Unknown SSDP connections to Monsoonix.com visible in task manager

Unread post by 3ICE »

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.

monsoonix.com is a parked domain now.

There was also a virus infection in a past version of monsoonix.dll which caused all monsoonix.dll versions to be blacklisted for a while in certain AV suites.
"Missing file: monsoonix.dll" errors quickly popped up among Soldat players.

This was years ago.

"Monsoonix.dll not found"
