Unknown SSDP connections to Monsoonix.com visible in task manager

So this issue just popped up after playing a session of Soldat...

The SSDP Discovery service keeps open 3 UDP connections to adware-suspicious website Monsoonix.com even after the game is fully closed:

And after killing both the connections and the associated processes, two come back:

I recommend blocking Monsoonix in hosts.txt

Or disabling the SSDP Discovery service.
