    Hey guys I know some folks port scan for datacenter proxies.

    My question is, I thought all data center proxies were authenticated.
    So , what's the deal with scraping them, are some of them open, are you cracking the authentication or what?

    OK, you don't, but many do, I am wondering why since they are all authenticated as you confirmed...

    Are they hoping to find some open, or do they crack them?

    Just something I have been wondering do you happen to know?

    Thanks for the reply.
