Hi all, Long time reader here, first time poster... I have Little Snitch installed. I use an app [that shall remain nameless in case this is a false alarm], but I was recently reviewing connection attempts in Little Snitch, and it claims that [this app] accessed "anonops.com" I checked this website and it seems to be an IRC server run for/by Anonymous (?) but I don't really know. I know it gets its app updates by connecting to [this app's official domain], so this was something different. Can anyone shed any light as to why [this app] was trying to access this domain? I don't want to accuse anyone of making malware, but obviously if the developer was responsible I can't just ask them and assume I'd be given an honest answer. I'm running Mountain Lion and follow security best practices (don't open/install packages unless I know where they come from, browse the web with Java disabled, use Click2Flash and AdBlock, have "open safe files" disabled, no pirated software, etc.) so I wouldn't have thought I'd have been infected with anything. I'm open to any suggestions as what to do next. (I cross-posted this question to apple.stackexchange.com too) Unfortunately, I haven't been able to detect another connection attempt yet otherwise I could try and figure out what's going on. I just want to emphasise I'm not accusing the developer of anything. If, somehow, I do have malware maybe it's possible it's just using this application to access the Internet? Or maybe there's a legitimate reason it would need to contact this domain? Any help would be *really* appreciated. Thank you.
