I am not a lawyer, but in my opinion...
No, analyse the traffic.
Either it's suspect - in which case you need to find out - or else
it's not - in which you quietly forget what you saw and don't pass it
on (beyond telling this group the users are legitimate).
Breaking privacy would involve looking at the traffic, deciding it
was legitimate, and then telling people about the conversations these
people were having.
On the other hand, by publishing the address, you've already breached
data confidentiality laws in some jurisdictions...
