Cookies can't be 'pushed' so something must be requesting a page from Google. Note that the cookie file is a shared resource and other internet-facing resources may be using Google.
Do you have any widgets, etc, that might be using Google? It may also be the 'Fraudulent sites' feature that is the source of the cookie. The black-listed sites Safari get are retrieved from Google.
I would test this myself, but I'm not on my Mac at present, sorry
Thank you for the tip!
According to Little Snitch, *Safari is automatically requesting the PREF cookie from Google*. Even if I am not browsing the web at all.
Specifically, Safari sends 2 requests. First to "safebrowsing.clients.google.com" on Port 80. The Google PREF cookie gets set immediately following this request. A couple seconds later, Safari sends a request to "static.cache.l.google.com"
