I am using Qubes 4.1 last fully updated a couple of days ago. I have not made any modifications. My hardware has not been compromised.
I launched the Tor Browser in a disposable Whonix Workstation.
I checked ipleak and confirmed my ip was hidden and was instead an exit node in another country.
When searching in the top bar I got a message in the browser that my connection was reset.
I hit enter to search again, and I was taken to a Duck Duck Go page with the language set to that of my home country and not the exit node.
When checking ipleak again after I saw only the exit node in a foreign country again.
Unfortunately the duck duck go search does not show ip, but the very unusual behaviour of selecting a very specific non-American country of location concerns me.
I often get sdwdate errors, I am unsure if this is related.
I should also mention that my search terms were not in my own language so they could not have detected it that way.
