LAST UPDATED: 2023-03-31
This report identifies accessible HTTP proxy servers on multiple ports. While HTTP proxies have legitimate uses, they are also used for attacks or other forms of abuse.
If you want to obtain a list of only open proxies (ones not requiring authentication), use the Open HTTP Proxy Report.
How we scan
We search for both open HTTP proxies (ones not requiring authentication) and closed proxies (requiring some form of authentication).
Target URL we are trying to proxy to is api64.ipify.org.
We search for services that proxy HTTP CONNECT or HTTP GET requests.
We do not perform any intrusive checks on a discovered service.
As of 2023-03-30, we identify 1.35M accessible HTTP proxies.
You can track accessible HTTP proxies on our Dashboard here.
You can also track for specific proxy types using `http_proxy` and `http_proxy6` as a source. For example, this query lists all closed proxies we find with HTTP CONNECT.
If your HTTP proxy service is accessible publicly unintentionally and you receive this report from us for your network or constituency make sure to firewall traffic to this service.

This report has an IPv4 and IPv6 version.
