One of my prior ISPs silently routed all traffic on port 80 through
their proxies. I had my computer set to no proxy, but my http traffic
was still proxied.
It is likely possible to detect this by comparing
http://www.whatismyip.com/ to https://www.whatismyip.com/ (http versus
https), or by comparing the insecure version to your DHCP lease. In
either case, however, the insecure version is vulnerable to
modification by the proxy.
