Web filter circumvention developer pays people to install


The developer of proxy software designed to defeat Web filters is offering Internet users $10 to install and run his application, as a way to raise its profile. Independent developer Bennett Haselton, creator of the Circumventor proxy software, announced Thursday that he would pay the money to people who install Circumventor, send him the URL of the proxy and keep it running for at least a week.

Haselton promotes Circumventor as a way for young people to defeat Web-filtering software at schools and libraries, but also as a tool for people living in countries that filter Web content.
