645967 fake blutmagie node from China: http://torstatus.kgprog.com/router_detail.php?FP=891ba086deeabad7ffb83f5541395328629cadc6 Olaf
