Is there a way to track down an IP address?
I have received notices from two unrelated forums this week telling me that my account has been locked out because someone tried to log in using my user name with the wrong password five times in a row. Each one of the forums gave me an IP number for the would-be intruder:

67.82.251.154 and 74.53.243.34

It was not I who was attempting to log in as I have not visited either of these forums in several months.

How far can one get in finding information on these numbers? And, how do I go about it if it's possible to get anything at all?

Tracert will bring you to the ISP. A court order will get you the ISP's logs so you can find out who was logged on with that IP at that particular time.

I'd be less concerned about tracking the person down (to what end?) than I would be about the quality and security of my passwords.

Less concerned, maybe, but not unconcerned.

"to what end?" Curiosity, if nothing else.

Hi,
I agree with Helix. I don't know how useful it would be. I checked out my own ip addr. & it came up close, but not even good enuf for horseshoes!

The little hacker's a busy bee
Curious. I was notified on 6 Aug 2007 that that same IP 67.82.251.154 had been used for multiple attempts to access my account on an unrelated message board, resulting in a temporary "lock out". No skin off my fingers since I haven't visited that site since registering on a whim.

I discovered this techguy topic while Googling for the IP. I've alerted the administrator of the forum that the little hacker is alive and well. Doubt they'll do anything. If there's such a thing as Karma, just living in New Jersey should kill him or at least give him a seriously painful rash.
