Q&A: Could i get a virus by connecting to a proxy?
Question by Elise: Could i get a virus by connecting to a proxy?
Alot of times i use sites where my ip is banned or i have to appear to be someone else. Usually i get a proxy address like this 126.96.36.199:80, and change my proxy settings in firefox. Most of the time im on it for less then 5 minutes. So far i haven’t gotten a virus or anything but is it possible for the host of the proxy to access my computer?

maybe, really depends on what type of proxy your using.
