broken exit node

Description

Some exit node is stealing failed DNS requests and redirecting to guide.opendns.com. I don't know which one or how to find out, I suggest doing a full scan.

[I know this is probably the wrong place to report this. I won't report this outside of Tor to prevent corrolation attacks between my use of that exit node and my reporting the problem. There should be a way to report potentially sensitive Tor network problems anonymously from within Tor without needing an email address. I suggest a tracker component "Tor-Tor network".]

Taking the questions in reverse, you can anonymously report tickets on our trac. The login info is on the main page.

The opendns breaking nxdomain is a common issue for people who configure opendns but neglect to opt out of the nxdomain redirect. When you see it happen, go to vidalia's network map and look for the circuit with your destination in it.

we are working on automated scanning of misconfigured exit nodes.
