Meebo Repeater

I guess the blocking of Meebo’s site is a big enough problem for them that they created a repeater server to work around it. Too bad it’s Windows only. (Thanks Luis).

For various reasons, there are cases where access to meebo is restricted. We’ve found out that this leads some people to look for alternative, more creative solutions to gain access. A number of meebo users have started using third-party proxies and this caused us to worry a bit. Proxies are ripe for phishing attacks and the chances of an unknown agent sniffing your conversations or stealing your passwords are significantly increased. Reliability is questionable and privacy becomes a major concern. The technology can be abused in ways that compromise the security of your session.
