First of all what Proxy tool are you using? Some just completely suck but others are quite good. Anyways they are most likely utilizing a JavaScript or maybe even a flash web applet on the website you visited that would go through the proxy(s) directly to the source IP (You can easily disable flash, JavaScript, activeX or whatever). That is probably the most common way to find someones IP hiding behind a proxy.

Remember proxies are some end all tool that will keep you masked from everyone else and not every proxy service is a good one.

Also I wouldn't worry to much about your IP address being public there isn't really that much a person can do with just your IP address unless they are very dedicated to getting into your computer.

They don't really know who you are... if you have DSL, your IP address is dynamic and changes anyways. At best, they can get your name (unless you plaster your information on Facebook... which apparently everyone and their mother does now adays...).

Thanks,..I was wondering what is the best proxy tool for ubuntu and windows
@ CaptainBlastXD: have you tried Tor?

You get into the Tor network and your data passes (encrypted) through three other users. The site you're visiting gets the IP of the final user. You can choose to be a relay yourself if you want, not just client.


Also, as was already said, disable JavaScript and Flash.
