Privoxy and Java Re: Building tracking system to nab Tor

Privoxy routes DNS through TOR.
Question: does Java in a browser run through the browser's IP stack? If so, its DNS packets would go through the SOCKS proxy and Privoxy, then TOR. Right?

Well, first, this is just the normal exit node exposure of tor.

The exit node in your circuit gets to see the raw communication
between you and your destination. If you are using an SSL channel
(SSH, https, etc) then nothing is a problem. Otherwise, the exit node
can do things like spy on usernames and passwords, etc.

There are already sites that modify the HTML of web pages going
through them -- I've had scripts munged on some sites, for example --
and this is just another case of that.

Now, I believe tor allows you do exclude nodes from ever being used as
exit nodes.
