Malwarebytes Blocked website quite frequently

Recommended Posts

lately i have been getting popups from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Stating:


Successfully Blocked access to a potentially malicious website:


type: Incoming

Port: 80, Process svchost.exe


and 1 or 2 more similar to that but with port 5900 and outgoing through the svchost being blocked.


i am unsure of what it is and have done research and scans with multiple different programs and it has found nothing. i know that the svchost.exe is vital to windows running hosts and services and it cannot be deleted. what can i do where would this possibly come from?

Hello and welcome. DevilSpawn: :)
That IP is located in China and svchost.exe is a process often targeted by malware.
So, it's possible that you could be infected.

I would suggest that you please follow the recommendations in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
A malware analyst will help you look into this with some diagnostic scans and cleanup, if needed.
