1. Torpark is not made by the good people who made Tor. It is also not endores
by the Tor-developers. It is made by a third party who packages together
existing seperate products. Torpark is simply a pack of other tools.
2. Please try the actual tools included seperately and see if
this "Win32.Trojan.Agent" is reported. By this I mean that you should:
- Download and install Tor.
- Download and install Privoxy or Polipo
- Download and install Firefox Portable.
...and see if the same Trojan.Agent is reported.
You can make a simple bat file start.bat like this:
start "Tor" /DTor /MIN tor.exe -f torrc.ini
start "Polipo" /DPolipo /MIN polipo-20060920.exe -c polipo.ini
..which basically does the exact same job as Torpark (No, this is not my batch
file, it's from a project called "TorParkAlternative-18.104.22.168", but where oh
were did this project go? I don't know, and nobody but nobody seems to be
talking. But the point is simply that "Torpark" does nothing more than this
batch file: It installs other peoples seperate products and starts them
combined - using a binary .exe file. Why? I don't know why. I am not the
Torpark developer, so I can't tell you. But I can tell you that you can do
exactly the same thing WITHOUT an .exe file.
We KNOW FOR A FACT that if you start the Torpark .exe in version 22.214.171.124, as
in C:\Torpark\torpark.exe , with the switch /DEADBEEF you DO get a black
cross with Cult of the Dead Cow symbols. No, this is not a "conspiracy
theory", it's there, Torpark does includes a black cross with cult-symbols,
you can check it out for yourself and verify this all by yourself.
It must also be mentioned that the fact Cult of the Dead Cow made
So what you should try is to uninstall Torpark and install the products
included in that bundle one by one, and then see if the "Win32.Trojan.Agent"
shows up. If does then the problem may be your firewall, or something else
has installed a trojan, or Torpark left behind a trojan. It it doesn't then
it's Torpark itself which includes a trojan or is wrongly identified as a
911 inside job. (Democrats + Republicans) == CFR
