How can I get the IP address of client which downloaded my repository?

Background

There is something wrong with our security settings, the source code of my company’s product has been exposed to public through Github, we are investigating the reason and eagerly want to find out who did it.

We’ve suffered a huge loss because of this incident, we would like to terminate the loss and find out the person who exposed the source code through GitHub Supoort Community.

Inquiry

  1. Is there any possibility that I can get the IP address of client which downloaded my repository?

  2. Can I find out the IP address of the client whom owns a repository?

  3. Can I ask administrator of GitHub to do a comparison and get the result of which public repository is currently using our code?

Expected

  • Find out the IP address of the person who exposed our code to public

  • Find out who are currently using our code and contact them.

Try to contact the GitHub support directly:
