I have several applications on my computer which are attempting to connect to a small hand-full of IPs over port 80(http). This seems suspect to me and I'm not sure how to proceed. Currently I am using Little Snitch to block the IPs however this is causing some things to not work.
IPs in question:
Looking up these IPs on Who.is reveals they are owned MCI Communications Services, Inc. d/b/a Verizon Business (MCICS)
The applications I have seen trying to connect to these IPs
- Private Internet Access, Although it has since stopped since I updated it to the latest version.
- Google Chrome
I believe I have seen other applications in the past attempt to connect to these IPs, however, the ones above are attempting to as of me writing this.
What could be causing all of these seemingly unrelated applications to try to connect to these IPs?
