More Proxy Fun
This morning I met a friend of mine for coffee. He is a bright guy and also a talented cyber security analyst. We had a good discussion on a number of different topics. At one point, we got into a discussion of blind proxying of DNS requests with no logging (an earlier topic I had blogged on). He decided to check his proxy, which was a different one than the one I had blogged about earlier (I am keeping both anonymous here). Same issue. Yup -- the proxy just blindly forwards DNS requests with no logging. I am beginning to think that this is a fairly common behavior with proxies. Have you checked yours lately?
