I noticed that KIS’ AVP.exe (realtime scanner) connected to poneytelecom.eu for a short time, a site seemingly known for malicious content/attacks?
What is this connection used for?
Thanks and regards.

With traffic scan enabled, to put it simply, Kaspersky checks the connections to web sites by standing between the PC and the Internet. The sites are first opened in Kaspersky, checked for malware, then passed over to browser. At that moment you can see that avp.exe is connected to the sites.
If you see a connection to poneytelecom.eu, it is only checked by Kaspersky, the initiator of connection is, most likely, the browser. Check and disable unknown to you browser extentions. Or, a do a browser reset (for example, here is how you can reset Chrome : https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/3296214?hl=en).
