Getting an IP address using an Instant Messenger
Hey! I need some help...Someone asked me if there are other ways to get an IP address from someone using MSN Instant Messenger other than sending a file and using netstat. I said not yet. My understanding is that the computers are directly linked together when they send files, like P2P. Am I wrong?
Also, which Instant Messengers are vulnerable to this way of getting an IP address?
Thanks for any help...
