According to Barry Collins, a freelance technology journalist, an identifier such as the computer's MAC (Media Access Control) address would be required to find out exactly which PC the Wikipedia edits came from.
A MAC address is a unique code found in computer or networking equipment.
The former editor of PC Pro said:
The edit will show the IP address. That address will likely cover hundreds or thousands of PCs - it's highly unlikely to identify a single computer.
