View Full Version : Phone home?

I just got a popup from ZoneAlarm, with the following:

Information Received:
Packet sent from (HTTP) to 24.xx.xx.xx (TCP Port 1784) was blocked
Status Dropped
Status Code 100002

10.* IP's are reserved for private addresses, so does anyone know what could be going on here? What about the unusual port number? I looked up this port # and here's what I got:

finle-lm 1784/tcp Finle License Manager

Sounds fishy..

I've also been getting a lot of connection attempts (ZoneAlarm popup) from advertisers (I know because I ran whois) on odd port numbers - anyone getting the same?
