How can I find out more about Ip-Block

Recommended Posts

Ever since I installed Diablo 3 I get constant IP-BLOCK (Type: incoming, Port: 3389) every day. Is there a way for me to find out more about who this is, what it is, and if there's anything I can do to hide from whatever it is.

There's also another IP along with that one, it's IP-BLOCK (Type: incoming, Port: 3389) almost at the same regularity.

I'm also wondering about an outgoing IP on port 57982, which is All of my other PC's in my house are running with licensed Malware Bytes (3 total) but it's only the system with diablo 3 installed that has these popping up from.

Anyone else out there with a similar situation?

Hello and welcome to MBAM forum, nevyn2k1: :)

I don't game or run Diablo.

So, I'm not sure exactly about what you're seeing.

In general, though, IP blocks can indicate a number of things:

  • They could indicate that MBAM is doing its job of blocking bad content on websites.

  • 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 they occur when no browsers are open.

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

They also contain instructions on how to determine what process might be trying to make the connections.

You may also research the IP in question at www.ip-lookup.net or a similar site.

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.
  • Then please start a new post in the Malware Removal forum.
  • An authorized, trained malware expert will provide free, one-on-one assistance as soon as one becomes available.
  • 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.
