Using mac os? Block the undisclosed spotify p2p broadcast udp traffic here!

Undiscolosed spotify p2p traffic was leaking across my VPN connection to my employer. Thanks spotify!

On mac os high sierra, you can block this with:

$ sudo vi /etc/pf.conf

Add the following line to the bottom of the file:

block drop quick on <interface> proto udp from any to any port = 57621

Where <interface> is the interface over which the traffic is leaking

Then, disable/enable the firewall

$ sudo pfctl -d && sudo pfctl -e

 

Kind of annoyed that a premium subscription lends you to something you can't readily opt-out of.
