Privacy is a very important element in every one's everyday life. Most users would not like to have their data exposed to other people on the Internet. The initial approach used for attacking a user's privacy and security is done by scanning the nodes on a network. This gives an attacker the ability to obtain the IP addresses in use by this node so that this information can then be used to initiate further attacks against this node, such as tracking them via their IP address across the networks, and then, later correlating the user's activities with his IP address.
