This might be off-topic but I put it to you anyway. When you do a search on
your computer for files and folders under Windows XP it contacts ( on port 80. This behaviour seems to be a
backdoor channel using the front door. I cannot find any documentation on
this "feature". Perhaps someone on the list can enlighten me on this
surreptitious behaviour.
