This is long, but very well worth it.......
NEVER EVER USE PUBLIC PROXIES ON YOUR OWN MACHINE!
WOW thanks for the share, never knew it was so easy to make something like this.
I've already used squid proxy but never used it to harm people this way...
Yeah I was amazed to learn this. It is crazy how fast this spreads. As an IM using proxies for scraping, I thought it would be good to share this so people are careful.
Nothing new here..Man in the middle has been around forever.
You can have a lot of fun pretending to be a free wifi provider with a laptop and a copy of backtrack linux running
You are right, infact this video has been around a few years. But I think it is worth sharing this because us, Internet Marketers, so easily go grab proxies for different uses, not even thinking about the huge issues thiss can cause them.
You saw how fast this 1 proxy in the video spread......
My point of posting this is to make sure that we are doing our best to protect ourselves, so our own accounts and personal information are not stolen, by using a proxy.
How many people think twice about this at all when they grab proxies? I would lay odds not very many at all. Yet this is a huge issue that still exists.
There are simple things we can certainly do to protect ourselves while using proxies, and the first is to understand what the real threat is, how it works and protecting ourselves from this.
Hi, can't keep up with him could someone explain?
Can open source VPN could lead the same result.
this really only affects you if you use the proxy in a webbrowser. Using it for http requests is harmless -- no js execution.
I might will like to visit espain for sure someday. My ancestors is from der.
I don't have time to watch 40 minutes of this can you summarise it for me?
How many people use bots or other web applications that use webrowser?
Someone already did
I'm about 16 minutes through it so far, but this guy was actually pretty funny.
fuckin hades man. This whole time.. I'm never using proxies on my machine again. Bastards.
Yeah he is. I was laughing pretty hard through his demo.
Then he threw the proxy he created into 1 proxy list and within 24 hours that malicious proxy was in more than 1k + proxy lists and essentially anyone that used that proxy was hacked.
Crazy stuff never knew this! Great Share!
Yep, thought this would benefit everyone here.
Thanks for the heads up!
