    Default Defeat Censorship (WebNONSense)

    Well, it lasted about as long as it could have...

    It has come to my attention that everyone's favorite internet censor 'Websense' has decided Tweleve.Org deserves to be globally censored. On installation of their web filtering software (used in libraries, government networks, even whole countries) Tweleve.org is banned by DEFAULT. Reason? They say we are a site based on "Games".

    Here is what you see when you try and surf to Tweleve:



    Now there are 2 sides to every story. On one hand, a private entity has the right to limit it's agents use of a privately owned network (say at a place of business). On another hand, any (legally adult) person has the right (and I am dead serious about this) to access the complete, uncensored Internet.

    There are some important things happening on the web right now. One of them, is the insistence by the owners of the Internet (Us ) that the Internet is indeed ours and not the corporate battlefield that the websensors and countries that censor the searches and queries of their citizens. It's happening in China as we speak. People FIGHTING to simply have a search engine they can trust. This isn't about filtering pr0n or protecting kids. Its about making money off of INTENDED disinformation to innocent people, a proven business tactic of Websense. It is this fact that forces me now to do my part:

    I want you all to have an Internet you can trust. I can't imagine any persons from China frequent this site (hello there if you do! ) but that doesn't matter. Censorship on the Internet is wrong. I grabbed a copy of the WebNONsense software and did some experiments on my network.

    Here is how it works and how you can defeat it (as well as any other censorship software):

    I won't get too technical but basically it blocks on all forms of the IP. That means that http://Tweleve.org won't work, http://IP.IP.IP.IP wont work, the binary decimal wont work, it's all blocked. So naturally some of you would say:"Use a proxy! yay!". Well this software is financed by many subscriptions from many censors and they have the money to keep up with almost ALL of the public proxies out there.. Darn. Solution? Make your own! The idea is this. You must have a machine that is free from censor programs. Let's use your home computer for example. It must have a broadband connection. It must be XP or 2000. It must be on and connected to the internet to work. You can install a kind of 'tunnel' on your machine so that you can go to the affected machine, (the censored one) and type a special address that will literally pipe your traffic through the unaffected machine (the one sitting at home) defeating the censorship. If you are in a country that is censored have a friend in an unaffected country load a proxy for you or PM me and I'll do it for you. It truly works like a charm.

    Here is how it works:

    1.Install Perl:

    Get the installer here.

    It must be installed to C:\Perl (this is the default). Accept all of the default options. Next, I accept, Next, Next, Don't check the box, Next, Next, Install, Uncheck read release notes, Finish.

    2.Install OpenSA 2.0.2 beta

    Get the installer here.

    It must be installed to C:\OpenSA (this is the default). Accept all of the default options. (If you get to a screen titled "Server Information" and it doesn't have values filled in for "Network Domain", "Server Name" and "Administrator's Email Address", just fill in these boxes with made-up random values) -when I installed it there were values already there-just leave em. The order is: Next, I accept, Next, Default Values, For all users, Complete, Finish.

    3.Install Circumventor

    Get the installer here.

    Simply save this and run the file by double clicking it.

    You have to do the steps in order. Once you open the final program a few black boxes will pop up while it does its thing, if you have a router you have to forward TCP on port 443-if you don't know how to do this a really handy webpage will open and explain how. Once it is ready, it will display a web page with details and the special URL you can take with you to the affected machine to browse free as a bird. Like it SHOULD be.

    If you have any questions at all please PM me.

    Thanks to the makers of the FREE software that makes this possible and Special thanks to Bennett Haselton for putting the pieces together and packimocity for alerting me to the issue. :P. Thanks!

    Once, almost a decade ago, I posted an essay online, using a computer at work, that some people found very controversial. They organized a letter writing campaign to the governor of Pennsylania, whose office forwarded it to my employer, in an attempt to have me fired.

    All my usage and e-mail was monitored for over 2 months before I knew about it, when I was declared a good computer citizen.

    Go, cthree!! (But will employers be able to track that peeps are using this go-around?)

    That depends on the setup and the IT department. They could never tell WHERE you browsed to but could be made aware of the address you are proxying through and know you were using a proxy. I am definately not suggesting this is a great thing to do at work as technically they have a right to limit access to the network and you are technically bound to their rules. This is a common sense call for an adult to make. Just throwing the knowledge out there. What you do with it is entirely up to you. To be clear, there will be a record of you visiting a proxy. What there will NOT be is a record of what sites you visited through the proxy (only on the machine being used as a proxy-say the home one-will there be a log). So- use common sense! If the boss is coming- MINIMIZE!!

    Depending on the filtering system they are using it could be acting as a proxy itself which means you wont be able to get out of the building without having it set as the proxy.

    I personally want to see as much pr0n as possible
