In the logs of our (CSF) firewall I find rules like this:
Jan 7 04:38:54 31.186.175.143 52573 out 208.74.121.62 443 TCP

So our server at 31.186.175.143:52573 is trying to reach 208.74.121.62:443
A traceroute to 208.74.121.62 shows me that it's accessed via the cpanel.net domain

What is the cause of this request?

Hello :)

208.74.121.62 is the IP address for updatelogdrop.cpanel.net. cPanel collects anonymous usage data for information such as:

Version of cPanel before cPanel update starts
Version of cPanel after cPanel Update finishes
Run time of cPanel Update
Result code of cPanel Update (Success or Failure)


Thank you.
