Re: [tor-talk] Tor exit+proxy
> Those open proxy lists... Well, my guess how they are created... Some people are scanning the internet and if they find an open proxy they'll add it to the list. But it does not mean the admin of the open proxy is aware that he is hosting an open proxy. In many cases open proxy's are just misconfigured home or enterprise networks. Few are probable hosting them for evil reasons and a minority for good reasons (want to give anonymity to people out of the goodness of their heart like some tor node admins).
Not all proxies are malwared or broken servers. You can buy some totally
legal or you can set up your own.
