TBH I'm not even sure why it's still on source forge when it's clearly
in violation of TPO trademarks. Guess SF don't take that too seriously.
There's actually a number of other "Tor Browsers" besides the
/torbrowser one, namely /torproject, /toruser12 and /securitytor all
of them seem extremely dodgy and seem to be distributed on SF.
The thing that worries me is that by calling it "Tor" or "Tor Browser"
they are attempting to trick users into believing it's the same as
torproject.org's distribution of the "Tor Browser".
If these were genuine projects there's no reason why they can't call
it something else.
I'm just worried one of these might be an adversary to Tor trying to
distribute a compromised version of Tor to a particular community in
order to compromise it's user's identity.
