There is a comment in the
torrc man page that exit policies can target the local machine or private networks, like say :
ExitPolicy accept 127.0.0.1:80 ExitPolicy reject private:*
Does anyone actually do this? How would one actually exploit it?
There are no
ip address limits specified in the consensus according to :
egrep "^p6? " /var/lib/tor/cached-microdescs | grep ':'

Nickname foobar or whatever. And the client need to set
AllowDotExit 1 and then access
localhost.foobar.exit:80? Is there an easier way?
