Tor Browser 7.0.2 is released
This release features an important security update to Tor.
We are updating Tor to version 0.3.0.9, fixing a path selection bug that would allow a client to use a guard that was in the same network family as a chosen exit relay. This release also updates HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.2.19.
Here is the full changelog since 7.0.1:
- All Platforms
- Update Tor to 0.3.0.9, fixing bug #22753
- Update HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.2.19
My guess is that the download happened right before you moved to offline mode. I just tested it with 7.0.1 and moved immediately into offline mode after start-up. The download of the update and all network requests got blocked for me.
The about-window-issue is still open, yes, see: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/10952
