During startup, Little Snitch reports that SoftwareUpdateCheck is attempting to connect to apple.com. A few connections go by that look legitimate and then it wants to connect to _swcdn.apple.com.akadns.net on port 80._

The reverse DNS lookup is to cds471.dal.llnw.net.

Intego VirusBarrierX5 reports no virus and MacScan reports no malware.
Is it a root kit or a legitimate connection to APPLE.COM? (I doubt highly that).

Software path is: /System/Library/CoreServices/SoftwareUpdate.app/Contents/Resources/SoftwareUpda teCheck
