Security breach? Windows version always goes through same 'suspected' USA servers
Since less than 2 weeks in Mexico, I suddenly could not connect anymore with Tor to torproject.org, all of my email accounts, google.com, news.google.com, ixquick.com. But yes; indymedia.org, bing.com and most others.
I noticed I suddenly had new USA servers I hadn't had before, like BADASSx, Blackbox x, FordmodelA/x.
I tried to click them away, but it was like a virus and same or similar names returned at the same speed.
I used Tor for a few months before on a daily base and had never seen this type of errors.
I reinstalled from the torproject.org website (the usb one with pidgin), but always the same sites come back with the same connection problems. Also there is some file about settings, but it just looks ok and doenst have the names of these servers mentioned as favorite.
Accidently I installed Linux as second OS a week ago on my notebook and was very surprised that Tor just worked as before and having everytime other servers (only yesterday I saw one of these servers showing up and clicked it away to be sure, what went ok without problem).
So I dont understand how it is possible:
- With windows tor doesn't work for me anymore and goes through these obliged strange servers;
- With Linux there -still- is no problem with the Tor install and I dont get these servers from the same location in Mexico.
Then everyone can start a Tor server + its known that some scrupulous countries do, next to possible USA gov involvement in some. Then for Mexico the USA has a recent even stronger strategy and cooperation for security control, while we were at that time in a personal extreme delicate situation with USA-officials for political work.
