Why so many established connection on booting dispVM? Hacked?

I open disposable and then I checked “ss -atpu”. What I got is more than 10 established connections, without even having visited a website or did anything.

For the past few years I have been constantly harassed and have no privacy at all. Meaning my devices were compromised.

Can somebody help me, telling me is there anything I should be concerned about?

it is just firefox phone home…

Even IP like that one 93.184.220.29, which pops on many places as not good?

Indeed 93.184.220.29 and other IPs that have bad reputation originate from Firefox. You need to launch a Disposable without Firefox and monitor it. Firefox generates too much noise.

Run it in your disp template (dom0$ qvm-run fedora-34-dvm xterm) and change a few settings in firefox. First run brings up its privacy page, so if you really want to be carefull, you can run the terminal, set netvm to none, then start firefox and make your settings. set new window and tab to blank, disable pocket, search suggestions, etc. After shutting down the template, new dispvms shouldn’t make all those connections.

Not a recommended strategy, as it can lead to profile fingerprinting (all profiles will have the same name for example).
