I setup my projects to run as REMOTE Web site. My projects contain thousands 
of files. 

A bit later in the day, our company web sites go down. 

"What the heck is going on?" 

I call our server provider and after a bunch of talk find out our company is  
currently sending 100s of packets of data at their web servers and our IP has 
been black listed. 

At this point the server provider suggest we have some malware on one of our 
machines or possibly a malfunctioning program. 

Long story short, I install wireshark (packet monitering software) and find 
100s of packets being sent out from netbeans. 

Not exactly sure what Netbeans is doing, I presume it's syncing files and or 
checking for code changes etc.

Shouldn't there be a limit to how many files it can scan / upload / download 
in a certain time period? 

Why is Netbeans doing this and is this a bug in the software?

Thanks!
