esetid replied to esetid's topic in ESET Internet Security & ESET Smart Security PremiumI don't have any software by Tinet installed. Did a full in depth scan with ESET/bitdefender, nothing shows up. I was more interested in insights on why is a Windows system process trying to connect to a remote server that isn't owned by Microsoft nor by a CDN. Thanks a lot for the quick reply.
See image below. From time to time, this Windows process (Host Process for Windows Services) is trying to connect to a remote server (hosted-by.illuminati.es // 126.96.36.199 ). The domain name is suspicious. I would like someone more knowledgeable to shed some light on this, and if it's symptomatic of the presence of malware on my box (Win7 32bit) . Thank you. https://i.imgur.com/KFt10jW.png
