Just to clarify, what exactly is that domain? It's not harmful? 

I guess I'm also trying to understand why I would be redirected to www.equifax.com.au via Sticky Password at all?  It's not a site I've ever accessed, and do not have it in Sticky Password.  It didn't really make sense to me, which is why I thought that the alert from MalwareBytes could well be a valid block of a phishing attempt?

Hello,

No, that domain doesn't appear harmful. I'm not sure why Sticky Password is shown to be the application communicating with the domain. You might want to visit here just to get someone to look through your diagnostic logs if you're still interested.

I realize this is a long shot, but just out of curiosity, do you have a program installed called "finPOWER Connect" by Intersoft Systems? It's a file I see that communicates with that domain according to this.

No, I don't have that program.

Given that StickyPassword was trying to access an outbound connection that wasn't expected, perhaps it was actually correct for MalwareBytes to block it as a phishing attempt?
