Im Being Monitored/Watched?

I've got a pretty serious privacy issue.

I have two Opal Telecom IP's that are following my every move, they follow me to every page that I visit.

The two IP's in question are:

62.24.222.131
62.24.222.132

I will be looking to switch ISP as soon as my minimum contract period expires.

Why are these two Opal Telecom IP's following my every online click?
Guess what? I'm not a robot!

they are DNS servers not IP addresses

Re: Im Being Monitored/Watched?

Why are they always everywhere that I am?

My dynamic IP always starts with either 78, 89 or 92.

For the last week or so, the above two IP's have been shadowing my every online click.

Im web savvy enough to know that I shouldn't have 2 extra IP's following me around the net.

Re: Im Being Monitored/Watched?

Im not doubting what you are saying.

But why have they only started to appear along side me over the last week or so?

You know, like why haven't they been appearing beside me for the last 7 months?

Re: Im Being Monitored/Watched?

I administrate/run quite a few forums/websites, they have been constantly with me for the last week or so.

Screenshot:



They even look at different pages and arrive/leave at different times.

But for the last week or so, one of those IP's is always with me.

Re: Im Being Monitored/Watched?

Sure I understand what you are saying.

But why would they be looking at different pages to me?

I mean at some points, me, and those two IP's are all viewing/looking at different pages on the same site.

Also, why have I never seen these over the past 7 or so months? It's only been like this for the last week or so.

Re: Im Being Monitored/Watched?

Yeah this is the major concern, those IP's are in the web server logs.

They always seem to turn up within 0 to 60 seconds after me.

And like I have posted before, they even view different/independant pages and lurk around for as long as im connected.

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing to hide, but this is getting spooky.

Re: Im Being Monitored/Watched?

Hiya,

In the screenshot above, are you the user on Firefox? Do you use Internet Explorer?

The reason I ask is that the other 2 dns server addresses are showing as "guest" visitors and are using Internet Explorer. Just looking at the screenshot it just seems that another Talk Talk user (of which there are millions) is also visiting the same forum as you. Don't forget the majority of the Talk Talk userbase will be using those Talk Talk dns addresses (they are not IP addresses).

In the screenshot of the forum above, your IP address is showing as you can view it, but I would think that other users of the forum wouldn't be able to see it, they may well have the same view as you do of the other users, ie; just the dns servers they and you are using.

How do the guest users usually show? Can you give us the forum web address, so we can visit as guest and check this out?

Some answers are better provided on another forum, on here it seems sometimes the French revolution when things are spelled out the way they are. And I want to keep my noble head on!
