    I was reading on Tech news that some hacker "spoofed" their IP address. I am new in the computer world and was wondering what that meant?

    yes, yours was much more informative -

    as keikan posted, spoofing makes the hacked computer think that the hackers computer has a trusted ip address, allowing access.

    your half way there but the access to the target would have been blind with a spoofed adress.

    spoofing means that you fake an adress. it is impossible to start any kinda connection with a remote machine with a spoofed adress as the three way handshake is impossible.

    the original dos attack was to use a unreal spoofed adress to send syn packets to a machine untill you used up all the possible connections on the machine.

    Is that the same as using IP adresses to gain access to sites with passwotd protection - making the site think you are allready logged on ?? Excuse my ignorance on this, but i seem to have read that somewhere and i believe there is software to accomplish this.

    ip spoofing is a form of hacking. if you wanna discuss it further, do it outside this forum. However i will anwer ur question reguarding surfing the web anonymously. Proxy servers are used to maintain ur privacy on the internet, it acts as a middleman between you and the server that you are requesting information from. From the server side, it looks like only the middle man (proxy server) is requesting info not you.
