Possible attack on Little Snitch?

Postby Turbot » Mon Jul 10, 2017 5:56 pm

Hi folks. Here is a strange one:
I run LS with OS 10.6.8 and Epic browser in VPN mode. I visited a website requiring login and got the usual simple log in screen. Accompanying this I noticed a lot of network traffic (at least 1 MB) in Apple's activity monitor that did not show in the LS montior at all. That is unusual and maybe not good I thought. I tried another website with a simple login page - nothing unusual, then went back to the first and the big transfer (both in and out) repeated. I looked at recent items in the Apple menu (actually thinking of going into the Console logs, but noticed that three files from /Library/DiagnosticReports/ relating to LS had been recently accessed (not by me and these require root access even to see them).
My question is - could this be a sign of an attempt to interfere with LS by malware on a website? I am using another computer until this is resolved.
