This is at least an odd word to use.  

"lacking in frankness, candor, or sincerity; falsely or hypocritically ingenuous; insincere: Her excuse was rather disingenuous."

so...

"I didn't give you my seat because I didn't realize that you are a senior citizen."  She's pretending to be naive, but is in fact simply self-centred; this is falsely ingenuous.


How this applies to web traffic currently defeats me.  Is it a technical term of art used in the security industry?
