Is it possible to detect the physical area where the http request was made? If the request was made from an ip address of xxx.yyy.z.ww, does x,y,z, or w associate with any particular geographical area?
I'm in Pennsylvania and I get targeted ads for Seattle all the time. Guess Comcast make it look like I'm there. So this whole thing ain't very reliable.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

Thanks for the info. JavaInetLocator could suggest from what country the IP address is. As Martin indicated the proxy provider could translate the original IP address to a different IP address. When a request arrived, it had different IP address. Worldwide,how could one detect where (physical address) the original virus was planned? Do they trace the traffic through the proxy provider or the IP address provider such as Yahoo, Verizon, etc...
