Description Vincent Danen 2011-10-28 17:02:52 UTC
The Tor project has released 0.2.2.34 [1] which corrects the following flaws:

A design flaw in Tor could allow a malicious relay server to learn certain information that they should not be able to learn.  A malicious relay that a user connected to directly could learn which other relays that user is connected to directly.  Combining this with other attacks, this flaw could lead to de-anonymizing the user (CVE-2011-2768). [2],[3],[4]

In 0.2.2.34, bridges now refuse CREATE or CREATE_FAST cells on OR connections that they initiated.  Previously, relays could distinguish incoming bridge connections from client connections, creating another avenue for enumerating bridges (CVE-2011-2769). [5]

(I may be slightly off on the git commits, particular for [3] and [4] which look like they are mitigation patches for dealing with unpatched clients; I believe that that [2] is the actual fix for CVE-2011-2768).
