Hi all,

I hope I'm not being paranoid....

Recently whenever I type "netstat -a" (OS: Win 2000) in the command window, it often shows established http connection to:

TCP PC:1871 63.150.131.179:http ESTABLISHED
or
TCP PC:1961 unicyclist.com:http ESTABLISHED


Obviously I'm not visiting one of these addresses. Virus/adware/spyware scans turn out to be negative. Even though I've installed freeware firewall, could these connections be made by keylogger, root kit, etc. by fooling the firewall with HTTP connection?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Thomas
