Hi, I've noticed the last few times I've ssh'd into my linux laptop box at home that I've had strange activity coming from this website. Any ideas why the hell my machine randomly communicates with this website? I've ran chkrootkit and a full virus scan using f-prot and come up clean. What the hell could be causing this? Makes me want to DOS this damn webpage.. Grrrr.. Frustrated.... When you plug in newswww2.thny.bbc.co.uk to a web browser it brings up their site. I just have NO IDEA why my box randomly communicates with this damn uk website. F@#K IN A. Please help. I need to setup a host.deny filter for now at least to block this. Any tips/ideas appreciated.. I hate strange network activity. Yeah, I'm nuts.. F-ing interweb.
check your ps output for a process that is doing this. just sounds like a news ticker or something. possibly an rss feed in firefox or something.
Hey, thanks buddy.. I'm way to paranoid for my own good.. Your probably totally right about this. I do have firefox open on that laptop right now at home with the sage (RSS_reader) plugin installed so that would make sense. Damn, I'm loosing it.. Just trying to lock things down and learn a little in the process. I was very pissed that my knoppix box randomly started serving port 80 using thttpd out of no where earlier.. grrrr... Angry user on board..
