Why are my webpages transferring data from www.chaosserver.com?
In the bottom left hand corner of the web page, instead of showing'transferring data from www.eclswansea.com, it now shows 'transferring data from www.chaosserver.com. Why is this? When loading the same pages in Internet Explorer I only see 'transferring data from www.eclswansea.com

Chaosserver.com is not a malware domain if that's what you're worried about.
It's possible that eclswansea has some sort of agreement with them to handle certain data when you visit their site.
If you're concerned about malware, download the free version of Malwarebytes from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free and then run a full system scan.
Incidentally, the version of Java you have installed is a security risk. Update via http://www.java.com/en/
Hi, Thanks for your reply. I am the administrator of eclswansea, and have no agreement with chaosserver.com. I have contacted my host server who also have no agreement with chaos server. Could this be a hack?
Thank you. Yes, apaarently the clock on the website originates from part of chaossoftware. Thanl you for your help
I have the same problem (long response times pof Firefox because it is always communicating with chaosserver.com). What bells am I missing?
