Torsocks release 2.4.0

Changes

This release has several bugfixes, fixing a number of compatibility issues and crashes. It also has a couple significant behavioral changes:

  • Unrecognized syscall numbers are now allowed instead of blocked, so that torsocks doesn’t need to maintain a list of all-known syscalls, and doesn’t break when a new one is added or used. While this could theoretically lead to leaks if a new syscall is added that creates a socket, this is very rare in practice.

  • IPv6 is now disabled by default. torsocks’s ipv6 handling is less mature than its ipv4 handling, and most programs will gracefully fall back to ipv4 when we disable ipv6 altogether. It can still be enabled explicitly with --ipv6.
