That fine, because I wanted it blocked. And I wouldn't be too worried if it was just trying to contact Google. But it is literally trying to acess the DNS on every web site that I've visited, and many more that I dont recognize. Sometimes it will try for 99 connects, before it gives up and tries again in a few minutes. There are literally tens of thousands of blocked access attempts.
I wrote to google about it, and got an automatic cryptic reply bascially saying they wouldnt reply to my email because there were related FAQs at their help center. Yah right - I've checked and they have some questions about how to get firewalls from blocking gnotify. THATS NOT WHAT I'M ASKING !!! I want to know why they are contacting every site I've visited, and what do they intend to do next.
CastleCops has a related thread about Gmail and spyware here http://castlecops.co...ite145717-.html
Google cant be so stupid that they are really bundling spyware or being spyware, can they ?????
Ive written to a zone alarm support forum about it, and hopefully there will be some innocent explanation,
but it really is beginning to bug me.
It appears it is always going to port 53 of the IP its trying to contact (which is legit for DNS), but where does Google get off wasting my bandwidth trying to connect to every DNS server of every site I've visited???? Not to mention the privacy issues. And how are they getting those IP's. I guess there is no such thing as a free lunch.
Google is my favorite search engine, but it wont be if this keeps up.
Dissappointed in google
