I've just recently connected to Steam and Malwarebytes detected the IP that Steam connected to as malicious activity. When enter the log, it displayed the following message:

 

2013/10/18 10:11:24 -0500 BEAST Phu MESSAGE Starting protection

2013/10/18 10:41:16 -0500 BEAST Phu IP-BLOCK 58.241.15.179 (Type: outgoing, Port: 61233, Process: steam.exe)

When I tried to connected to Steam again, Malwarebytes allowed it to process, so I presumed that Steam connected to a different IP and Port perhaps? Is this IP a false positive?

Steam, as with many other gaming clients rely on P2P for updates which can and does often contain IP addresses which have been blocked due to various reasons. This should not present a problem for you as your download client will simply grab the data from other IPs.
