Also, we can find the IP on mails.

What is a "rogue webserver" ?

A web server belonging to "bad guys", or hacked by them, that runs code
using the found IPs to attack them.

As for finding addresses in mails, they
are typically random. By default in openSUSE. See "IPv6 privacy
extensions".

But if you want to make use of things like VoIP you would need a fixed
address, non private, because you do want to do things needing being
accessible.

You get both type of addresses for a computer? How know applications
which one to use?
