I posted a question on stackexchange: [snip]
and someone responded and it points to a 3rd party addon(spyware)
here's a summary:
One of my coworkers started exhibit the symptoms (random requests for http://www.example.com/scanImageUrl from IE8), so I hopped on her computer to figure out what was causing the issue.
The problem appears to be due to a malware IE add-on called Yontoo v2.051. I doubt anyone intentionally installs the software, but, among other installers, it is bundled with "EZ Fonts" ([snip]). Disabling both parts of the add-on from IE stops the issue.
[edit reason] links to malware, etc [/edit]
