    I've recently gotten a brand new PC and a hardware firewall. There are minimal applications installed on this new machine.

    Whenever I run Shroud of the Avatar (since Oct 15 2020) and eventually quit the game, my firewall has been notifying me that my PC is trying to connect to a malicious IP out in the Netherlands. I've since blocked these IP's, but each time I run SotA, it keeps trying to connect to malicious IP's out in the Netherlands.

    The IP addresses (so far) are listed below:
    195.35.245.30
    212.178.135.62
    95.217.162.125

    I've done extensive research on my PC, virus checks, use by other applications...all come back negative. SotA seems to be the culprit trying to connect to the Netherlands.

    are you running the application directly or through the launcher? the launcher may be connecting to the netherlands if you have p2p sharing enabled in it.
