Author Topic: Proxy judges  (Read 13117 times)

Hello,

On the weekly report for the URLs people request on my Web site, there are two URLs that are not for my Web site:

   http://cship.info/cgi-bin/prxjdg.cgi
   http://scifi.pages.at/myproxies/azenv.php

I did a quick search on the Web, and these are both proxy judges, which are programs that are used to test exactly what a proxy sends.

About a year ago, I got some malware on my computer that was apparently using it as an open relay, presumably for relaying spam. I have never managed to find the malware (it's a Windows service), but thought I had shut it down by blocking it through ZoneAlarm (a firewall).

Any idea what's going on with the proxy judges? Why are these showing up on my Web logs, especially when the URL isn't on my site?

Thanks,

A Proxy Judge is a Proxy server tester. It shows up in the logs when someone probes a website looking for an open Proxy on the server.

You can find some more detailed info on it at these sites:

Thanks. I was guessing that was what was going on, but wasn't sure.
