I was just checking my ZA alerts and noticed that ZA had blocked 3 outgoing attempts to 209.87.211.13. I checked to see who owns this IP and was surprised to find out it was ZoneLabs.

Why would ZA block outgoing attempts to its home base and more importantly why is it doing it in the background in the first place?
