Summary0002706: Digital Master: Code exists that polls website for updates
DescriptionCode exists that gets a file from the website, apparently aimed at seeing if an update is available.

I haven't had time to dig into the code; it certainly is live. Looks like it's set to poll every five seconds (!). It might be disabled at runtime because it appears that it is connected to an option about checking for updates -- maybe that disables it in the wild. Either way, the product shouldn't connect to web sites that we don't control.

Steps To ReproduceFind all "UPDATES_URL", Subfolders, Find Results 1, Entire Solution, ""
  C:\Ham Radio\Digital Master\Digital Master\MainFrm.cpp(131):#define UPDATES_URL _T("")
  C:\Ham Radio\Digital Master\Digital Master\MainFrm.cpp(4745): App().ThreadWeb().RequestCheckForUpdates(this, UPDATES_URL, TRUE);
  C:\Ham Radio\Digital Master\Digital Master\MainFrm.cpp(7853): App().ThreadWeb().RequestCheckForUpdates(this, UPDATES_URL, FALSE);

Will have to take your word for this one. Can't test it (well... not without sniffing the network connection... but it's okay).
