Hi, on my yahoo account, an IP address from Texas logged in to my account. The IP address is "209.191.92.109", I googled it and it appears to come from Yahoo itself. I visited the IP and it redirects to yahoo's email login.

And I use Ubuntu, and I don't have a virus (I scanned).

What is this IP address from? Should I take any action? Also, I visited the address, do you think a hacker could have hacked me?

No way to tell.

If you whois on the IP, there is a telephone number for the Administrator which you can phone.

The IP is registered to yahoo itself.

Contact them, it is their issue if any issue at all
