This address belongs to the PEER1 block :
$ whois 188.8.131.52
Peer 1 Network Inc. PEER1-BLK-08 (NET-72-51-0-0-1)
184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11
Peer1 Network PEER1-CDNSRV-03A (NET-72-51-51-0-1)
18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124
But the peer1 mirror present in the list is not it all in the same
network .. (in 64.34.8.x)

these checks at http://www.de.debian.org/dmc/today/ are not
automatically exploited yet.
So out of work or date mirrors may be present in the list.
