I was online this morning using the latest version of Firefox when I realised by the lights on my cable modem that some downloading/uploading was going on. Thinking this was strange I opened up Task manager and saw that it was Firefox which was using a lot more RAM than normal. I then opened up the Comodo GUI and saw that the traffic using the bandwidth was from my IP address to TCP and another entry also TCP I checked these entries out on Whois.com but to be honest I haven't enough know how on PC's to analyse the results. Could someone help me out here and tell me what this is?. Is it OK or do I have a possible security problem?. My OS is Win XP Home SP3 and all up to date. I use Comodo Firewall V4 & Defence+ on the ProActive setting along with Avira V10 all up to date. I scanned my PC on Sunday with Avira which came up clean. I also use SAS & MBAM as on demand scanners which were both used over the week end and also came up clean.
