Hi Clinton,


239.255.255.250 is accessed by the SoundTouch music server via port 1900; It's used for Bose system detection on your network.  Sometimes antivirus and anti-malware software will detect programs as false positives and report them to be on the safe side.  Nothing to worry about!

 

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

 

Best,

Brandon

Thanks for confirming that it belongs to Bose. I've added it to my list of web exclusions.
