I has some cases where the Avast MAD daemon would take very huge CPU percentage (170% or more) on my macbook pro.

I followed the instructions in http://forum.avast.com/index.php?action=emailuser;sa=email;msg=783022) to set the logging to 0xffffffff

I killed my web-browser and almost all other processes, but these kept coming..

I could not figure out where these came from, and in the process of stopping every other process I accidentally killed launchd and thus rebooted the machine.

Now they are no longer happening, so I have to wait for the next occurrence.

I need some additional method to find out what caused these.

Hallo,
best way how to catch the culprit is to log netstat -an to get a clue what app is trying to communicate with the suspicious IP target.
We can't say more, especially when the culprit is inactive at the moment.
