Suspicious network activity linked to MBAM

Recommended Posts

Just recently I was alerted by Little Snitch of connection attempts immediately after login, the first by Malwarebytes Protection to mullvad.net. When the first connection was approved, a subsequent one was made, SettingsDaemon to ingest.sentry.io on TCP port 443 (https).

On further research, it seems this is most likely tracking related to attempts to upsell a VPN service.

I already have a VPN that I have been happy with for years, so have now blocked both connections. When I blocked the SettingsDaemon connection, it immediately attempted another connection (denied).

Malwarebytes needs to stop this behavior. I have several active premium subscriptions — I'm not paying to have my time wasted.

Also, there needs to be an option to remove the "Online Privacy" - VPN Premium Plus section from the Premium Dashboard.

It's a recurring annoyance every time I open the Dashboard.
