I was looking at this question: How can you be caught using Private VPN when there's no logs about who you are? and everyone who read it and responded seemed to be taking for granted that every single proxy mentioned was a website. It seems to me that even programs that connect you to proxy servers don't route all of your traffic, just the traffic that runs through your browser. I have never seen an attack executed using the browser, but of the 8,000 people who looked at this I am the only one who commented on this, so I would assume I am missing something. What is it?
Aka, why would these proxies help obscure your identity while you hack when they only work in conjunction with a browser, not whatever tool you are using to attack the website?
