    Here's my opinion, yes the IP address, can be used to track people down. Any communication over the internet is tracked by IP addresses. IMHO, if anybody cared, Spam would not exist because emails can also be tracked by IP by the ISP. Sometimes I wonder if it's actually the virus/malware or any other security software programmer that starts it all so they create more business for themself.
    That's why I asked. Your main concern is to get rid of the bot, (before it becomes worse) because personally, you can't do anything, your ISP can, but I can safely assume that they won't

    If I understand your question correctly, the ports don't matter, there is only [1] IP per computer.
