Ways to break browser anonymity.

6 months ago

Taken from Decloak (decloak.net):

- If you have JAVA installed, it will try to open direct socket connection from your real IP

- If you have Quick Time, it will try to load applet with special parameter to ask your browser for direct connection

- Will try to load Microsoft Word document containing embedded image from server. This will bypass proxy and also show your real DNS server.

- Flash SWF can open direct connections, ignoring proxy settings.

- ITunes registers new protocol itms:// in the system. With default player, it will directly connect to specified URL.
