Noticed over the past few months that Chrome connects to 151.101.60.133, or similar addresses. Usually when it first starts up, and I have seen it a few more times as well. It all seems to be associated with Fastly, which is a very large CDN. I am assuming its probably to do with a plugin or the like, though I am not 100% sure on that. Is anyone aware of what Plugins it could be. UBlock, HTTPSEverywhere, Privacy Badger and Res are what I have atm.

 

Thank you :)

After a bit of searching...this site is one of two domains...Google Translate.....does that look familiar to you? That is 2646.com.

The second one is friendsofpetworthpark.org....does that look familiar to you?

 

You can delete Third Party cookies and clean out Chrome's cache using CCleaner.

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Would be a good idea to scan the computer for adware using Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, Junkware Removal Tool if you haven't done that recently.

It definitely not adware or anything similar, I was recently declared clean by the malware forum. Well google translate is definitely familiar, it is a component of chrome. Never been on the other one in my life.

That Google Translate link takes you to is one of two websites hosted at 151.101.60.133.....and since you are not familiar with that site

is why I suggest you use the programs to scan with.

 

It may help to block third party cookies, too. That will improve your privacy and security as well.

In the end I don't think it was anything. Most of the addresses seem to be used on reddit, and one was for Privacy Badger. Just me being paranoid I guess.

My mistake, the IP address was 151.101.16.133, not 151.101.60.133
