[R4.2 on System 76 Intel]
First of all, a very advanced spectrum attack was demonstrated where the clock can be made to skip sequence when there is no user initiated network connection to wifi or otherwise.
But more tenably, Whonix Gateway can be attacked via updates. All of a sudden after updating to the latest, no tor connections are successful even with bridges. But TAILS can connect successfully on the same access point. This is exactly why secure updating mechanisms need to be strenghtened and why stateless, immutable, and live modes limiting hostile writing should be developed further.
If clock is attacked, then probably updates over tor can be subverted and the Whonix Gateway was damaged this way.
Is there a way to fix this besides deleting the Gateway and seeing if it can be retrieved from Dom0 templates?
[This is an actual empirical phenomenon. No one educates the Responders, for instanance, that VPNs are not criminal activity and what stream isolation is all about and tells them that they are just responders. They think the same idiocy for years. Nothing artificial about empirical intelligence. Post should not be censored. Free software is not expert-only use. Prove that my opponents are really “dominant.” They just say people are stupid for inquiring which means the forum itself is stupidity.]
