Re: Warnings on the download page

 Looks like the "Practical Onion Hacking" paper covered many features I 
was working on, as well as touching on the warez/movie/music leeches and 
the child pornography traffic. I should have released this back in August 
when I presented on it the first time :-)

The big differences are:

1) They use iptables to modify and reinject traffic, I use an embedded 
Ruby interpreter in the Tor software.

2) They perform DNS tracking, but don't actually record or cross-reference 
the data.

3) They use Flash instead of Java to obtain the real external address of 
the user.

Similarities include:

1) Web-bug injection via HTML response
2) DNS tracking via wildcard domain
3) Use of JS/Java bridge to get the internal address

Seems like two big items I need to add to decloak are Flash and the shiny 
no-proxy Java connection mode (which seems to apply to TCP sockets only).
