    Hey guys,

    I was just reading a random post and someone was giving suggestions for proxies. One of the services he listed was TOR. I dont know if people know this or not, but the TOR network isnt safe. Dont use it as a proxy for doing your surfing or blackhatting.

    Here is a link to the warning on DCS Proxy Forum.

    I dont think forum members that are new to proxies are aware of all the issues surrounding proxies and finding legitimate ones. This post points to just one of many.

    Be careful!

    I guess it depends what you want to use TOR/proxies for then?

    a) any proxy has the same issue, the server and sometimes the whole LAN at the server can sniff the data. Use SSL and you are safe from that, MIM attacks can be detected as the certificate is not valid.

    b) it is true, everyone can run a tor exit node but not all nodes are part of the exit node directory. it has quality rules and can kick out bad ones.
