Omega2+ causes suspicious firewall traffic



  • I have just taken a freshly updated​ Omega2+ and left it sitting idle. I noticed on my firewall that it seems to be continuously streaming data at about 700bps in both directions. It seems to talking over port 80 to these ip addresses: 52.11.39.90, 52.32.17.28.

    My assumption is that it's got something to do with cloud.onion.io but since I opted out of the cloud service when I ran the setup, I wouldn't​ have expected it to be trying to register.

    Does anyone know what my omega2+ is sending​ to or getting from these servers?

    Thanks,
    Rod.



  • Both IPs look like being of Amazon.

  • 52.x.x.x/10 is Amazon Web Services, i.e., Amazon Cloud.
    I think Omega2 is doing its "ET call home" (no matter what) business.
