I'm trying to understand what is it and why does it send information over the internet? I have searched the internet for the answer but nothing came up that would completely answer my question

it looks something like this on nethogs:


It is being used by my username, no ip or port included, just sending and receiving up to 500kb of information. Thanks for your answers in advance.

EDIT: I managed to get a snippet of the last part of the token while it was in action. Couldn't resize more...

enter image description here


It appears to be related to this project: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/mojo/README.md. It looks like an developer/IPC/debugging method that chrome and v8-based webkits use (like Electron, or NW.js).

I think, you probably had a development version of some app running that you weren't aware of.

  • Thanks for the late answer. All I can remember is that it stopped when I removed sublime text but I'm unsure whether or not it was related. – user633551 Jul 19 '17 at 17:18
  • Sublime might be chromium/v8-powered, but I couldn't tell for sure when I installed it and I didn't break open the binaires to find out. BTW: I only answered because I had a similar question myself, since I saw records of mojo-application-channel-tokens being used on my system as well. – destenson Jul 20 '17 at 2:36
