    When I visit http://www.macrumors.com why do I get continuous PUSH from www.xeena.com as a SafariNotificationAgent warning.

    I really don't understand what I am saying, but I do understand that I get this red flashing warning from Little Snitch concerning www.xeena.com wanting to continually communicate w my iMac when I visit MacRumors. Why? What is happening?

    Yes, it's a reputable company. It used to be AdwareMedic before being sold to Malwarebytes, which is also a great company. Works great on both Mac and Windows. It's scan-only software, so it's not invasive.

    Another vote for them. I've used the app on my wife's PC.

    Are you sure it's not xeeno.com? That's one of our servers, and the process you're referring to is related to Safari push notifications for our site. That said, I don't know the details of how that communication is handled.

    Oops, you are correct. The spelling is xeeno.com. All I know is SafariNotificationAgent sets off some type of flashing alert in my Little Snitch window, called a PUSH. Wasn't sure why or the significance.
