    True, but with the handshake can be spoofed if you're not on a
    secure O/S. Michael Zalewski wrote a very good paper on sequence
    number prediction:

    and that's really all you need to spoof it, and maybe
    a router on your end that doesn't care about the source
    IPs being incorrect.

    But you would also need to spoof the TCP 3-way handshake before you can even
    send the HTTP GET request, which is um..... non-trivial ;-)
