how to see what process(es) are associated w/ connections?

Recommended Posts

i recently downloaded the newest version of MBAM and when i opened it, it asked if i'd like to try the pro version for free. i figured why not, and i guess one of the upgraded features is that it actively monitors incoming and outgoing connections and will block them if it deems any of them suspicious. well, ever since it started monitoring, popups have been appearing that state it has blocked a connection that is potentially malicious. prior to this my computer was infected (vundo trojan i think) but MBAM took care of it and i subsequently did a full system scan and it showed up clean. my question is, is there a way to find out which processes are causing these connections?

i have done reverse nslookups on the IP addresses and they are coming from Russia and China. i opened TCPView and another netstat type viewer called cports but neither have really helped as none of the open processes seems to be associated with the IPs that MBAM is blocking. also fwiw it seems to detect potentially malicious connections that are both incoming and outgoing.

any help would be appreciated!

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes

Being that you were infected, it is quite possible that there is still something running on your computer. It would be best to have it checked out by following the instructions below.

If you think you are infected, here are the steps needed to get your computer cleaned....

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

Don't use any temporary file cleaners unless requested - this can cause data loss and make recovery difficult

You have 3 Options that you can choose from as listed below:

  • Option 1 —— Free Expert advice in the Malware Removal Forum
  • Option 2 —— Paying customer -- Contact Support via email
  • Option 3 —— Premium, Fee-Based Support


As we don't deal with malware removal in the General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, you need to start a topic in the

Malware Removal forum so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

  • Please read and follow the directions >>Right HERE<<, skipping any steps you are unable to complete.
  • After posting your new post, make sure under options, you select Track this topic and choose Immediate Email Notification,
    so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.

NOTE: Please do not post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies.

If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.
