Its a fact. When you are online and post to a newsgroup, surf to a website, get
on IRC or send an e-mail, your IP address is provided to those who want it and
that is a direct connection (doorway) to your computer.
With the proper methods and tools you can easily produce a bogus IP address
web travel much safer and thwarting any chance of intruders accessing your
without you ever knowing it. The best source on this subject I have found is
