While using internet (over Chrome), I noticed that
returned certain suspicious URL(s). A whois lookup suggested that all of those belonged to MarkMonitor. For example:
chrome 3224 jupiter 78u IPv4 109065 0t0 TCP 192.168.200.2:45519->hx-de-f95.1e100.net:https (ESTABLISHED)
There were 4-5 more such URL(s) each mapped to MarkMonitor. Furthermore, they are disconnected after closing Chrome and are not connected until it is restarted. The same thing does not happen with Firefox.
I could find an answer over the internet (on Google forums). It is very short and does not get into details. Is MarkMonitor having a backdoor in Chrome and tracking me? I have disabled third cookies and history and cookies are always cleared after closing the browser.
