Beat the FBI: How to Send Anonymous Email Without Getting Caught

•, by Ben Weitzenkorn
  From where you sit, I’m little more than a byline and a couple of hundred black words on a white field. It's a fact, or fiction, that gives many Internetusers solace.

But as some people have recently learned in very real and damaging ways, online anonymity is not a guarantee.

Just ask Violentacrez, the Reddit moderator who posted and hosted risqué pictures of women taken without their consent, and whose name was exposed as Michael Brutsch.

Ask CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus and his biographer Paula Broadwell, who used the tried-and-failed technique of leaving communiqués in the draft folders of email accounts.
Ask the members of the hacktivist movement Anonymous, whose leaders have been outed, arrested and convicted due to their supposedly untraceable online activities.

If anything, the Internet has made the world a less anonymous place. There are more details about more people available from more places than there have ever been. And we all throw it up there willingly.
