    I'd just be curious what commercial product they went with.

    I wonder whether Spybot S&D protects us from it?

    Nope. :) Stuff like Spybot protects you from stuff on your local PC. What Carnivore did was to intercept stuff as it passed through your ISP; sort of like a phone tap but for digital data instead.

    That's mind boggling!
    With HS connections and automated programs and bots running its amazing there is any way to track one IP address. Computers are just flat-out amazing!
