After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 050 IP Tracking

At 10:59 in the evening, in an unassuming small white building a hundred miles away from Yan City.

The four walls of the third underground floor were completely occupied by computer screens. A few people in green uniforms were standing in front of the screens, staring at the changing codes, or the map with alternating bright or faint lights. If one looked carefully, one would find that the two walls with the most light spots were Japan and South Korea.

Holding a thermos cup, the middle-aged man took a sip of wolfberry tea and said slowly: “I don’t think this matter will be over without at least two to three days.”

The long-haired woman raised her chin and glanced at him, then looked away and said, “The trade conference will start soon, and it must be over even if it doesn’t end.”

The young man sitting on the steps with his legs bent said carelessly: “Your words are somewhat ambiguous.”

The others couldn’t help laughing when they heard this. Suddenly, the intern who had been staring at the screen shouted loudly: “Another group of people have joined!”

The man took a few steps forward, leaning against the intern’s desk, holding his cup of tea and as calm as ever: “All showing up at the same point in time, at first glance, these are a group of people, but I wonder which group it is.”

The intern looked up while typing quickly and asked, “Can’t we track their IP?”

The young man jumped down the steps, sat next to him, rested an arm on his shoulder, and said in a tone of someone who had experience: “We are the National Cyber Security Agency, not the Justice League or the neighborhood committee aunt. They have their fun, and we just watch a good show, we can’t control each other.”

“But…..these people are very powerful hackers. If they want to attack our country’s security network, we will be at a loss if we don’t know anything about them. If we know their IP in advance, we can be prepared.”

The young man shook his index finger: “Then you underestimate our National Cyber Security Agency.”

The intern was stunned for a moment, and thinking of something, his eyes suddenly lit up: “I have always heard that there is a real master in our Security Agency, is it true? Who is it?”

“It’s true.” The young man pointed to his nose and smiled, “It’s me.”

The intern was silent for a few seconds, then turned to look at the middle-aged man: “Vice Chief Li, do we really not need to track their IP? I just caught a tail, it seems to be from our country.”

The middle-aged man shook his head and said with a smile: “The IPs of these hackers are like Russia’s nesting dolls which they use as magic trick props. You think it’s just a simple toy and that the one in the very inside is the last one, in fact, the nesting doll is just a cover-up to distract you. Besides, if they could be caught by you then they don’t have the ability to make trouble in other countries’ safety nets, so don’t waste your time and energy.”

“But what if their IP can be traced? Why not try it?”

Middle-aged man: “It’s pointless to try ineffectively, especially in the online world…’ll know when you are here for a longer time.”

The intern insisted on expressing his thoughts: “But these are top hackers. If there are people from our own country among them, we can recruit them. Isn’t this a good thing for the National Cyber Security Agency?”

“These people, if only they can be recruited so easily…..”

“Yes.” The woman who had her arms crossed said with no expression: “Achieving the ultimate in anything is the top part of the pyramid. This kind of people can live freely in any country and place. Why would they be willing to be suppressed by the government? There are also some very powerful hackers in our country, such as the famous hacker forum Wingnet, the twenty-six hackers on the Alphabet list are all elites, and anyone of them could at least get the position of a security consultant if they join the Security Agency.”

Someone continued where she left off: “Not only that, if they rank in the top ten, it is not impossible to give the position of Director, and the country will definitely focus on their care and training. But even so, there is only one who is willing to be used by us, and he also only accepts the usual national security maintenance tasks. Except for contacting us when we issue tasks, he will not contact us at ordinary times, and his work is not under our control. It is estimated that he has also joined in today’s melee.”

The intern excitedly said: “Really? Who is that great god! Have I seen them?”

The middle-aged man smiled: “When a certain time comes, you will see them.”

The dots on the central screen flashed faster and faster. When all the dots were dimmed, new dots were soon added, and the code on the left screen was also showing up at a dizzying pace. Apart from this, the screen on the right side which had been still the whole time suddenly lit up, and two Asian faces appeared, speaking Japanese and Korean respectively, reporting news.

The young man sneered: “Japan asked America for help, saying it is a political conspiracy, because certain countries tried to sabotage the many strategic cooperations that Japan and America are about to sign this time.”

The intern hurriedly said: “The government of South Korea also declares that they are an innocent victim, calling on hackers across the country to rise up and resist to protect national security.”

The middle-aged man took a sip of tea: “It seems that the International Trade Conference in three days will be quite lively.”

The woman nodded, and as if having suddenly thought of something, she turned her head and asked, “Who will attend this conference?”

Middle-aged man: “Shi Zeyang from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and He Yuanzheng from the Ministry of Commerce.”

The woman frowned and pondered. The young man sitting on the side suddenly laughed out loud: “There will be a good show.”

The intern was curious: “Why is Minister Shi and Minister He attending together going to be a good show?”

