46.246.69.150

Hello,

 

since I updated Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (PRO version) few days ago I am getting spammed by website blocking notification (bubble) for this IP: 46.246.69.150

 

My current database version is v2013.10.21.04 and it's still reporting blocking of this IP.

 

I searched to see who's that IP is and aparantly it's Portlane Networks AB from Sweden, visiting their website they seems to be big and legit IT company that even offers technology and stuff to other ISPs.

 

This "website blocking" IP doesn't trigger using updated Firefox, I can't figure it out what's triggering it but I double-checked my PC with full MBAM scan, HiJackThis, two different anti-viruses and everything seems just fine.

 

Nothing changed on my PC except for updating MBAM, Java and Flash for Firefox.

 

This is VirusTotal URL scan report: https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/3c394eeebd7e92e0e0d94a3341586a25e496a64973e5beafc4bcf2bd860dcae7/analysis/1382381671/ ( 0 / 47 ) - it's clean.

 

I know my PC is not infected, everything works fine but I am getting annoyed by often reports from MBAM that it blocked this IP, I want to figure it out if it's false-positive and what's triggering it.

 

Thanks.

I found out what is causing Malwarebytes to go crazy with this IP blockage on my PC... SKYPE! Every time Skype is opened MBAM starts spamming IP blocks, if Skype is set to start with Windows it starts spamming that IP block message from start-up. Any way to fix this and what's up with that IP, MBAM and Skype?

Hi, DenDron: :)

 

Until the staff arrived to formally evaluate your concern, this KB topic explains the IP blocking with Skype and how to safely deal with the IP block notifications: Why does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware block Skype?

 

Having said that, please wait for the staff/experts to weigh in with additional advice. ;)

 

Hope this helps,

Thank you for this link, it explained many concerns I had.

 

I recently started using Skype and it's really annoying. Everytime I open it I start getting spammed by Malwarebytes ballons about blocked IPs.

 

What is even more annoying when I turn off Skype (totally turned off) MBAM still keeps showing IP blocks until I reset router or reset PC - it's super annoying.

 

I checked my PC 10 times in last couple of days (MBAM full scan, NOD32 full scan, CCleaner, 3 different Anti-Rootkit softwares, HiJackThis etc) - it's fully clean!

Hi:
 
Again, I'm not an expert or staff, and I don't use Skype, so please feel free to wait for them to reply, but...
.... if the IP blocks are coming from Skype, they will listed as such in your protection logs, with Skype as the "process".
.... if you are still getting IP blocks even with Skype turned off (especially if your browsers are also closed and especially if the blocks are outgoing), then that would suggest that there is something else going on.
 
I would suggest that you might want follow the recommendations in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
A malware analyst will guide you through checking the system for malware (many of the tools used for this, such as the rootkit scanners) are very powerful. They are not designed for home computer users to use without expert guidance.

So, getting free expert help over in the malware removal section of the forum might be a good idea.

It will only cost you a bit of your time.

Thanks,
