You received a Sophos Home notification on your Mac saying that a malicious traffic is blocked:
This alert is displayed because the Sophos Malicious Traffic Detection (MTD) has detected and blocked a malicious HTTP traffic. MTD is the Sophos component responsible for monitoring HTTP traffic that shows signs of connectivity to known bad URLs. For more information about MTD, see Sophos Malicious Traffic Detection FAQs.
Currently, it is not possible to add exception to the detected file. If you need to allow the blocked process, you can do either of the following:
- Disable Malicious Traffic Detection (not recommended)
- Submit a false positive report to Sophos Home Support
