Does anyone know, If your cookies/credentials are hijacked while your are logged in to certain website, is the the hijacker's IP address or device exposed to the site, or he is simply using your IP and device source? If you later check what IP's were logged to your website account, will you find your hijackers IP/device or not? 

Also, if you terminate your account connection (Log out) of the website, will that also log your hijacker out or he will remain logged in undetected?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, pardon me if its not :)
