I was following this YouTube video 12 MORE Commands That Will Change The Way You Use Linux Forever - YouTube and at the 14:45 time stamp it shows how to check the weather using the terminal. Cool, I’ll do the same in my terminal. When I did it gave me the weather for Shanghai, China. I am in Texas. I have a Surfshark VPN running that shows I’m in Houston. To say I’m alarmed is an understatement. I then paused my VPN and ran the command ‘curl wttr.in’ and I got a different weather report however on the line that had the previous location of China it said ‘not found’. I had heard that China was purchasing VPN companies, could this be the reason? Is my VPS compromised?
I set my VPN to various other places besides Houston just to see and each weather report was coming from the appropriate location, not China.
