Can an untrusted application get my real IP address?

Hello. Can an untrusted application installed on whonix-workstation get my real IP address? Or is it not possible because of the isolation of Qubes? Thanks for answers


But anonymity requires security. It’s a bad idea to knowingly run untrusted applications, malware.


IP addresses are a 1990 threat model.

Quote Whonix - Overview chapter Full Spectrum Anti-Tracking Protection in Whonix wiki:

Hiding your identity is harder than just hiding your IP. Internet tracking companies don’t even need to know your IP address to be able to identify you. They have multiple alternative tracking technologies in their arsenal.
