HOW DID YOU GET MY IP ADDRESS

[–] Gingercuntfirecrotch 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

I have more than that. I have your routers address too. 192.168.1.1

Saw the title and came to rant...now I'm not even mad.

Thank you, humorous Internet stranger!

This is obvious to anyone with any technical skill. There are many open or guest WiFi’s available almost anywhere. Old WiFi security can easily be cracked and used.

Glad the judge at least got this one right.

Also, use a VPN people!

[–] Skins 0 points 15 points (+15|-0) ago  (edited ago)

I'm not convinced VPNs are the security wonder they're cracked up to be. Instead of the ISP seeing your traffic, you just give that ability to the owner of the VPN when your traffic exits through their network instead.

All it does is transfer the trust relationship from the ISP to the VPN provider.

Correct, which is why you get a VPN in a country that doesn't honor US subpoenas. Even better if the VPN is in a country that doesn't participate in the 5, 9, or 14 eyes bullshit.

Agreed. But I’ve had my ISP send me copyright notices. I’ve never had a VPN do that.

The main reason I have one is I connect to a lot of public wifi

Someone tell this to online businesses. I am really tired of websites being broken because they think they know where I am based on my IP.

[–] TheTrigger 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

So much this. Stop assuming where I live: you're wrong and now you're just adding extra steps for me to get the information I want.

[–] Ghetto_Shitlord 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Probably never happening, at least they didn't block the VPN endpoint, yet. For anyone we've setup we do block them, too many attacks coming from these ip's.

What exactly is the problem with letting me go to the .us domain from a Canada IP?

“There is nothing that links the IP address location to the identity of the person actually downloading and viewing Plaintiff’s videos, and establishing whether that person lives in this district,” Judge Ungaro writes.

This is basically the reason why I do not have any password on my wifi ....

[–] Astroqualia 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago  (edited ago)

...but then, you dont have that excuse to use.

[–] thelma 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Its even broader really. Anyone can access my ISP.

[–] totes_magotes 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

FFS, how many times do we need to have a judge say this before these idiots get it?

[–] QPredictedThis 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

This isn't even new, I believe this was ruled to be the case elsewhere years ago. I mean wardriving is a thing.

[–] Astroqualia 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Ahhh, good times

Jeremy Hammond?

Dread pirate roberts?

Maybe they should be revisited?

[–] HorseIsDead 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

This has been ruled over and over again. This isn't news.
