Windows 7: svchost.exe (netsvcs) connects to weird hostnames - screenshot

svchost.exe (netsvcs) connects to weird hostnames - screenshot

So svchost.exe (netsvcs) connects to weird hostnames and I found out by chance, when I opened Resource monitor. What does this mean? My antivirus/firewall application seems to think there's nothing wrong. How can I be sure that there's nothing suspicious going on?

Thank you

Have you searched any of the "suspicious" entries? Could be just things from your isp provider but I don't know.

If you look at the screenshot, there are connections to (or from) Israel, Norway... I'm currently in Greece, so it doesn't make much sense, does it? Since it's svchost.exe...

It makes perfect sense. Internet connected computer with internet connected applications are going to be connected to a lot of things. I see nothing wrong here.

Yeah ok but what is the point of several international connections and not even to the same country, rotating once in a while? I, of course, do not run any applications that could do that.
