4.2 Network Monitor crashing on Mojave

I'm a problem with Little Snitch Network Monitor the day after upgrading to 4.2 and macOS Mojave 10.14.0.
I've tried rebooting this 2017 iMac to no avail.
Network Monitor keeps crashing.
Whereas normally LS checks my remote rules server once every 24 hours, logs show that it's reading them every minute now.

/var/log/system.log shows these messages:

com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (at.obdev.littlesnitchd[893]): Service exited due to SIGABRT

~/Library/Logs/Little\ Snitch\ Network\ Monitor.log shows:

btw, this seems to be related to remote rulesets. Doing a fresh install of LS without my rules and configuration seems to fix the issue that started when LS did it's daily check of my remote rulesets.

I saw in another thread someone say there's no uninstaller for LS, for info, there's one in the zip file with the installer you can use. It gives you the option to uninstall with or without deleting your config and rules.

If you use this remote ruleset feature, perhaps you should hold-off on upgrading to LS 4.2 and Mojave for the moment, in any case, until I upgraded I had no issues with LS.

I haven’t run a log to see but LS Daemon is taking 100% processing power and is blocking 99% of internet access.

And, after removing the configuration file for applications and rebooting, it’s still running.

Please provide guidance as soon as possible
