GTK+ Recent Files Scrubber is a compact, lightweight Python script which uses GTK's RecentManager to watch for updates to all globally-available "Recently Used" lists (the ones which appear in Open dialogs and the like) and filter out anything in the folders you blacklist. Blacklist entries are hashed to make reading the blacklist not worth the effort.
Whonix is an anonymous general-purpose operating system based on Virtual Box, Debian GNU/Linux, and Tor. By design, IP and DNS leaks are impossible. Not even malware with root rights can find out the user's real IP/location, because Whonix consists of two (virtual) machines. One machine solely runs Tor and acts as a gateway, called Whonix-Gateway. The other machine, Whonix-Workstation, is on a completely isolated network. Only connections through Tor are possible.
