Hi All, This new process appeared 1 week ago when I was away on vacation using a mobile USB device to connect. That device has been just fine for 6 years, and only ever used a couple of times a year (in the same place) when I find myself in the boondocks. No neighbours there, and no WiFi anywhere around. Old MBP with Mavericks. LittleSnitch started kicking off asking for permissions to connect to sites with addresses consisting of all kinds of longs strings of rubbish. Being paranoid I said no. Then, as it was getting insistent, I completely blocked the process, and all ok since then - even back home on a good connection. However, what's really spooky is I can find not 1 reference to this process searching on Google, and now Adobe Lightroom (properly licensed and working) is stalling and not performing at all. If it's a kosher process, why on earth are there zero references to it on Google ? It's also a process that re-spawns the moment it's closed in Activity Monitor. I've added a screenshot below in case it helps - and I am *not* Tarquin. Anybody have a clue? Many TIA.
