This is part of the Microsoft Network cloud based services (So reserved). It is also needed to access Skype Web page. Reported on Virustotal by 2 companies as either malicious or malware. (https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/37b0982045cead2b8e63b0132c1264687b985c40a683436d1a3b3c4263854e37/analysis/1453119386/) Google Safe Browsing shows this site as partially dangerous. (https://www.google.com/transparencyreport/safebrowsing/diagnostic/index.html#url=msecnd.net) Google reports links on the site DO install malware (As opposed to being directed to third party sites). URLVoid reports a single contributor reporting this site as malicious (Malc0de.com) but when checked on that site, there was no listing. (http://malc0de.com/database/index.php?search=msecnd.net refers). Whilst this site is needed to access substantial parts of MS Network Services, it should only be temporarily allowed as needed and only with a good firewall, antivirus and script blocker.
