Thread: vsmon connecting to internet

  1. #1

    Default vsmon connecting to internet

    I have just noticed that vsmon.exe is occasionally connecting to ip address 209.8.115.142:80. I noticed this on the outgoing log for my router and confirmed the connection in Sysinternals TCPView.

    According to ARIN, 209.8.115.142 is registered to Beyond The Network America, Inc.

    Some information on the net indicates that Beyond the Network America is "a known host of P2P poisoners".

    Anyone have information on this that might be helpful and how to block the outgoing connection. I have included 209.8.0.0 thru 209.8.255.255 as "Blocked" in Firewall/Sites.
