Re: redirect to meagpass.net while using Tor

We haven't heard any reports of this problem prior to this thread (indicating that it's a fairly new node), and quite a few people so far have reported it - which makes me think it might be a pretty high bandwidth node (and subsequently more likely to get lots of traffic); so, my theory is that there is a low-uptime high bandwidth node involved here.

So, I started testing google.com exiting with various high-bandwidth exit nodes that have very little uptime, and found a hit: 'apple' (2329 86CD 9605 56CD 8053 CBEC 47C1 8908 2B34 EF09) and seen at http://trunk.torstatus.kgprog.com/router_detail.php?FP=232986cd960556cd8053cbec47c189082b34ef09 is redirecting my traffic to the same megapass.net location. There may be others, but this is probably the one you've all seen. Can we get the authorities to flag that?

For the record, I exited successfully with desync, kyirong, whistlersmother, digineol, kallio, and dumboo; these are probably okay.

His tinfoil hat is obviously not good enough :)
