I don't know when this NSA snooping back room supposedly was invoked, but it might be of inerest that this IP in question, sffca.ip.att.net (12.123.13.186), shows in network logs (posted online) as far back as year 2000.

Was this surveilance happening then, or is this a bogus lead using an IP that has little use on the net?

1 Destination host unreachable.

That's what I get when I input a site that I've been using a proxy for, I would refer it, but it blocks ads as well, and I think the ATS staff would frown on that.

I haven't been using the proxy with ATS though

I did a trace route to uruklink.net where Saddam Hussein had his personal email address back then, because it's obvious the U.S. gov would want to monitor that. AT&T did not show up, but the NSA most likely tapped the Level3's switches as well.

Oh I'm sure if you try to link to any major Islamic Middle East URL's the chances of you being monitored increase dramatically.

If you e-mail the White House asking for Bush to step down for Treason and Corruption you'll probably also get a new found following even if your e-mail is completely within the law and does not promote the slightest act of violence.

Dear Mr. Bush,

I think you're doing a wonderful job of leading our country
into the ground.
I don't think most American's appreciate your effort
to undermine our U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights.
I don't see why everyone is so upset with your handling of the national debt.
You won't have to pay back any of it yourself, so what' the big deal?

I would bet that BT (British Telecom) is definatly watching my data. I have a friend of a friend who works for them, he recons they can piggyback onto an IP address and copy all the data to observe which sites customers are viewing, without actually going there themselves. Which I would think, means they can 'see' data such as passwords, intenet banking details and the like. This scares the bejesus out of me!!!

Yes, it means you are not on the real Internet ........ lmdao.

Seriously tho, I just don't put too much stock into this supposed check. Like someone stated already - it's too easy. Not too mention what I brought forward, that this IP has been in use for at least 6 years.

Imo, I tag this as a rumor.

running every one of those ip's through dnsstuff.com shows up something odd (use the 'new! ip information' search). every single ip states 'Reverse DNS authenticity: [Could be forged: hostname ar2-a3120s6.wswdc.ip.att.net. does not exist]'

it would be interesting if some customer were to email the isp and ask them for an explanation of what this means

Want to point out something I believe most are missing. You are tracing an ATT IP, so naturally, several ATT hops are going to be in that trace.

Pinging an ATT address to see if a certain ATT address is in the results to be the deciding factor of weather or not the governmenet is watching you, is kinda like backhanding a dog on the face to see if it will bite.

Even if it is not an ATT address you ping, being many of the nations routers for the net run via ATT, they most likely WILL be in many trace results.

Don't read into what is only taken from a blog, and no substantial referrences can be found (meaning, mainstream or mainstream tech news; put that IP in Google, not much comes back, and then only from smaller sites, and most of those sites simply referrencing the original blog post).

1,2, 15-30 timed out

7&8 were level 3

10&11 went to ip.att.net

This is when I did tracert nsa.gov...


Now what the hell does the NSA want to do with my internet records? What can they do with them? Nothing. So what is the deal with them spying on us...

Oh yeah, oh yeah, I'm safe, I'm safe.





Now I'll just slink away and re-commence my highly illegal internet activities knowing that the NSA doesn't have a clue what I'm doing.


Why get so worried if AT&T is funneling your data to the NSA? I don't really care what they think of me. It's not like I'm downloading weapons schematics and the White Houses's blueprint.
