I second this for official investigation and high-level communication with the github.io folks.

I agree this link is fishy. Or phishy as the kids say these days. :-)

A very old version of Tor Browser at least. I don't even have version 8.0.2 around to compare it to.

To the extent this is a scam, those who are anti-privacy should have their privacy removed and they should be exposed.

hiro: can you confirm whether this is a legitimate link and just out of date versus a fake one?

I think the former is correct but it would be good to clarify and either update or retire if not to avoid confusing users.

This is a not updated site from the Tor project. The code is here: https://github.com/thetorproject/gettor

We can't remove the repo yet but I just changed the source fro github pages to be created from master instead of the gh-pages branch.
