Sometime ago I started the windows firewall log(c:\windows\pfirewall.log
by default). It´s amusing to have a look to this file because we can see
the huge amount of noise out there.
I'm worry about some outgoing connections from my computer to port 443
(https) of unknown ip's address.
There´s a repetitive address which I cannot locate, it happens randomly
so I can track it with netstat -b, the address is 188.8.131.52.
Can someone of you tell me whose is that address?
In the other hand I also see normal https connections like msn
messenger, windows update and so on.
I'm running WXP SP2
Windows Defender installed (I don´t find that address in "currently
It´s a new computer and I have no extra software installed like p2p (I
swear it), even I don´t have an antivirus installed
Thank you very much
