Very dangerous!

"The DNS leak provides your ISP name and location to the website that
you are visiting, thus undermining your ability to stay anonymous on the
internet. For example, if you visit a website using a proxy from Sweden,
it will first appear to the website that you are an internet user in
Sweden. However, due to a DNS Leak, the website may be able to determine
that your ISP is actually AOL, which would mean that you are located in
the United States."
