I was trying to look up information from an scam spam-email header. I used McAfee Security Center Visual Tracer to trace the IP address and also samspade.org to lookup the same information on the same IP address. What I found was a drastic difference in the information I found.
The McAfee Visual Tracer, Showed the IP address coming from a computer in PA. It listed the Company's Physical Address in VA. Where as Samspade.org showed the Company's Physical Address in TX and showed the customer as a private residence in IN.
Why is there such the drastic diffenece, when they are getting the information from essentially the same place?
