Not sure if I am in right section, but I do have a vague security concern.
I have been having real problems with an ISP & so have been measuring my down- & up-load speeds for past few weeks using ookla. As you will know, this has a graphic showing one's location, & then the ping server location. I was generally shown in the "correct geographical area" ie London until recently, when it looked as if I had migrated to Scotland. Ths change in location is quite consistent & marked.
I was fiddling around today & checked http://whatismyipaddress.com/ - completely different from my IP address obtained via W8.1's IPv4 details on my actual computer. This "wrong" address does however show my correct ISP. My concern is that eg "projecthoneypot.org" shows spam originating from this address, altho it gives it a current clean bill of health.
I tend to be fairly careful re downloads of freeware etc, & I also tend to turn off geolocation requests & do not use "social media" other than email & skype if I can help it. However, some weeks back I managed to pick up a rather nasty PUP that I had to use a range of tools to get rid of it (eg mbam, rkill, jrt etc).
So long & short of this ramble is that "something" made ookla decide I had moved to Scotland - should I be concerned? I have given my HHD & software pretty good clean outs with a range of AV tools (from CCleaner to SuperSpyWare to Avast & AVG) but day to day protection relies on MS Defender.
Any thoughts appreciated - & feel free to move to correct posting area
