Is it true that a javascript can dig out my real ip adress behind a secure anonymizing proxy, even if I don't have any plugins installed in my browser? I have manually deleted all the plugins in firefox and don't accept cookies or allow java, but I do allow javascript. I also use a firewall that let's me select which apps I give access to the internet and a good antivirus to protect from trojans.

Also, I have read that dns leaks is dangerous when it comes to anonymity. For all I know I am using my isp's dns (is there a way to test which dns server I am using?). Can sites I visit record which dns server I used to resolve their host? If so how do I change to use an "anonymous" dns or better options?

I'd be very greatful for any response to clear these questions. Have a good day all =)

Ps. I didn't quite know if I was supposed to post this under hardware/networking or here so I posted on both locations. Ds

Hello, prollster! Welcome to geekstogo!
If your computer is completely anonymous, you will not be able to use or view web sites. You can read more about dns here:
