A Lot of Incoming IP Blocks from MWB

 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm afraid I may have a virus or malware of some sort. I may partly be a little paranoid, but here lately I've been noticing that MWBs protection module is blocking incoming IPs using several .exe's, but most of the time its svchost.exe. I'm pretty keen on my computer's processing speed when doing tasks, and I think I've noticed a slight drag in performance as well. Of course this could all be much ado about nothing, but I just want to make sure.

Thanks!

Not much showing, lets run some scans:

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit from HERE

  • Unzip the contents to a folder in a convenient location.
  • Open the folder where the contents were unzipped and run mbar.exe
  • Follow the instructions in the wizard to update and allow the program to scan your computer for threats.
  • Click on the Cleanup button to remove any threats and reboot if prompted to do so.
  • Wait while the system shuts down and the cleanup process is performed.
  • Perform another scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit to verify that no threats remain. If they do, then click Cleanup once more and repeat the process.
  • When done, please post the two logs produced they will be in the MBAR folder..... mbar-log.txt and system-log.txt
To attach a log if needed:

Bottom right corner of this page.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Note:

If no additional threats were found, verify that your system is now running normally, making sure that the following items are functional:

Internet access

Windows Update

Windows Firewall

If there are additional problems with your system, such as any of those listed above or other system issues, then run the fixdamage tool included with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit and reboot. It's located in the Plugins folder which is in the MBAR folder.

Just run fixdamage.exe.

Verify that they are now functioning normally.

I attached the 2 logs.  It didn't find anything, and I verified that the Internet, Windows Update, and Windows Firewall were all working.  The issue is that about 5x a day, I will get MWB tray notifications like the few below:

 

2013/09/28 03:01:27 -0500    FIB-MHANDY    user    IP-BLOCK    222.186.31.13 (Type: incoming, Port: 1433, Process: svchost.exe)
2013/09/28 17:13:21 -0500    FIB-MHANDY    user    IP-BLOCK    89.248.168.136 (Type: incoming, Port: 53, Process: svchost.exe)
2013/09/28 17:13:21 -0500    FIB-MHANDY    user    IP-BLOCK    89.248.168.136 (Type: incoming, Port: 53, Process: svchost.exe)
2013/09/28 19:00:21 -0500    FIB-MHANDY    user    IP-BLOCK    222.186.31.13 (Type: incoming, Port: 3306, Process: svchost.exe)

2013/09/28 20:15:32 -0500    FIB-MHANDY    user    IP-BLOCK    222.186.31.226 (Type: incoming, Port: 8080, Process: svchost.exe)

 

These started a few months ago when I tried using Tor to see what it was all about.  Then I started reading that there was quite a bit of malware and virus' floating around on there, and that one could get infected by just connecting to Tor.  What do you think?

 

Thanks,

OK...Next:

Please download and run ComboFix.

The most important things to remember when running it is to disable all your malware programs and run Combofix from your desktop.

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Information on disabling your malware programs can be found Here.

Make sure you run ComboFix from your desktop.

Give it at least 30-45 minutes to finish if needed.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

---------->NOTE<----------

If you get the message Illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion after you run ComboFix....please reboot the computer, this should resolve the problem. You may have to do this several times if needed.

  • Look over the log especially under Files/Folders for any program you want to save.
  • If there's a program you may want to save, just uncheck it from AdwCleaner.
  • If you're not sure, post the log for review. (all items found are adware/spyware/foistware)
  • If you're ready to clean it all up.....click the Clean button.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[s0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.

Lets check your computers security before you go and we have a little cleanup to do also:

Download Security Check by screen317 from HERE or HERE.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • If you get Unsupported operating system. Aborting now, just reboot and try again.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt.
  • Please Post the contents of that document.
  • Do Not Attach It!!!

Something for you to read:

 

The Website/IP Blocking is a good feature of Malwarebytes, but when it does its job....people think they're infected. Sometimes this is true, but we checked the system and I don't see any malware on the system.

My protection logs have similar notifications.
I have my notifications (only) turned off, that setting is under the "Protection Tab" in Malwarebytes.

If you would like to contact Malwarebytes about the problem, here's your options:
http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=119858

Here's some more information on IP Blocking by Malwarebytes:

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 include instructions on how to set MBAM to ignore a particular IP, if you wish to do so.
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 sticky topic 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 for the available options to have a malware expert assist you with cleaning process Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

It looks GOOD.....

A little clean up to do....

Please Uninstall ComboFix: (if you used it)

Press the Windows logo key + R to bring up the "run box"

Copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

cf2.jpg

Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and clears System Restore cache and create new Restore point

(If that doesn't work.....you can simply rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe and double click it to complete the uninstall or download and run the uninstaller)

---------------------------------

If you used FRST:

Download the fixlist.txt to the same folder as FRST.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait

That will delete the quarantine folder created by FRST.

The rest you can manually delete.

-----------------------------

Please download OTC to your desktop.

http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTC.exe

Double-click OTC to run it. (Vista and up users, please right click on OTC and select "Run as an Administrator")

Click on the CleanUp! button and follow the prompts.

(If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTC attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.)

You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process, choose Yes.

After the reboot all the tools we used should be gone.

Note: Some more recently created tools may not yet be removed by OTC. Feel free to manually delete any tools it leaves behind.

Any other programs or logs you can manually delete.

IE: RogueKiller.exe, RKreport.txt, RK_Quarantine folder, C:\FRST, MBAR, etc....AdwCleaner > just run the program and click uninstall.

-------------------------------

Any questions...please post back.

If you think I've helped you, please leave a comment > click on my avatar picture > click Profile Feed.

Take a look at My Preventive Maintenance to avoid being infected again.

Good Luck and Thanks for using the forum, MrC
