Submission + - Vigilante group tracks 250 million IP's per day (forbes.com)

FriendlyLurker writes: Project Vigilant claims to track over 250 million IP addresses per day, cross referencing them with social media profiles at Facebook, LinkedIn and others before handing the information off to federal agencies under the motto "Attributing Actions to Actors". Forbes' technology writer Andy Greenberg recently revealed that Adrian Lamo was working as a volunteer analyst for Project Vigilante at the time he turned over the chat logs for military whistleblower Bradley Manning — raising doubts over how Lamo came in possession of the logs in the first place.
