If I were to use a random list of proxies to rotate through with a script I have written, what are the risks? I will only be scrapping off of one site and not submitting any secure data. I'm just not 100% sure what can happen to me besides the packets being sniffed and my IP being traced. Can someone elaborate on why my plan is a good or bad idea for security? Thanks Gurus

I think the worst what can happen is to be suspended by your hosting or domain provider. I don't know what and how much you should scrape to get legal issues.

If it's possible try to scrape it using tools with no domains and hosting servers. If not, you can try it, but I'd suggest to not do it on the same hosting where are your other projects hosted. And better try a cheap and an useless domain if you want to be 100% secure.

I'm a Web Developer. Contact me for bigger projects only.

Depending on what you're going to scrabe, you should be advised that some proxies does log your IP.
This is mainly US based companies because of their laws.
You could either get a VPN with no logs or find proxies with no logs.
