Ok, I'm going to have to come clean on this one. I'm paranoid. :thumbsup:

I've been pretty much securing my PC and network this week, encrypting my drive, salting passwords, etc etc etc blah blah blah. I just need one more thing. I need a good, secure, and free proxy server. (Not like the ones you use to get around filtering, but ones that shoot data off to some server, get stuff off the web, and shoot it back to you). I Googled for some, and there's a lot out there, but I'm not sure which ones are actually good/still work/don't sell your crap to hackers. Anyone got any suggestions?

Would something like Tor help http://www.torproject.org/ The problem with free ones is there is no real gaurantee that they will protect you. but paid versions will.

I know theres a program or OS called Squid.

Squid is a caching proxy for the Web supporting HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and more. It reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages. Squid has extensive access controls and makes a great server accelerator. It runs on Unix and Windows and is licensed under the GNU GPL.

I havn't used it, the school that I recently left does and it does quite a good job. Well... good on their side but not good on ours :flowers: because we want to go on site but they block them :thumbsup:

Hope this helps.
