Hi All,

Due to excessive usage of a certain website, I've got some warning from my Security Team regarding the below website:

yqflpa.bay.livefilestore.com 354.96 GB  
yqflpa.by3301.livefilestore.com 104.39 GB  
yqflpa.by3302.livefilestore.com 96.04 GB  
secure.transfer.redsourceinteractive.com 55.16 GB  
lym3uw.bay.livefilestore.com  32.4 GB  

In total since last week, I've been consuming 642.95 GB of web traffic from the top website above ?

As per my understanding, my OneDrive is only 15 GB but how come I was using that much of a bandwidth in the past 7 days.
This one website secure.transfer.redsourceinteractive.com is also a mystery to me as I do not know what it is used for.

I must admit that I never closed my Google Chrome Browsers and shutdown my PC so it is always on 24 hours.
