Hi, As some of you know, there are all kinds of proxies. Proxies you are allowed to use, proxies you're not allowed to use, and proxies you REALLY shouldn't use. Some IP-Ranges belong to governments and army all over the world. These ranges should probably be left alone. The proxy section on this forum is really useful. But I think, especially for newbies, it would be good to list the ranges, so they can be left alone. Nobody gets in trouble that way or breaks the law. I've heard about proxy scans gone wrong. Then your ISP gets notified. Some proxy-scanning software has build-in lists. But not everyone uses the same software. I've collected a few posts about this: post # 3 by prozium: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/proxies/82700-finding-socks-proxies-nmap.html#post778858 post # 1 by akacash: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...eads-up-port-scanners-do-not-scan-ranges.html post # 1 by ub3r (different forum) http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=144678 Half-way down the page in this wikipedia article there are some more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Blocking_IP_addresses LOTS more: http://sourceforge.net/p/iplist/iplist/ci/master/tree/ipblock.lists Maybe a moderator can make a thread, and post these in? It doesn't have to be this thread since it's also a question. Thanks!