“Now that story can be traced back to more than ten years ago…..”

The young man stroked his chin, and the intern craned his neck curiously.

Suddenly, the middle-aged man slapped the intern on the back of the head and said, “Why are you so gossipy? Work.”

The young man shrugged at the intern, who had no choice but to let it go for now.

At exactly one o’clock in the morning, after finishing up sweeping his trail, Jiang Chen removed his fingers from the keyboard.

The dialog box of the hacker group popped up again. The group was extremely lively. Most of the people showed up. They were all discussing the network that was paralyzed in Japan and South Korea just now. After turning off the computer, a private chat box popped up:

[C: D God, your patch was really fast just now, it was like you could read the other party’s mind, they just made a single move and you had already patched it up.]

Jiang Chen thought for a while, and typed two words:

[D: Thank you.]

[C: Hahahaha. Actually, I haven’t talked to you before, so I want to chat with you. I have been waiting for you to challenge me before, but I didn’t expect you to stop when you reached D. Later, someone spread that you like the letter D. So you really don’t plan to battle anymore?]

[D: My name is Dylan.]

[C: Because of this? But isn’t Dylan a foreign name? Wingnet requires an IP from China to log in. Which country are you from?]

[D: China.]

[C: Oh oh oh, I see, your English name, right, makes sense.]

[C: So uh, actually, I messaged you today because I wanted to discuss something with you.]

[D: What is it?]

[C: Are you…..patriotic?]

Jiang Chen: …..

[C: Ai, no, I just want to say, I heard that the National Cyber Security Agency set up an assessment, it’ll be this Saturday, as long as you pass the political review, anyone can sign up. I’m a little afraid of strangers…’s okay when we’re separated through the computer screen, but if I really sit with others or go for an interview, I will get a panic attack, so I want to find someone to go with me.]

Jiang Chen looked at the screen and didn’t know what to reply for a long time. After about a minute, he responded:

[D: You want me to go with you?]

[C: Yeah!]

[D: Why?]

[C: Aren’t you in Yan City? Apart from you and me who are in Yan City, God A and God S are the only ones. God A has been hidden for a long time, and no one can find him. That guy S is just like his letter, S. I fear him even across the screen, so I can only ask you.]

Jiang Chen stroked the keyboard, his eyes flickering slightly:

[D: You can track everyone’s IP.]

[C: Yeah, but don’t worry, I  will never track your specific IP, I only target cities, count it as a hobby. I do have a principled bottom line.]

Jiang Chen hung his fingers on the keyboard for a long time before typing:

[D: I want to ask you a favor.]

[C: What is it? Check people’s IP?]

[D: More or less.]

C replied after a while:

[C: You should also be able to do this kind of thing yourself. Although I’m good at it, with your ability, you should be able to hack into even the National Cyber Security Agency.]

[C: I don’t mean anything else, it’s just that I watched the ranking match between you and G before. His intrusion skills can be regarded as the top in the world. At that time, what you were competing with him on was also intrusion. Since you can win against him…..why do you want me to track it for you?]

Jiang Chen’s fingers paused, and he pondered for a moment before typing:

[D: There is specialization in each industry, and it is not an ordinary IP, I can’t track it.]

[C: How unusual is it?]

[D: Maybe in this world, no one has been able to track it yet.]

[C: Interesting, I will do this favor, when?]

[D: Within a year.]

[C: …]

[C: I’m really curious, what’s behind the IP that makes you so cautious, okay, within a year, come find me anytime.]

[C: Then about what I said?]

[D: Wait a moment.]

Jiang Chen opened the dialog box to chat with 196 and sent a message, and received a reply soon after.

[D: I can’t accompany you, but if you are just afraid and want to find someone to accompany you, I can help you find someone.]

[C: Who? Wingnet? Do I know them?]

[D: 196.]

[C: He seems to be online, let me check.]

After a few minutes.

[C: Who… he, why am I feeling so uneasy.]

[D: ?]

[C: I just checked his IP, and found that S and him are in the same place, and they are very close, D, don’t trick me, I’m really scared of S, don’t tell me you two know each other in real life, and are joining forces to mess with me.]

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Jiang Chen was silent for a moment, and he didn’t know what to reply for a long time. After thinking about it, he sent a message to 196:

[D: Just now C checked your IP and found that there is another IP near you. Was there someone else next to you?]

Mo Xi, who just lost the game and was feeling dejected, came back to himself instantly when he saw this message. He glanced at the man who was currently looking at his laptop attentively, and his Adam’s apple moved, saying cautiously: “Little neph…..Xiao Yue, your IP seems to have been followed.”

Shi Fengyue didn’t even raise his eyes, and said flatly, “I know.”

  1. That I hadn’t seen coming. I thought Shi Fengyue would be A or something and not S. Though that’s also somewhat fitting somehow. 😅

    Thanks for the chapter!
