I keep getting incoming queries to my home computer, coming from various external IP addresses. My malware software blocks these queries and reports them to me. One of the queries was from an ip address When I did a 'whois' on this address, I got information saying the query was from the RIPE database query service, and came from the Ukraine. Can you enlighten me about why my home computer is being queried? Rhank you.
