Do they log what you download?

And I was just using that site as an example.

What you view is NEVER logged by your ISP without a warrant. The only thing's ISP's are allowed to log is the IP address you used, the time you used it and who you are.

Logging said things in Canada would be in violation of Section 184 of the Criminal code of Canada.

Hm. I was just curious. As most of you know I got busted for Copyright infringement. I really do not want to push my luck.

But a lot of tools that are used for hacking are also used by network admins to monitor, harden, and audit their networks.

For example the book Hacking Exposed puts out a bunch of links to apps that can be used and are used to hack.

Another company that is very reputable that distributes tools

I'd lay low for a while considering you just got busted for something else. Pushing your luck is not a sound course of action at the moment.

I wasn't planning on hacking anyone. But, I don't want to get in trouble for looking at hacking websites. According to everyone here, i will be fine, unless i get flagged for soemthing, then they might go back through and see what ive been doing. As Long as i am not doing anything illegal, (ex. downloading illegal stuff) i will be fine.

But I do agree. I should probably lay low. I have thought about switching ISP's. But decided that would be stupid.

The best part is that I am trying to get a job at the ISP that caught me downloading illegally

ok you clearly don't get it. this was mentioned already in this thread

the ISP cant go back and look through what you went to because they DONT LOG IT unless they get a warrant served to them by the police. UNDERSTAND?

The US laws are very similar, and in effect are the same way about wiretapping and information logging.

I was just giving an example of what I know from Canadian law, go look up the US laws while your at it.
