    Hi all!

    I have a question for all you coding geniuses (and there are quite a few on here judging from the number of posts that I have to go to the books to understand!)

    I was checking out this thread in Member Downloads:
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/member-downloads/37712-get-billions-grant-money.html
    To make it a little easier, here's the member area (use a proxy):

    Code:
    http://www.unclesamsmoney.com/access_new/member.html
    OK, here's the question: How can this membership site use a person's IP address as the member's sign-in/password?? Doesn't your IP change, except when you are on a static IP, like a cable internet connection?? Is this something new or just something that I haven't run across before??

    If this is the wrong forum to post this in, I apologize, but I thought the BH'ers in here would know, if anyone would.

    Thanks for any insight!

    (And, by the way, since I'm behind a proxy, there is nothing showing in the site's IP box, and I'm locked out of any of the site's links!)

    Again, thanks! :)

    By a short look: that site looks like a typical scam project.
    I have no idea what this IP crap should mean, it's simply stupid.

    And you are right, usually a IP changes all the time.
    But actually: if you just need an IP to access the links, well everyone got an IP.

    The whole page looks like a scam project by a young hobby web designer that will not lead to any money

    p.s. if you use a proxy then you still got an IP, that's why you use a proxy ^^
    You probably used a web proxy which fucked up the javascript on their site, that's why the box was empty.

    justone-

    Thanks for your reply!

    You are right about my using a web proxy. For the limited use that I need it for right now, it does what I need and best of all, its free!:D

    I don't think its a scam site, though. It has paid ads in Goog and if you go to the website (don't need a proxy for this)
    Code:
    http://www.unclesamsmoney.com/
    its a standard sales page for access (and of course the free bonuses:rolleyes:) for $40, so I don't think it just a hobby site.

    But I'd really like to know how they track your "membership" access with just an IP tracker.

    Any other thoughts??:)
