Hi everyone, i'm having a chronic problem with Svchost.exe having connections with random IPs. For the past 3 days now Mbam has been blocking many incoming IP connections under the Svchost process, with all IP addresses coming from Ecatel LTD in the Netherlands (except for 1 attempt yesterday from Harbin, China). I'm seeing these blocked connections about 10 times per day, and they seem to be from different Ecatel IPs each time. The latest IP was 18.104.22.168. All ports targeted were different each time. Also, today after another IP connection block, that same IP ended up invoking my BitDef firewall to prompt for permission for Chrome having an outgoing connection to that same IP few seconds later! I blocked it. Yesterday I disconnected my internet and scanned my pc with MBAM, Bitdefender AV, Malwarebytes Anti-rootkit, TDSSkiller, Kaspersky Virus Removal tool, Microsoft Safety Scanner (msert.exe), Microsoft Malware Removal tool, and all these scans found nothing. Today i scanned using Rkill, Combofix, and Adwcleaner with results attached below. This is a very chronic problem i've had for the past year, with Mbam blocking svchost connections or my former Comodo firewall prompting for svchost connections from random IPs from Brazil, China, Russia, Iceland, and now Ecatel, and each time i run an AV, MBAM, Rkill and Combofix scan it found no malware (except once combofix deleted a worm few months ago). The majority of these were inbound, although many were outbound too. I also reformatted my pc many times in the past few months ( as recently as 4 days ago), because I didn't know what problem is going on, but i don't think the marathon of reformatting is a lasting solution because it'll reoccur again sooner or later. I also tried blocking svchost from having any incoming connections with my firewall, but it only worked for last night. For some reason, right after i made that firewall rule, i couldn't find it in the list of firewall rules... Is there any way I can make this problem stop once and for all? What is it that causes svchost to make these connections? Can i just block svchost altogether from connecting to the web? I would greatly appreciate any help to stop this madness.
