I noticed in my Zone Alarm (free) firewall log that zlclient.exe is being given permission to access port 53 on various and different computers from day to day.
I copied the ip address listed in the log as the port 53 contact and some of the dsn's I looked up to give you a sample of what I'm seeing.

Why is a Zone Alarm client sneaking off on it's own to various computers? Some I recognize, others I don't. I'm unsure whether to be suspicious about it. I don't recall giving zlclient.exe any permissions. I see where a Zone Alarm program (called Zone Labs Client) is a permission program, among a couple other Window operating system programs, on the dashboard next to the unlock icon.
Thanks for your advise. -ray
