I've been monitoring my network traffic with Little Snitch, and today, when launching Chrome, just the default Chrome tab (shows most frequent sites), it alerted me Chrome was trying to connect over SSL to the domain
According to whois lookup, this domain is registered to a "dedicated server" that is also an Amazon AWS instance (goldenticket-658146952.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com). The entry indicates its IP address is in Ashburn, VA, right outside of D.C.
Pointing a browser at disconnect.me brings up some company site about browsing security, with a product called Disconnect that I have never heard of or installed on my machine.
What else can I determine about this traffic? I can't account for it, and I've run Chrome several sessions with LS3 without seeing this before.
