Why does Dropshare attempt to connect to "mkswap.net" on port 443?

This has been fixed. Dropshare is now connecting to 

Hostname: getdropsha.re

Port: 443 (SSL/TLS)

to check for software updates.


If you're using the standalone version of Dropshare, the app will attempt to connect to a secure server to verify if an update is available. Currently, Dropshare will attempt to connect to the following trusted server / port to check for software updates, which is no reason to worry about:

Hostname: mkswap.net

Port: 443

In case you have any more questions or concerns please just drop us a line, we're happy to help.
