I just keep coming back here XD
I decided to finally acquire a firewall for my computer (Comodo Firewall, if knowing such is essential.) As it requested me to start allowing programs to access the Internet, it asked me for something rather strange: to allow svchost access to an IP that appears like it belongs to a personal computer.
I looked into it a bit more, looking directly at svchost's connection logs. It was connected to 7 different IPs, and the only one that was legitimate out of the list was Microsoft's (for the Microsoft Customer Experience Program, which I decided to opt into for whatever reason). The rest of them appeared to belong to personal computers, upon looking them up in WHOIS (Various places around the globe... Africa, Asia, Bahamas, and America too.) The ports also seem to have no pattern associated with them, except they're around the 5000 to 7000 range (63421, 60023, 62727, 58555, 61219, 56643).
Call me skeptical, but I do not think my computer is supposed to be connecting with random addresses like this.
I am currently running Windows 8 x64.
