I have a machine that directly connects to the internet. I have an unusual connection as shown above.
I have not used
VMWare for a while though. I know that the
exe file is genuine.
As a quick check, I located that file and checked the
MD5 value. It does not match the one given here: http://www.shouldiblockit.com/vmware-hostd.exe-84fe6a8a8c14a01f9b20ece6d7c42521.aspx
Also, the size is considerable larger than what is mentioned on the site. The site says a few KBs while I have it in MBs.
Is this supposed to be a cause of concern ??
I was made aware of the fact that this maybe a random sweep rather than a targetted attack
