I am a real newbie with all things computers. I was wondering if someone could tell me if
A. It is possible to get people addresses from their IP using software
B. Is it legal?
For more background here is a part of a paste bin report on some people that a "hacker" says he got legally.
A group of us would like to know if it is possible or legal to do what he has done?
Any help would really be appreciated
and same person said they did this"I find the IP address by emailing the person, and upon the opening of the email the IP address is then revealed back on a server under my control. All perfectly legal.
All info obtained from IP address is publicly available once you have the IP
Longitude and Latitude determined from routers are relative locations unlike cell phones which transmit precise GPS like a GPS unit.
