Receiving Many Blocked Incoming IP Notifications


Recommended Posts

I'll start by saying hello to all as I am new to this forum. I've used MalwareBytes free edition for many years and made it a mandatory element in my arsenal for removing viruses and the like.

I'm currently using the pro edition and all was well for a few weeks however I've noticed that I am receiving many blocked incoming ip notifications, several per hour. I'm not sure where they are coming from but I receive them even when I'm on a safe social networking site (oxymoron?), reading email or blogs. Happens even when I'm not surfing but the connection is still on. I've checked the GRC site and I'm still in stealth mode. Is there a database in the forums that provides a listing of common incoming ip addresses that should be blocked or known to be safe/unsafe? If not, where should I look? I've tried reading the ip's from my MalwareBytes log and I've noticed that some ip addresses have caused MalwareBytes protection to stop momentarily then restart again quickly afterwards. Is this due to the automatic updates which MalwareBytes can tell is coming from it's own server or is this a sign of some type of breach?

Currently using Malwarebytes, SuperantiSpyware Pro and, as of 1 week ago, (and probably the reason my system is running at a snail's pace) Norton Internet Security. I have a very old system and using XP.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes

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

OPTION 1

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.
      Or
    • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.
