Description

I have been watching the list of relays located in Chile, and suddenly there is a new relay [1][2] with high bandwidth and over 100 days of uptime, which doesn't make much sense. A quick search of the AS Name tells me that it should be located somewhere in Europe, probably Poland.

We're relying on MaxMind's GeoIP2 database for resolving IP addresses to physical locations, and MaxMind says this address is located in Chile. It's quite possible that MaxMind is wrong in this case. Unfortunately, there's no easy way for us to fix that other than hope that they will fix their database next month. Sorry!
