    I want to ask more experienced members that have some knowledge about proxy scanning. What interests me are so called "dangerous IPs". So for those who don't know they're IPs belonging to governments/military etc. I'd like to know if you can get in trouble if you accidentally scanned such an IP address? I know that there's a list published online with such IPs to avoid but firstly it only contains IPs of USA organizations but there's still the world outside the USA (yes, that's true :) ). And secondly, no one can guarantee that such list is up to date and contains all troublesome IPs. So this is quite probable that if you mass scan for proxies you may accidentally scan an IP belonging to a government of any country or sth like that. The question is what may happen if you do so? Is IT staff of such organizations used to suspicious behaviors and know that it's not usually intentional or are there seriously concerned about such an activity and go after you because they think you are a bad guy or a hacker?
