Avast proxy connects to weird IP 212.95.74.75
« on: February 09, 2020, 10:22:31 AM »
Hello,

My com.proxy.avast connects to 212.95.74.75 IP address port 80 (hosted by SdV-Plurimedia) when I start browser.
Few exchange since the remote Apache server replies with "403 Forbidden"

Does someone else have experienced such a connection attempt coming from Avast proxy ? (avast for Mac v 14.3)

Thanks and regards

would you mind to try it with Web Shield off? It may be just the browser. Some browsers do connect to URL from your history, cache etc. to make your browsing smoother. And as web shield (com.avast.proxy) checks all the connections from browser then it may look like the connection is innitiated by the proxy. But it's just a proxy...

Quality is also a feature.
