SVCHOST:1136 Connected to Akamai
Posted on 2003-10-26
I'm using an IP tool that shows me my PC's IP connections.
It has revealed the IP address 126.96.36.199:80 has established a TCP connection to SVCHOST.EXE:1136
188.8.131.52:443 to SVCHOST.EXE:1136
I looked up both of these IP addresses and they are owned by Akamai. It appears that this company hosts services for hundreds of other companies including Microsoft and many other "big" names.
I'm somewhat suspicious, but have run the lastest version of Ad-Aware and it did not flag this.
Any ideas as to what these connections might be doing?
Note: I'll need a concise and precise answer to award the full points. No guesses please.
