Leak in Tor for Android (Orbot)

While performing traffic analysis on the current development version of Orbot, the official Android for Tor app, Manuel Leithner (Junior Researcher, SBA Research gGmbH) discovered that certain types of traffic (including VPN, GPS and videos) were not tunnelled through Tor. He subsequently developed a patch that enables full and enforced transparent proxying for all TCP and DNS traffic through the anonymisation service.
