Look at my photo evidence. WA.exe is worms armageddon (a 2d game), it has nothing to do with like akamai (microsoft) yahoo or opera ips yet; NETSTAT shows WA has control of those ips simply because I closed opera and they were switched over.

 

Is this really a bug? it happens on win7 and 10 but on 10 I think and not sure it goes to [system] this is dangerous cause if is really switching to wa then my game is uploading my game data to microsoft! and yahoo! and that's not private cause it can happen with other things too.

 

So I need you to tell me how to find a way to confirm that WA has control of those ips

and demostrate this bug with more sensible apps once the error can be replicated..

 

alright thanks.

That shows wa.exe only being involved with two connections, both to "wormnet.team17.com." One of those connection is open, the other partially established (in the process of being connected?, or a partially negotiated connection). 

 

In short wa.exe is phoning home. Whether that is expected or not (legit multiplayer gaming? or privacy invasion?), I'll have to leave for you to decide - I don't know WA.

 

wa.exe is not listed as being associated with any other of the listed connections.

 

Netstat reports things at the level of the network stacks (then, if you ask it nicely, tries to match its connections back to a process id). Even if a bug/random occurrence caused it to misreport that association, the second process would not have the 'handle' to the connection and could not execute calls against it.

Further, Akamai does not specifically relate to Microsoft. Akamai is a content delivery service used by many many companies to deliver faster server access:

"akamaihd.net, a content-delivery network used by companies like Ubisoft, Twitter and Facebook to speed up their services"

"Worms Armageddon is a strategy game developed by UK-based company, Team17

Publishers: MicroProse, Sold-Out Software, Green Pepper, Ubisoft, TryMedia"
