Additional evidence of “zoned” data collection was discovered by finding out what registry manages the IP Addresses. Using the whois command, we can see what regions the IP Addresses are assigned to, and glean an indication of their location. I expanded on my previous command, and added a whois lookup request:

for i in `cat dns_lookup_results.txt | awk '{print $5}' | sort | uniq` ; do whois ${i} > ${i}.txt; done

This command uses the same steps as the sorting command posted earlier, but adds the whois request, and stores the results into a file, separated by IP address. I've attached the three result files at the end of the article for review, but a sample of the whois details for the 63.123.46.71 IP is as follows:

LG CNS UU-63-123-46-D2 (NET-63-123-46-0-1) 63.123.46.0 - 63.123.47.255

MCI Communications Services, Inc. d/b/a Verizon Business UUNET63 (NET-63-64-0-0-1) 63.64.0.0 – 63.127.255.255

The 165.244.150.126 IP Address is registered under APNIC, which manages IP Addresses for the Asia Pacific region, confirming the location is near Korea. In fact, it appears that LG has registered the location as being in Seoul, Korea.

The 193.67.216.128 IP Address is registered under the RIPE registry, which manages European IP Addresses confirming it is located within Europe. Specifically, the IP itself appears to be located in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Sadly, the 63.123.46.71 IP Address contains the least information via the simple whois request. According to the file, it is registered by MCI Communications/Verizon Business and resides on their network. Additional searches using the myip.ms website, has revealed it may be located in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, USA. However, any trace route requests are being blocked by MCI in Virginia, so I cannot confirm that.
