I asked the following question on WorldBuilding SE.

How can invading aliens access the Internet to find out all about us?

I now find that I am unqualified to judge the best answer. These range from "It's impossible" to "It's easy".


Is there any on-topic question I can ask on IS that will help me judge the answers?

For example

I could ask an expert here to judge for me - but that seems unlikely to be on-topic.

I could ask a similar but more specific question here and compare the results.

Something else that I haven't thought of.

The question you've asked is not a security question, so it would not be on-topic here. You're asking about networking basics.

And Renan's answer has the technical details you require.

  • Thanks. One of my concerns that the aliens would at least have to break through some security barriers but, if that's not an issue I'll accept your advice. Sep 11, 2020 at 17:25
