Hi there, this is my first time actually using this site, but I have been on here before trying to help a friend that was infected by the locker cryptovirus program.  Today, however, I come for a much different reason: one of my friends was talking on an IRC and ended up clicking on a link that revealed her IPv6 address (amongst other things possibly) and although that is not a lot of sensitive data in it of itself, I did not want to click the link and do some snooping of myself because I do not want risk being infected with anything malicious. 


This is the link given to my friend:   


I really appreciate the work the staff does on this site, and I really appreciate any input that can be made here :D.
