I've been keeping an eye on my whonix gateway logs lately and noticed two things. The first is this:
I am also seeing "Time has been changed" spamming my logs. It happens a dozen times a day for about 20 minutes each time. Should I do something about this? What does it mean?
The second thing is:
Jul 05 16:51:21 host Tor: We tried for 15 seconds to connect to '[scrubbed]' using exit $786926E8C497A6924ED69E23D48B13E92D1E07EE~memcpy at 126.96.36.199. Retrying on a new circuit. Jul 05 16:51:36 host Tor: We tried for 15 seconds to connect to '[scrubbed]' using exit $0818DAE0E2DDF795AEDEAC60B15E71901084F281~edwardsnowden1 at 188.8.131.52. Retrying on a new circuit. Jul 05 16:51:36 host Tor: Tried for 130 seconds to get a connection to [scrubbed]:443. Giving up.
Several dozens of lines like that. Also occures 20+ times a day. Should I be concerned or do anything about it?
I've made no modifications to the gateway or VM settings. I'm using it with Virtualbox in a linux distro. The gateway is completely up to date.
