Anyone familiar with SquidView? My firewall keeps interpreting these connection attempts as attacks. I recorded the IP and did some searching on the web. It seems that this is some kind of recorder for any and all internet activity for a given connected computer(I think). I decided to block the IP ranges that were attempting to connect to my computer. Is this a bad idea?
(If you are wondering, I recorded the domain name as us.a1.yimg.com but I couldn't bring up the website (if one even exists for this address). I'm not entirely sure what's going on here.
Note: I searched the archives here for any related topics and did not find any. IF there was a discussion I missed, please inform me and I apologize for being redundant.

I did a trace on the IP you gave tha results are listed below... Did you download anything from Tucows recently??? If so you may have inadvertently gotten some form of Spy-Ware, or the program you downloaded isn't what it says it is... Hope this helps...
