I was going trough my network log this night, and discovered that my Ubuntu box has made several connections to rkhunter.sourceforge.net. It starts with this:

DNS Standard query A rkhunter.sourceforge.net

Then followed by a lot of TCP and HTTP traffic.

Is this normal? Why is my computer connecting to this address and transferring data now and then?

I have rkhunter installed from the software repository.

rkhunter periodically checks for and downloads updates to the database files. Sounds normal to me.
