The first Spy Week starts today @Lifehacker with a bunch of interesting stories about topics related to the spy world. During the next days we will have the opportunity to improve our knowledge on different fields as e.g. sharing sensitive information over the internet or taking photographs without being noticed by other people. Moreover Lifehacker will publish some interviews with experts who share some tips and answer to every related question from the readers. For example, now, Steven Santarpia from ICORP Investigation is online and interacting with lifehackers. This week, be sure not to miss any topics about spying (+ hacking + social engineering) and visit the dedicated section into the Lifehacker website!
What about listening to Pandora or other USA IP-based online music services if you are not into the USA? There are many add-on for Firefox which can help you to use the right proxy for appearing in different places in the world but, in my experience, you can have some difficulties when you try to use them.
In fact the IPs of free proxies change frequently and sometimes you are obliged to spend a lot of time searching for the right IP of free proxies. Other times the free proxy addresses are so overcrowded that you have to wait many seconds before you can visualize webpages.
One exception is anonymoX, a simple add-on for Firefox which always works properly and assure a good connection speed. AnonymoX has two different service levels, the free basic service has fewer features but it really works properly and it’s fast.
With the free level you can choose your favourite IP exit country between USA, UK and NL. You can also decide if you prefer to stealth your web surfing using anonymoX features or the classic TOR servers. Moreover, you can change your fictional ID every times you want also while you are surfing the web.
During all our tests anonymoX was able to assure us a good surfing privacy, in particular we successfully tried to change browser id and we really appreciated the possibility of visiting .onion websites through the Tor option. Recommended!!!
