hacking through proxies but how???
I read alot that hackers attack a server by using proxies but how proxies allow them to do this.I also use proxies but all I do with these proxies is hiding my IP.is there any way to use hacking tools through proxies.I don't think so then how hackers use proxies for implementing an attack?

Proxies arn't the only thing 'they' use. There are lots of other 'toolz' and 'needz' a hacker needs. For instance, there is such a thing called a "bouncer" which is mainly for UNIX comps. This is sort of like a proxy (I won't go into detail about this for it looks like you know your stuff a bit), but for IRC. So, you see, there are many things.
And also, what attacks are you talking about? DoS? Defacement? Hacking from one box to another [perosonall] box? Be specific.

Most hackers don't use "tools". You see alot of these so called "tools" that are supposted to hack for you. Unfortunately most of these don't work. If you are concerned about remaining anonymous then go down to ur cyber cafe or library and do your "work" from there.
is there any way to use hacking tools through proxies
Just my two cents,

Proxies are used so that the "hacker" can remain anonymous. Once a user connects to a proxy, the source traffic all appears to be coming from the proxy servers IP address, therefor it becomes more difficult to trace back the originating IP.
The one thing that many people forget about proxies is that you are not completely anonymous because you are still making a connection from your box to the proxy server, therefore all someone would need to track you down is the proxy log files.

Right, so the only way to be anonymous is to use the proxy, and then delete the log file somehow.
