This is McAfee
Many incoming connections are from advertising and tracking companies. Whenever you see an advertisement on a web page the browser makes a connection to the advertising company's website. Even if you see nothing there may be code in the web page that connects to other companies in order to record and track your movements.
If you install a few add-ons in your browser it is possible to reduce the number of these third-party connections considerably. Try these two, and search for any others that your browser offers
- Abine's DoNotTrackMe (from abine.com)
- AdBlock (from getadblock.com)
Blocking advertisements and trackers will reduce the number of incoming connections, but there will still be many. It is useful to be able to identify the company making the connection, and if you have the IP address then something like utrace or whatismyipaddress will look up the ISP and the organisation associated with that address. There are many similar tools - just Google for "IP address lookup" and you'll see hundreds of sites offering that service.
You have answered my doubt.
If all of these connection entry are only about the advertising, I will don´t have any reason to be worried then, so I will not install the add-ons that you suggest for now.
I checked these IP using whatismyipaddress and recgonized these IP owners, but in that moment I still don´t understand why my McAfee are launching so many alerts since that day.
Thank you for your support and attention.
