Any idea what this means?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently went to change my email on ebay and in the confirmation email, it says this:

Change of email address request was made from:
IP Address: 10.2.116.213
ISP Host: 10.2.116.213

However, that is NOT my ip address. I double checked this. I then tried to trace the IP addy and get some msg about it being private and I can't get any more info on that? Kind of confused. I hope my internet traffic isn't being routed through some box by a rootkit or something? Anyone got any more info on that IP addy or what might be causing this? Whatismyipaddress.com reports my correct IP though.

Edit - just checked, these are not the internal address for my router's network either which are in the format of 19*.***.1.x (x increasing by 1 with each pc connected)

that ip is normally for corporate networks.
But its simple. If it wasn't you change your email password to something more secure. I advice you use something like lastpass and use the generator to make a random character 14 digit password then have a smoke and a pancake

It was me (as explained in the OP) changing the email and putting the request in. Could that IP just be ebay's IP or something since I clicked the option from within their site?

doesnt matter. be safe change your password just incase. People build their whole privacy empire on a single email account. Rather be safe than sorry. No use chasing ghosts.

lol problem solved. Did change my passwords though before I got the answer:

FYI, there's no need to hide your local IP address. They are in the 192.168 block. I know this because there are only two blocks of IP addresses allocated for private networks (like your Wi-Fi network): the 192.168.x.x group and the 10.x.x.x group.

eBay claims the request was made from *their* computer (the only way it would see the 10.x.x.x block IP address), so it's not you getting rooted. It's likely just a bug in eBay's system.
