Someone in management has suggested that our proxy has been hacked by someone on the inside.
Our proxy is set up to log each user as they access the Internet, but someone has reason to believe that at least one person has found a way around it.
My manager has approached me, and asked if that were possible. So, I'm here to find out.
I looked in our proxy logs, and there is one entry entitled "anonymous" - but I do not know how if someone is using that or how they would even get the password for it.
I located the article Is it ethical to hack real systems? on here. First, I do not have anything written from him saying I can do this, but I want to come back to him letting him know if it were possible and how someone might be going about it.
Does anyone know if it is possible?
If someone did find a way around our proxy (so that they would not be logged or so they could access blocked websites), would they most likely be doing it through the anonymous account or by getting around the proxy another way?
