Cogentco IP's

Recommended Posts

When I start browsing I notice the following IP's make a TCP connection:


Process PID Protocol Local Address Local Port Remote Address Remote Port State
AvastSvc.exe 1696 TCP 1543 http ESTABLISHED

Even when I close the browser, the connection still stays active, unless I force close it.

As far as I know, my system is clean of malware (latest defs loaded, protection always on).

I came across this info regarding the IP's: http://www.abuseipdb...ry/

Is the info correct, should it be blocked?

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes

IP address:

No host name is associated with this IP address or no reverse lookup is configured.

Error:Host not found is from United States(US) in region North America

I would recommend that you have someone assist you in checking your system for a possible infection that may not currently be detected.

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 or infections you may have.
  • Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete.
  • After posting your new post, make sure under options, you select Follow this topic and choose Instantly,
    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.

    • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
    • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.

Think this is ok now. Did full scans in MalwareBytes and Avast, found no problems.

After the boot scan of Avast and loading into windows I noticed the Avast IP and the cogentco.com IP showing right away. Went on the Avast forums and it's known that it sometimes connects to third parties for adverts or news.
