I can't tell you what it is, but I can tell you that something on my network has been contacting "secure.footprint.net" starting in the last week. Since the only change or addition to any device on the network has been updating my iPad to IOS6, the OS or recently updated app would seem to be the best candidate. I only picked it up by looking at my list of recent domains on Open DNS.
Given what footprints.net do, I'm not best pleased about it.
After upgrading two Mac Mini servers from Snow Leopard Server to Mountain Lion + OS X Server, I noticed that "background network traffic" went up ... that is, traffic on the network when I'm not even doing anything.
Sniffing w/WireShark, I see that both of my upgrade Mac Mini's are now exchanging quite a bit of traffic with IPs that appear to be associated with www.footprints.net (or, at least when I telnet to port 80 on the IPs, I get a redirect to www.footprints.net, but reverse DNS for those IPs does not return anything).
I didn't notice this before the upgrades, and I am not seeing it on my other computers that are still on Snow Leopard. I did not install any apps from the app store other than OS X Server.
Was curious if anyone else noticed this? I believe www.footprints.net is a site for tracking location of cell phones, so I can't imagine what on my Mac would be doing this.
Oh, and I did upgrade Parallels as well to 8.0, but don't think that is a likely suspect. And I didn't install any other new software since then.
Curious if anyone else has seen this and has any idea what it might be?
