[Q] Why is my Nook kernel sending IP Packets to Amazon?
Full Disclosure: I go straight down the rabbit hole with the privacy stuff. I rely on good people like you to bring me back to earth.
Why would the Linux kernel of my Barnes & Noble Nook Color be sending packets to an IP address registered to Amazon? This was found through Shark for Root, although the screenshots are of Droidwall.
Most of the IPs below are Google, which I have accepted as the price of doing business with Android. A couple I have not fully investigated. But the Amazon IP sent me into a lather. If anyone has a reasonable explanation and/or see a problem with my process, I am all ears.
I am running the 7.2 Mirage kang, have no Amazon apps, and it has been multiple complete wipes since I visited their site.
The IP in question is the third from the end, IP address 22.214.171.124. Sent 15 packets. The log began right after boot and covers about 15 minutes.
Edit: okay, it appears I do not have a real good handle on adding screenshots. Give me a couple minutes and I will have them up.
Edit 2: should be up
