If you click on that link the first popup asks you to add 
internet movies 'to your desktop' so I'm assuming it is 
a client (adware/spyware etc) talking back to the host 
that you are seeing?

Subject: [Dshield] Port 17844

I've been seeing this destination port all day, however, my firewall 
provided a curious originating address that had me wondering what this 
port might be for (DShield shows no use for this port at this time).

Destination 67.70.xxx.xxx : 17844

Origin DNS : server.internetmovies.com

Loaded the FireFox browser and it finally located it as 

I'm wondering if this is a port being used for movie sharing (similiar 
to a P2P product) ?

Anyone else seen this or a rise in this destination port?
