How to find the IP address of a hacker, according to CSI: Cyber

Raymond Chen

The episode of the television documentary CSI: Cyber which aired on CBS last Wednesday demonstrated an elite trick to obtaining a hacker’s IP address: Extract it from the email header.

Here’s a screen shot from time code 14:35 that demonstrates the technique.

<link href="y/mail.css?s=1382384360" type="text/cs
<hidden: ip: 951.27.9.840 > < echo;off;>

<!--if lte IE 7><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/

This technique is so awesome I had to share it.
