HIPS 8.0 FireSvc.exe process connecting to McAfee IP (HTTPS)

Hi,

Just been running TCPView for something completely unrelated, however I noted that FireSvc.exe appears to be connecting to a McAfee IP over HTTPS.  What is the purpose of this connection?

Cheers,

Trusted Source... McAfee KnowledgeBase - TrustedSource functionality for Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0 <slaps self on head>.  One of my colleagues sensibly pointed this out 🙂

I would have thought it would be mfefire, and not firesvc for this, however?
