Question about 'Privacy threat blocked' - what's the best coarse of action

Hi *,

With the 'Privacy threat blocked' notification I had the message that my password was being sent to some IP in the internet. I did a ping on the IP4 address and it resolved to some IP6 address but I was no wiser what DNS name was behind the address.

How can I identify which process is trying to send my password to an IP address out side of my home network?

What is the best coarse of action, besides restarting my computer to kill the process?

Your comments & know how are most appreciated,

Porky
