Okay I run Win7 Pro 32bit on this particular computer and firefox 71 is the default browser (up to date via the about firefox under help in the menu). In the past few days firefox caused windows to say an unknown error occurred but firefox does not crash and I can use it. Aside from the weirdness of it nothing else occurred and this pc is only used occasionally, nothing found on the 19th and 30 of Dec 2019 which shows how little this pc is used generally when I scanned with McAfee and Malwarebytes. This changed on the 1/3/2020 when Malware Premium began blocking connections when I booted this up again to use. On 1/3/2020 I downloaded a few video files using qbittorrent, and afterwards qbittorrent had connections blocked incoming and outgoing. Firefox was also running at the same time (last sentence of first paragraph references the behavior shown with firefox). I had updated definitions so I shut down both programs qbittorrent and firefox and disconnected from the internet. Malwarebytes detected nothing so no results file from that time, but McAfee detected a trojan. That was all that McAfee could could say since it was not in the database, either it was new or a generic trojan. Anyway the infected file was quarantined and deleted by McAfee. I reconnected to the internet and Firefox seems to not be a target, but qbittorrent still had Malwarebytes blocking connections. I ran a new scan with Malwarebytes today and posted the FRST, Addition, and Malwarebytes scan log below. What is happening? 1-4-2020 malwarebyte scan.txt FRST.txt Addition.txt
I was running Utorrent last night and MB blocked over 12 dns address's. I did a whois of those addresses and only 1 was known for many different acts. The rest (on google) were identical basically. All they had were some unknowns where others are full disclosure. I accidently didn't save the address's, but it seems will keep growing. But I'm sure if I start the torrent client again Malwarebytes will be catching them within minutes. Here's the problem. 1 site was a known true perpetrator of exploits and other things, most of the others just didn't disclose as much self information as the others, or because of the similarities were running through proxy servers. No browsers were running (as a process either). This blockage of many only happens when running a torrent client such as Utorrent. Anything bad that I ever picked up and had to purge was picked up via browser or of my own carelessness. Because of the 1 truly known block I really don't want to turn off malicious website blocking... Why is this? Can these sites access a pc through a torrent client?
