Today I upgraded to Tor 6.0, I use Tor with a vpn with psuedo random exit countries habitually. While having 5.5 I noticed when I entered IP into DuckDuckGo while using vpn/tor it was Your IP address is in Ashburn, Virginia, United States (20147) which kinda freaked me the fuck out we all know the beasts that roam in Virginia.. Well after upgrading I find the same ip from DDG which is fucked cause I cannot find any leaks from my vpn to tor DNS or otherwise mind you my IP on exit node verify shows the exit node as does the Tor button but DDG is showing I am in virginia and the whois says Amazon so.. wtf?

  • It sounds like somebody is running an exit node in Amazon EC2 in the "us-east-1" region, which happens to be in Virginia. Not all of Virginia is scary beasts. What's your question? – Greg Hewgill Jun 1 '16 at 3:19
  • ok..I am aware tor nodes exist on amazon servers, why is every other what is your ip website showing me the actual tor exit node I'm connected to and ONLY Duckduckgo is showing me in Ashburn VA. And I do not mean sporadically I mean everytime I type IP in DDG. Tanks. – user13077 Jun 1 '16 at 3:28

Edit: Scratch that, you're using their onion, the IP it reports is the IP making the connection, which is where their onion is connect from and entirely unrelated to you, Tor, or your VPN.

Try using their non-onion address.
