Title: "connecting to cloffext.com" a concern?
Post by: Circlotron on September 03, 2019, 12:42:09 pm
Just tonight I noticed on Firefox when I go to Google, down the bottom where it shows you all the various servers you are being connected to, it also says "connecting to cloffext.com". Some sites list it as a Windows malware thing. I put a line in my hosts file to block it, so is it something to be concerned about on my Linux system? Mint Mate 18.3

While looking it up, other people were having this trouble and also with "connecting to fileserver.xyz"' I removed Best YouTube Downloader and it doesn't seem to be happening now. Wait and see what happens.
