XF 1.4 Spam cleaner shows legit user as shared IP

Hi guys,

Bit of an odd one.

Im not sure if this is an issue with xenforo, or if i have malware on my computer or not.

Basically, when using the spam cleaner to clean (spammers) - it comes up showing the IP address as being shared by a legitimate user - Me!

I find this very odd. Is it possible that someone could be doing this maliciously?

Is it a dynamic IP address?
If so, that is entirely possible.

Do you use any add-ons which send welcome PMs to newly registered members?
I seem to recall there being an issue with an add-on which does that.
