Product picking up some 'outgoing' messages?


Recommended Posts

Am trialing the malware as have been getting a few problems with my PC recently.

Ran the product and removed 2 supposed dodgy code elements.

Rebooted PC.

I now seem to get the following message appearing in the bottom right corner of my screen...

...every few minutes despite the fact the Malware bytes product, having re-run the diagnosis tool, says I'm clean!

Any thoughts??

Hello and welcome to MBAM, ukpoker:

IP blocks can indicate that MBAM is doing its job of blocking bad content on websites.

They can also occur when running certain P2P and other programs, such as Skype.

In some cases the blocks are a false positive.

However, they can also be a sign of infection, especially if the blocks are outgoing and if they occur when no browsers are open.

There is more information about the IP blocking module in the FAQ - Section G.

It includes instructions on how to set MBAM to ignore a particular IP, if you wish to do so.

It also contains instructions on how to determine what process might be attempting the connections.

You could also use a site, such as ip-lookup.net, to obtain more information about the IP in question.

On the other hand, if you think the IP blocks might be a false positive, then please read this article before starting a new topic in the False Positives forum.

Alternatively, if you think you might be infected, based on the IP blocks and/or other suspicious computer behavior, then please read the following to begin the cleaning process.

  • Please print out, read and carefully follow the instructions in the "I'm Infected - What Do I Do Now?" article.
  • If the infection has so crippled the computer that you cannot complete some or all of the steps, then just do the best you can and start a new topic as described below.

  • Then please start a new post in the Malware Removal forum.
  • When starting your new post, please note the following:
  • Please do NOT post in a topic started by someone else, even if their problem sounds similar.
  • Please COPY/PASTE the requested logs into your post, rather than attaching them.
  • Under options, please be sure to select "track this topic" and "immediate email notification", so you'll know when a helper responds.

  • Please be patient - it may be 48 hours or more before a helper can assist you, especially when the forum is very busy.
  • Please do NOT "bump" your topic or reply back to it for at least 48 hours.
  • Doing so may cause your topic to be overlooked, as it will appear that you are already being helped.

Please be patient - someone will assist you as soon as possible.

Thanks!
