So it seems my ISP is running squid version 184.108.40.206-20110203 in transparent mode , just like you said.
Interestingly when connecting to random ip addresses on port 80, the error page returned is quite different from normal ones.
Does this transparent proxy pose any threat and what can I do to stop that ?
The threat here is that your ISP will log every page visit you do and also has the ability to block certain websites.
The only thing you can do is setting up a tunnel or using a different proxyserver that you trust.
