It potentially seems like a malware or trojan trying to make connections to the hosts on the Internet. tcpdump might show what's happening. I have seen recent increase in machines infected with WannaCry or Feodo Trojans to incessantly try and connect to a lot of hosts on the Internet on port 21 or 445. It increases state count by 10x at least. Regards, Nishant -- Sent from my Android device with K-9 Mail.
