New tool exposes anonymous wikipedia edits

A new tool developed by Virgil Griffith called Wikipedia Scanner allows users to trace the IP addresses of people who have made edits in Wikipedia. The online encyclopedia allows anyone to edit it, but it keeps detailed logs of all the changes that have been made. The scanner has traced some edits in encyclopedia to large companies that appear to have changed damaging content. Some of the changes that have been traced back to large companies have included changes made by Wal-Mart, Diebold Inc. and the British Broadcasting Company as well as the Vatican. Griffith says he has created the tool to make public relations disasters. He has also said that it is impossible to say whether the changes were made by someone at the organizations or if they were just made by people who had access to the organization's network.
