1) No, we cannot confirm where the record came from, as it could have come from a variety of sources.

2) It's unlikely (but not impossible) that anyone maliciously added your name to our database- that's not the way BotScout works. For example, do you see anywhere here that you could add a name, IP, and email address to create a fake or malicious record? (The answer is, "no".)

3) There is no legal action you could take against anyone, even if you had a signed confession from them admitting that they somehow managed to add your name to the BotScout database. It's not a violation of your privacy, and you're not going to spend thousands of dollars taking someone to court for it.

We've temporarily inactivated the two records fond for that IP. If it gets caught again then it'll reappear.
