Hello Avast Community,

I have been using Avast Premium Security antivirus, and I recently came across the Avast Secure DNS feature. While exploring its functionality, I noticed that the yesterday DNS server IP was displayed as 179.61.195.50 on my site during a check on ipleaks.net. Typically almost 99% cases in my checks, DNS server IPs are within the range of 5.62.40.XX. After WebShield new start it returned to 5.62.40.XX┬┤range.
 
I wanted to confirm if the IP address 179.61.195.50 is indeed associated with Avast Secure DNS or if it indicates a different DNS server. Could someone from the Avast team Community please clarify this for me?

I found some confirmation on old forum post ->
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=232214.0

and after xforce check https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/ip/179.61.195.50

But still ipleaks.net is showing this server as Hivelocity Inc machine:

https://ipleak.net/?q=179.61.195.50

therefore i want to be sure (dns hijacking)  :)
