Query on IP connections & security
I was going through the hardinfo application and when I got to "IP
connections" I noticed the following connections have the "Established"
status using TCP and both on port 443 (SSL and HTTPS).
One of these connections is to 188.8.131.52 (which doesn't seem to have a
listing in the whois database that means anything) and 184.108.40.206
which points to http://www.proxad.net according to whois
What applications could I have on my machine that would establish tcp
connections with either of these using ssl/https?
Also, although I was under the impression that the portmap service was
not enabled at boot up, it would appear that it is running in the
background. I recall that portmap used to be a security risk, but is
this still the case and should I be concerned?
