Before we install any  software in our system within Gilead organization, we do the software security assessment. During our assessment for " UCSF ChimeraX v1.1", we found below external network connection is being made.

  1.  Connection to on tcp/80 (www.msftconnecttest.com)

*             Why the network connection is being made and what is the reason behind it?
*             Is there any sorts of data transfer is being happened from the user system, if yes then what kind of data are being transferred?
*             Is there any settings in the application to disable the network connections?
*             If users can use the software to export/import data. Is there any cloud service associated with this?

It would be of great help if you can kindly give a clarity for the above network connection ASAP.
