Usually the last part of the IP address (octet) will not change, since all mail is routed through a mail server at your company or service. This
server (SMTP) would then relay the message to the appropriate end party with its IP address.
Now, if we had the IP address of the server that the mail was sent from, we could identify what company or organization the e-mail was sent from. Not
necessarily what location. Since IP addresses are allocated by country, and not state or city for the most part (some of us that know the Internet
well enough can see what route things take and can do some extrapolations, but still not very accurate).
This is of course assuming ANONYMOUS is not smarter than your average bear and trying to hide his tracks.
Here is my take on what I think would happen if this were real.
ANON and his friends have been approved to release information to the public. Remember that even though this is sanctioned disclosure, there may be
some people who may not want this information out in the public for fear that they will lose power. So in advance I setup several ‘fictitious’
e-mail accounts where I can bounce my e-mail messages to Victor (someone earlier mentioned moving from hotel to hotel). I would not send these
messages via my work computer, since many organizations have the capability to scan all outbound e-mails for codes such as ‘SERPO’ or ‘EBEN’
or anything else they choose.
Now, as I start disclosure, I have access to the ‘room’ where the 3000 page book exists. I can come and go as I please, and no one really pays
attention to me, or what I am doing. I can transcribe material onto a laptop, etc. without problem.
However, ANON might not have counted on how quick this story would catch on. As it started to get more and more popular some of the PTB that wanted
this kept secret started watching whomever went into the ‘room’ a little bit more closely. So now, I am challenged as to how to get things out.
Possibly a voice recorder would be inconspicuous enough to record the information to be transcribed later (plays to the comment someone said earlier
about ANON getting a tape…)
A few more weeks go by and the PTB still are concerned about how information is being leaked, so now they watch even closer. Maybe ANON cannot get
into the ‘room’ with even a voice recorder, so now he (or she) has to memorize things for transcription at home.
But hey, that's just my fertile imagination at work :-)
