IP 26039000708615855784158573 redirects to 18.153.101.109

I work with an eCommerce platform that recently reported a user's IP address as "26039000708615855784158573", and interestingly, this URL redirects to the page for IP address 18.153.101.109:

* URL: https://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/260390 ... 5784158573
* Redirects to: https://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/18.153.101.109

How does this work? I cannot find any source that understands this conversion.

I'll dig into it, but "26039000708615855784158573" is not an IP address. It appears to be an IPv6 address missing the separating ":"

The underlying issue of trying to "fix" a specific type of an invalid entry, and correct it, has been resolved.

Since the IP address is invalid, missing the ":"s, it now shows a generic 404 error message.
