Romanian Connection not Being Detected

Recommended Posts

Every so often I will receive a popup balloon telling me that Malwarebytes has successfully blocked a connection to a potentially malicious website, listing an IP as, which I believe is in Romania. It lists it as either being incoming or outgoing, as it changes every other time. It lists the process it is coming from as pmb.exe, but when I end that process it lists the process as coming from svchost.exe with the same IP address. I have run several scans with both Malwarebytes and the default Windows Defender, and it has detected nothing. It is to be noted that yesterday I was infected with FBI randsomeware, but somehow managed to stop it from locking out my computer without removing the virus. Again, several scans have detected nothing at all.
