As you may have heard someone runs fake sites on a similar address to the
original ones and tries to fool people with that. Fake sites are transparent
proxies with MITM.
I added this detection to ahmia.fi's onion site:
using regexp and if it is not correct it will activate warning text.
/* Alternative CSS content rules for fake site. */
It's not perfect solution but again we can make the attacker's life hard.
