Hi slouw, thank you for the information. The supposedly malicious website is actually an internet time server (not malicious at all). VueMinder periodically connects to a pool of internet time servers to determine the correct local time. This prevents various issues when syncing with other external calendars. VueMinder only downloads the current time from the internet time server. Information is never transmitted.

See the pages linked below for more details:
http://www.pool.ntp.org/en/
http://www.pool.ntp.org/zone/south-america

I’ll submit a false-positive report to Malwarebytes. Thanks for letting me know. If you could also submit a false positive report, it might help. The more people that submit a false-positive report, the higher the likelihood someone at Malwarebytes will do something to fix it.
