I refer folks to the following page on TOR:
"Using privoxy is necessary because browsers leak your DNS requests when
they use a SOCKS proxy directly, which is bad for your anonymity."
That means, your DNS server becomes the DNS server used by the TOR exit
node. I have no idea how many DNS servers operate with poisoned caches,
and the like. If I wanted to do some financial transaction, I think
Cardoso is suggesting a direct connection, instead. In earlier
discussions, people argued that an SSL connection offered some
protection, or warning about pharming attacks.
