I have looked around but couldn't find anyone else with this issue. On my console (standard asus i7 laptop) running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS - I noticed in tcptrack that there are a lot of connections being made to an ip address belonging to Amazon EC2 services. I don't have any connection to amazon at all, and these connections are all status SYN_SENT. IP examples: 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
Is this a security offense of any kind, or is there a rational explanation?
Thanks in advance.
