How-to hide qubes kernel name from browser ?


#1

Hello.

I can see my qubes kernel “pvops.qubes.x86_64” at the TorBrowser about:support page.

I don’t know does a websites can see my OS type, probably no. But the coincidence of the kernel types can be used against the user.

Will this be fixed in the new version of the OS? Or can this be solved now?

HI xuy

This was a defect that was brought to the attention of the Tor devs and was patched.

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/13047

0brand, the fixed #13047 bug is an another bug and it is not related to this case.

It looks like, but unfortunately another.

Hello.

Tor Browser makes that uniform.

Will this be fixed in the new version of the OS?

No, very much probably not.

Or can this be
solved now?

Not that I know. There are a lot off “less important identifiers”, that
would be cool to hide

but hypervisors / operating systems / isolation frameworks to do so are
unavailable.
