Malwarebytes successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website.


Recommended Posts

Hi guys iv been getting this message for a while today, iv obly downloaded malware bytes today, my laptop is 6weeks old and i hadnt dwnloaded malwarebytes yet,

but i was gettin troible from babbylon and still am, iv seemingly disabled babylon search engine and it opens everytime on start up google chrome,

that prompted me to download mwb, i also dl'd avast ran a full scan and it didnt find anything, thats probably down to my full system scan with MWB's and it found and removed 83 infections,

it seems my computer is trying to access ips and ips are tryin to access my computer(laptop) and iv a free pro edition trial and seems to be working over time blocking these ip addresses, or is this a deep rooted virus,

all these ips seem to be linked to a process uttorrent.exe,

any help be greatly appreciated,

Jim.

Hi, and welcome, egghead: :)

IP blocks can indicate any number of things (from MBAM doing its job, to a "normal" occurrence when running Skype, to -- rarely -- a false positive).

However, it can also indicate infection.

This seems to be the most likely cause in your case, as you mentioned that MBAM has detected a large number of infections.

(There is quite a lot of detailed info about the IP blocking module in the FAQ - Section G .)

We cannot work on malware removal in this sub-section of the forum, so please read below for assistance with cleaning your system.

I was getting the "Malwarebytes successfully blocked..." repeatedly and suspected a TROJAN.

HOWEVER, it turned out that the problem went awayafter I uninstalled a file sharing program where I was apparently signed up to serve as an intermediary for routing torrents.

So...everyone please try removing your shareware (and any other legitimate softare that could be operating in an IP network) before getting into full antivirus hysterical mode.

Good luck.

Thanks, metametal.

You are correct - P2P programs, Skype and others like it will generate IP blocks.

For example, please see this recent post by forum Admin AdvancedSetup about IP blocks and Skype.

However, in egghead's case, he describes MBAM scans as having detected a number of threats, as well as other abnormal computer behavior.

That is why I suggested that he have one of the malware experts check his sytem for infection and clean it, if need be. :)

There is more information about the IP blocking module in the FAQ - Section G (and in the Helpdesk-FAQ).

Cheers,

PS Mods - OP is being assisted by Maniac in the Malware Removal section. OK to close this topic, if you wish? Thanks! :)
