    TV Show and Proxies

    Hi,

    I have another dummy me question I was watching Criminal Minds TV show and the killer had a web feed that the FBI was trying to track the location on.

    In the tv show they said that he was being hard to track because he was bouncing off of 12 different Proxies all over the world.

    So is this for real

    What do you do? go to a proxy site and then in the proxy site go to another and then another.

    If this is real could it be hard to trace really?

    Hi Sami.. Naturally TV makes it look a lot easier than it really is, it would take good planning and timing to get away with something like that. A lot of things could go wrong.

    It's called proxy chaining when you link proxies together, they would be more likely to use HTTP proxies which use IP:PORT, and more secure method such as SOCKS Proxies instead of a web based (PHP / CGI) proxy.

    If this is real could it be hard to trace really?
    If you would chain through 12 proxies, the speed would be a lot slower.. But yeah that would make it a lot harder to trace back depending on which countries are used.

    Say you build a proxy chain through various countries like china -> russia -> ukraine -> africa -> korea -> etc etc , that could make it a lot more difficult for our law enforcement investigators to even get access to those server logs, which they will need to trace someone back to their original IP address.

    Then if you throw into the mix hacked servers being used as an open proxy, and the hacker delete's their logs afterwards to cover their tracks, an investigator would really have to get access to that server, recover the deleted information to retrieve the logs and this could slow things down a lot if you had to go through 12 unfriendly or un co-operative countries.

    I think it depends mostly on how much damage and money is involved to make it worth tracking someone down in the first place. People can and have been caught.

    TV shows also have pistols that shoot 100 bullets before reloading.

    Do you believe everything you see on tv?

    Hi

    No I do not believe everything I see on TV.

    I know that pistols don't shoot 100 bullets just 6. But in this case I did not know so I was wondering if it was true.

    Years ago things seemed to be almost all fantasy on Films, Movies, and Tv. Now days I think they are trying to put some realism into the script so I was just wondering if this was real.

    A lot of the techniques used on CSI are pure fantasy. They do a good job of making that look real.
