unsolicited outbond traffic

by local support In reply to Humble utterings

<p> </p>
<p>This evening I noted some outbound traffic, that I myself had not initiated. I had no applications running, only the AV and firewall. There was also an automatic MS update. I guess some of them are legitmate.</p>

unsolicited outbond traffic

by OnTheRopes In reply to unsolicited outbond traff ...

I wonder what firewall and AV solution you use and how they're configured. Feel free to send me peermail, create a new Tech or Misc. discussion or just post here even though blogs are a cumbersome way to "discuss" anything.<br /><br />One reason I wonder is that using Google for 213.155.151.184 for one led to a Russian billing website and the site itself is in Amsterdam.. Unless you have several programs set to update automatically <strong>and</strong> can positively identify the ISP addresses (using WHOIS at: <a href="http://tinyurl.com/hu5ux">http://tinyurl.com/hu5ux</a> or similar) as the outbound traffic I think you may have security issues to iron out.
