50.23.124.152 False?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure why I keep getting this as a bad site -- perhaps someone could help? Thanks!

50.23.124.152

I too have perstistant messages regarding that IP address and other IP addresses from Softlayer Technologies. It all started yesterday with a flash update - I think ?

It only appears on Ebay- I ran M.B. pro and my Windows defender but they found nothing. Any clues ? I found reference to Softlayer on this site but it was a thread years ago.

Relieved to read that I am not the only one that has been having this problem. It started last night, and is happening on both computers that have Malwarebytes Pro installed on. When I am on ebay, (I have been a seller for 14 years and spend hours everyday on the site, and this has never happened before) and go to one of my listings or any listing, I keep getting a Malwarebytes bubble notification indicating that it has successfully blocked access to a potential malicious website. Type: outgoing. Process: iexplore.exe. The IP addresses have been 50.97.214.162 and 50.97.218.220, and maybe another one that I didn't write down. I performed a System Restore and used CCleaner to clean out all cookies, etc., but to no avail. I ran a scan with Malwarebytes and Webroot but neither picked up anything.

Needless to say, I would appreciate any help to resolve this issue. Is it possible that ebay is using some banner ads that are causing this problem? Or, are there issues with Softlayer, who appears to be associated with these IP addresses? Or, is this a false positive?

I'm using Chrome, and it's happening randomly across many of the sites I use. I don't have any idea who softlayer is!

It appears to be caused by advertisements on web pages. I installed the AdBlock extension on Chrome, and I haven't had a problem since.

Regretfully, AdBlock didn't make any difference for me :-(

I'm with you now. It only worked for me for about two hours. Now I am back to getting the same alerts from Malwarebytes.

Yup - still getting it! :-( What I find most irritating is not that it's being blocked, but that I've no idea WHAT or WHY it's blocked. I don't know if it's an ad, or if I really wanted to allow it.

@funnymoney539

Please run MBAM and check for updates, then run a Quick Scan and post back that log as well as today's protection log

Thanks

I am also having problems now with MBAM reporting that it is blocking malicious IPs (outgoing) for several different IP's including 50.23.124.152. I have tried the suggested fix of updating the database and running a quick scan.

This notification came up when accessing a news story at www.reuters.com.

Is Reuters website really infected?

Fix did not work. Still getting it after going to www.cnet.com website. I cleaned the logs and did scans, computers that have Windows 7 64-bit (Home and Pro) and Windows XP (Pro). I have enabled Flash and privacy is running medium; however changed to medium-High. The only defense to this coming up is turning cookies completely off (disabled). From protection log: 2013/04/18 00:23:43 -0600 IP-BLOCK 50.97.218.220 (Type: outgoing, Port: 61362, Process: iexplore.exe)

2013/04/18 00:35:53 -0600 IP-BLOCK 50.97.218.220 (Type: outgoing, Port: 61949, Process: iexplore.exe)

2013/04/18 00:35:53 -0600 IP-BLOCK 50.97.218.220 (Type: outgoing, Port: 61951, Process: iexplore.exe)

After further checking, it seems if you set privacy to High or completely block cookies, it stops; however, you have not locked yourself out of forums, email, etc.

I am also getting notifications on just about every news website as well as cnet.com - but on my computer it is blocking 50.123.124.152. I am having a hard time believing that all of these reputable sites have content or ads that are now being blocked as malicious by Malwarebytes. Since so many people are reporting this all of a sudden - I am thinking that this must be a False Positive.

Can anyone from malwarebytes test cnet.com, reuters.com, to see if they are infected through these IPs?

Still getting 50.97.214.162 and 50.23.124.152. Pop up says "outgoing" and it is happening on various sites like ebay, chowhound and overstock.
