I like to think of myself as fairly computer literate, but i am always suprised by how much i don't know about one subject; how much of my personal information is avaliable for people to spy. Having heard more and more about the RIAA "cracking down" on P2P filesharing, i've been very curious as to how they would ever be able to track individual people down and arrest them, or whatever. Exactly what information are you sending out when you're connected to a P2P network? How could a hacker/the government/whatever use this information? Is there anything i can do to increase my anonimity? I would be very interested in learning about how to protect myself on-line in general.
If someone has any information or links to a good website with information about internet privacy/protection i would love to learn more. Thanks in advance
