    To Much Information

    I was pondering to myself last night, do the security measures we take, mean that we are recieving more information than we should be?

    Take NeoTrace for example, if a hacker tries to remotely access my computer isn't it strange how I can trace to his exact location just from a set of numbers and .'s
    For those of you who dont use NeoTrace it will basically tel you everything about the user, from the name of the ISP, thier name, even the number of the ISP
    Personally I believe that in this day and age, we are revealing too much information without even realising it.
    The worst is that Net Detective which we will give you EVERYTHING about someone!!
    Where do we draw the line? Does anyone feel the same or do you think I'm a paranoid idiot

    How could you respond to him if you couldn't trace the information back to it's origin? If the IP address didn't trace back to an ISP then how would a router know where to send the response?
    As far as the name and number (I'm assuming you mean a phone number), it's just a matter of having a big database with all the info to cross-reference.
