this is why shitty tcp-ip stacks (with guessable sequences/etc) are a
problem. Plus let's say I have two boxes, I spoof connection from A (make it
appear from B), if someone complains about B I go "I didn't do it, here, I
can proove it, my isp now monitors that stuff outgoing!". Or let's say you
have access to a bunch of computers on a hub network (sound familiar?) I can
just spoof one of the other IP's, or using dsniff hijack arp/ip's/etc.

TCP-IP doesn't even think about security.
