This reminds of the good old ICQ days where the IP address was listed in everyone's profile. I used to use a program called Sub7 to rotate other peoples screens and eject their cd trays to make they sh!t. The 90's were fun.
You kinda broadcast your IP address when you go online. It's NOT a secret.
That being said, this should NOT have happened nowadays. What kind of "patch" is that?
Always logging off any online services when done with them - that should be common sense, but a lot of people don't exercise it.

Anyways, logging off any online service when done using them is basic common sense - but a lot of people don't exercise it.
Who made that patch, anyways? that dude needs his arse fired for incompetence.
Finally, it sounds bad as it is, but you're broadcasting your IP address every time you're online. It's not a secret. The patch needs...patching, but it is not the end of the world.
