How trustable is the hostip database?

Postby picrap on Tue Dec 09, 2008 6:22 pm

Hi,

as the contributions are open, anyone could enter wrong data, isn't it?
My question is: how far can this go?
- I presume the city can be faked
- Can the country be faked too?

For example, if I have a security product relying on user country, can hostip.info database 100% reliable for it?

Pascal.
