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!
