    I think if he had really found anything of importance he would have acted much differently about it in the Project Camelot interview.

    To Hidflect:It may be possible, figuring they're using DHCP which gives all PC's on the network their own random ip every time a user logs on. The hosts' NIC still has its mac address (physical address) & the DHCP server uses that as authentication before it releases an ip address.Another way, which is more risky, is to scan for ip's while the users are logged on. Every issue ip address has a "time to live". Which is usually set to keep the same ip until the user logs off. One thing I've learned taking networking is all you have to do is make the server think its talking to that particular host.If this IS true its not easy by no stretch of the imagination.

    I saw his interview on the Beeb. And sorry, anyone with IT knowledge (15 years network engineer myself) can see that Gary McKinnon is lying in his BBC "Click" interview about how he "hacked" into military and government installations. He says he scanned for the IP's of PC's that had no password. This is impossible. PC's in a network such as exists in every organisation I have ever seen have NO PUBLIC IP, only local addresses (like Only the server has access to a public IP. And that WILL NOT EVEN INSTALL without first inputting a password. It is written in the installation code. You also cannot remove the password afterwards. Brevity forbids me from writing pages on the details. Just ask any IT Engineer. It is not feasible that there is an office and every PC has its own IP address connecting to the outside. It's expensive, dangerous, slower and more work to set up than the classic standard of one IP to the router, server and then requests handled locally to office PC's.The conclusion is: he is obviously a patsy. An outer "wannabe" member of a gang taking the rap for others and unwilling to give them up out of a misplaced sense of loyalty, a feeling of grandiosity and a Joan of Arc complex. This is obvious from the fact he was not even clued in enough to use a simple anonymous proxy and avoid detection.

    why is nobody demanding more information from the US government about what Gary found??? Secret space program? I mean, why isn't anyone bringing a case against the US government for lying about this stuff and covering it up in the first place, elitist fuckin pricks... free gary! Maybe the americans just want him extradited so they can use his expertise, like they do with all hackers that get caught, they hire them.
