I have a 2019 Model S, and on April 11, 2021, beginning at 1:27 AM, I received twelve notifications (once per minute) from my Synology router with the following information: “The connection from Tesla_Model_S to 192.241.211[.]46 has been blocked for security reasons (Malicious).”

IP WHOIS Lookup shows that the IP address is registered to DigitalOcean, LLC in New York, NY.

I am not running any third-party software such as TeslaFi, etc. Does anyone know why the vehicle is reaching out to this IP address?

Thanks!
 
That specific IP maps to mx.danb.email, which indicates a mail server running at this address. Digital Ocean is just the owner of the network on which this mail server is located, they could be contacted if the owner of that mail server really was malicious - I did not find any reports of negative reputation. But why would your Model S send emails to that server?

BTW: disregard the nonsense from rooter. While Tesla is using Linux, it is not using Ubuntu.

No sh*t it's mx.danb.email. But if you had any sense you would have found that this is in the chain to Ubuntu NTP servers. No the car is not 'trying to send an email', lol.

You are wrong recluce, about several things. Putting you on Ignore. Some know just enough to be dangerous, or at least embarrass themselves. Do me a favor and put me on Ignore.
