at least netscape only sends a referer if i used a link.
when i enter an url, e.g. www.google.de after downloading a file, google
doesn't know which site i visited before.
what about the easiest questions:
- did you used ssl or do you trust all the providers between your friend
and your server?
- do you trust your friend?
- do you trust the knowledge of your friend, e.g. that he has no
trojaner on his client?
- do you trust all the software your friend installed? google toolbar,
internet explorer itself, ....
