That's what I see when running `ss -p | grep mate`:

Code:

tcp    ESTAB      0      0       <my IP>:51567      77.67.29.137:http     users:(("mate-panel",18131,19))
tcp    ESTAB      0      0       <my IP>:51564      77.67.29.137:http     users:(("mate-panel",18131,16))
tcp    ESTAB      0      0       <my IP>:36133      77.67.29.186:http     users:(("mate-panel",18131,20))
tcp    ESTAB      0      0       <my IP>:36134      77.67.29.186:http     users:(("mate-panel",18131,17))


What it means? Is it hacked or what's the reason it establishes connections to these hosts?

afaik it is a one of Akamai Technologies servers. Used by IT companies to distribute (including) updates. One of their clients is M$ Update Center.
So may be it is just an update request/check.
The thing is why your panel checks for updates without informing you?

This is very disappointing - modern open source software behaves just like badly written proprietary ms windows software - goes on the internet for updates w/o even asking the user. What's next!!!

Is there any way to view exactly what it sends? Please suggest software.
