Skype 2 ip resolver online dating
The path should reflect the current location on your machine.
We are now setup to start resolving IP addresses to geographic locations.
But I believe most Skype users still have no clue about this basic privacy weakness.This involves using a database of some kind that has various IP subnets mapped to geographic locations.One of the tried and true databases is the Maxmind Geolite Database (download it here).In the above screen shot, we can see one such service being used to display the IP address most recently used by the Skype account “mailen_support” (this particular account belongs to the tech support contact for Mailien, a Russian pharmacy spam affiliate program by the same name).Typically, these Skype resolvers are offered in tandem with “booter” or “stresser” services, online attack tools-for-hire than can be rented to launch denial-of-service attacks (one of these services was used in an attack on this Web site, and on that of Ars Technica last week).
This process writes the IP address of the requested username to the debug log, in plain sight.” Beyond exposing one’s Internet connection to annoying and disruptive attacks, this vulnerability could allow stalkers or corporate rivals to track the movement of individuals and executives as they travel between cities and states.
