search.dnsadvantage.com on queue list

Asked by Fredzz on 2014-12-15

I just installed DC++ 0.843. I haven't used DC in half year or more. Now I noticed that there is automatically a file on my download list on the bottom transfering that says search.dnsadvantage.com ...... DOWNLOADING (CORAL) ...
Is that some kind of adware that I forgot to uncheck while installing DC++ or what is it? It appears to be gone now that I disconnected it, but I think that I've done that few minutes ago and popped back up.. There's nothing in my download queue so this must be some automatic thing ? I could not find anything on Google.

Cheers.

 As long as it downloaded from the official site, DC++ contains no viruses or adware of any kind. Since one of the 0.82x versions DC++ shows its http transfers in the transferview as well (such as version check and hublist downloads). It must have been one of them.

Can you help with this problem?
