More on the McAfee patent.

Yesterday we brought you news about the devilish new McAfee patent. PantentNews has pointed out that the patent also claims to trace IP and then "displaying a world map with an illustration of the trace thereon utilizing the firewall."

Wait a second, that is just a graphical traceroute, is it not? Well, yes it is! And guess what? It predates 2002 as well. I even have a Linux application that does the same thing!
