As far as obfs4proxy is concerned, the only thing that might trigger this is meek_lite, which Tor Browser doesn't use (yet).

comment:2 Changed 16 months ago by dcf

It's safe to assume that meek-client is affected, though in --helper mode which Tor Browser uses it's probably not. I'll redeploy the meek-server and Snowflake websocket-server and whatnot.

This is the patch I'm trying:

Happy to merge the patch for the upcoming alpha. However, I'd need it today-ish in that case. I plan to kick off the alpha build tomorrow (Jan 25) morning European time.

comment:4 Changed 16 months ago by dcf

I started a testbuild; not sure when it will finish. It's unlikely that the patch won't work, but also I think it's not urgent to get it into the next alpha.

Here is a patch. Tested with a make testbuild. Tried Moat and obfs4 in the linux-x86_64 build.

Looks good to me. Merged to master (commit 9bac5b8ddc129cc0349f1c6350f819f8ba29af94).
