[liberationtech] Appelbaum's Ultrasurf report

I ran into Jacob at 28c3, and as he described the holes it terrified me to know that people in Syria(the country I am focused on at the moment) were using this software. I am just starting to read the actual papers, but as I understand it the holes were/are pretty serious, and that the monitoring software in Syria(Bluecoat) was picking up one of the major holes as part of it's routine logging of all internet traffic, with no special changes required.
