I am reading the auth logs and find this:

Jan 20 12:57:25 localhost-desktop sudo: root : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=localhost ; COMMAND=/usr/bin/gconftool --get /system/http_proxy/use_http_proxy
Jan 20 12:57:26 localhost-desktop sudo: root : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=localhost ; COMMAND=/usr/bin/gconftool --get /system/http_proxy/host
Jan 20 12:57:26 localhost-desktop sudo: root : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=localhost ; COMMAND=/usr/bin/gconftool --get /system/http_proxy/port

I didn't execute these commands. Is this a system thing?

Thanks for the help

Got these for several years now in my auth.log.

It is an automated task, for system updates if I remember correctly, checking to see if you have configured your system to use a proxy.
