How to get someone's IP address?

An IP address is a unique address assigned to each machine connected to the Internet. This signifies the that if you have the address of any machine, you are in a better position to commence the use of any feasible exploit, gain control over the machine and then use it to your advantage.

First of all, you have to identify a particular target. It should be a person you happen to know personally. If the person is not in your close social circle, you will have to impersonate as one of the victim's friend.

Now here is how the simple way stands:

1>>Add the victim on an Instant Messenger such as MSN or Yahoo messenger.

2>>Tell them that you have this very important file eg. a picture of their's which you want to send using IM. If you say it the right way, there's no reason why the person would turn this down.

3>>Now before sending the file, open the command prompt in the background and type "netstat". It shows you all the open connections on your PC.

4>>Send the file and wait for the victim to accept it.

5>>As soon as the person accepts it and the file transfer begins, go to the command prompt and type "netstat" again without quotes. You will again see something like this:

Active Connections

TCP digital-venom:4046 SYN_SENT

TCP digital-venom:4047 SYN_SENT
TCP digital-venom:4048 SYN_SENT
TCP digital-venom:4049 SYN_SENT
TCP digital-venom:4050 SYN_SENT

Now compare this reading with the one you got before. The IP address newly added to the list is the IP address of your victim.

Note: Some third party software eg. Limewire is known to interfere with the connections established through an IM, specially MSN Messenger. Keep this in mind. :):)
