Off Topic! Auto-opening scocket

I have a poltergeist or gremlin running my Mac (MOS 9.9.2).

I have DSL with SBC and I always close the DSL when I go off-line. Since 
yesterday afternoon, something is opening a socket to my server. Every 
15 minutes, a socket is opened to SBC.

At first I thought it was errant script dribbled into the stack I was 
working on or into the home stack. Today, I closed all apps except 
Launcher and Stickies and the dohicky strip at the bottom. At precisely 
12:45 the socket opened. Every 15 minutes it opened again!

I cleared all the cookies. I just check the cookie jar and appears 
normal except for a site called ""

Anyone got an inkling what's happening?
