Re: [tor-talk] [GetTor] Simple way of getting Tor countering TorProject.org and its mirrors censorship using the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine

The problem with this of course is that you need to trust a third party: The 
Internet Archive. Unless you have some checksums of binaries or - much better 
of course - the Tor developer's PGP keys. If you have some way of verifying 
what you download, this circumvention method might be a good idea. But if not, 
it's a little bit risky. Especially since the Internet Archive's webserver 
does not enforce HTTPS. That's one more way to screw up and get 
man-in-the-middle attacked.
