    Proxies Hosted on Google AppEngine

    It looks like some folks are hosting proxies on Google's AppEngine.

    I noticed http://proxysun5.appspot.com/ when I caught it doing naughty things to one of my web sites. Unfortunately, I cannot easily IP block it because it's IP is within Google's IP address space. It attacked from 72.14.194.17, which is part of Google's 72.14.192.0/18 range.

    I found a good writeup on Labnol about how to do this, Setup your own Proxy Server in 5 Minutes for Free.

    I am not sure how to say this ,i don't want to sound to pessimist but prepare yourselves for a new spam wave if that's going to take the same "form" as the .co.cc wave that we had before summer

    It sounds good, but it seems that you are limited in many ways and you have to mess around a little to get things working, appengine only supports things like python / java. There is no support for PHP at Google appengine yet, - Issues - googleappengine - but there are workarounds such as this - Run PHP on the Google App Engine - which still requires more time / messing around to get things working.

    What do you think?
    Could be it's too technical for people to bother setting up compared to setting up a php proxy. Especially when anyone can just drop a php proxy script on a server and have a proxy running without any real knowledge of what they're doing.
