    I am guessing that folks who deal with that sort of stuff find your post most instructive.

    Alas, I am not one of those folks. Please help me out.

    My guess is that some computer somewhere was trying to do something to/with your computer. Am I even close?

    In closing, let me say that I applaud you for being on at least one of the (apparently) government lists. It shows you are doing something right.

    stay safe.

    Kind of weird the secret service no? Although I can, say they supposedly investigate "every threat".

    UPDATE! Alabama high school says NSA was monitoring students on social media

    The NSA allegedly took an interest in the Lee High School student body after Auseel Yousefi, a straight-A student, posted a series of questionable tweets about getting into fights and hitting a teacher. Yousefi claims the tweets were intended in jest, but school security officials searched the student’s car and found a weapon, which he says is a “jeweled dagger from a Renaissance fair.”

    That was all the evidence school authorities needed to expel Yousefi for the semester and launch a district-wide information-gathering program aimed at discovering security threats and identifying gang members. The subsequent investigation led to a series of expulsions of students who were found posing on social media holding guns or throwing gang signs.

    It's nothing. Not to get too technical, it's basically a way for two programs to share confidential data on the same box. It's post of his desktop system and is perfectly normal operation. And, since it's Linux, the source code is out there and open for review.
