Loophole works with your cable or DSL modem to allow you to bypass your company's firewall or Web filter. It works by tunnelling arbitrary data through HTTP. It also makes your Internet access confidential by encrypting all data that passes through the proxy.

Release Notes: This release supports HTTP proxies that use non-standard carriage control and/or incorrect authentication headers. It works around Java/Linux time zone bugs. A client ISO image has been added for Linux (to run the client from a CD on Linux). Rough edges have been filed off of the UI in several places. Licenses are validated more sensibly. It is now based on JDK 1.4.1_01.
Release Notes: Linux client support was added. An IP Address Alert now detects IP address changes and mails you, which is useful for DSL users that are frequently disconnected. A new Camouflage mode suppresses log files, encrypts your settings file, and stores it in an arbitrary location in order to avoid leaving a recognizable signature on your hard disk. A client ISO image also lets you run the Loophole Client from CD without any other installation. This version also features a new UI look and feel, and several bugfixes and enhancements.
