In a convenient admission given the charge levelled at the UK governmentby the VandaSec hacker team that someone at DwP has set up ISIS Twitter accounts, the Cabinet Office now says it’s been selling off IP addresses to make money for taxpayers.
The world ran out of IPv4 addresses completely in July of this year, raising the value of addresses significantly and triggering a land-grab for anything that’s available.
The government owns millions of unused IP addresses which we are selling to get a good return for hardworking taxpayers. We have sold a number of these addresses to telecoms companies both in the UK and internationally to allow their customers to connect to the internet. We think carefully about which companies we sell addresses to, but how their customers use this internet connection is beyond our control.
