Description Roozbeh Pournader 2006-12-17 06:54:37 EST
Description of problem:

Tor fixes a serious privacy bug for people who use the
HttpProxyAuthenticator config option: Tor would send your proxy auth
directly to the directory server when you're tunnelling directory
requests through Tor. Specifically, this happens when publishing or
accessing hidden services, or when you have set FascistFirewall or
ReachableAddresses and you're accessing a directory server that's not
reachable directly.
