Constant Message Saying "Successfully blocked access to a potentially"...


Recommended Posts

Starting 11/1/2013, I have been getting a message saying "Successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website 74.120.16 etc., Type: Outgoing, Port: Number varies, Process: iexplore.exe.

 

I get this message no matter what website I access. My access to website is not blocked. I am just getting this message no matter what website I access.

 

I have had the full version of Malwarebytes for a year. I have  seen this message occasionally and trusted that it was legitimate. But now I am seeing it constantly. I have run multiple full scans using both Malwarebytes and Norton 360. They have never detected any problems. So this appears to be a false positive, but I am not sure.

 

Please help. Thanks.

Thanks for replying aresnz. I recommend posting your problem here:  http://www.malwarebytes.org/contact_consumer/

I did this yesterday. Looks like it takes at least one business day for a response.

My problem just started 11/1. Since you are experiencing the same problem, it may be a new glitche and perhaps other folks will be notifying them as well. Meanwhile, I recommend limiting your browsing. Kind of scary when a previously reliable message starts misfiring. Malwarebytes has been great for me up until now. Good luck!

Hello and welcome to both of you, JJBXXQQ & aresnz: :)
 
Until one of the STAFF arrives, a couple of things:
 
First, this is the section of the forum for posting about possible False Positive detections on the filesystem scanning module, not the IP blocking module; website false positives are reported in a different forum section (see below).
Second, the staff would need more info (see below), in order to research your problem.
Third, even though it might seem like the "same" problem for both of you, each computer is unique -- so it's generally preferable to start separate topics.  That way, each topic can receive individual attention, with minimal confusion.
 
Having said all that, it could be that MBAM PRO is doing its job of blocking malicious content on websites (it could just be banner ads, not the website itself).  However, IP blocks can be indicative of infection, especially if they are outgoing and they occur with no open web browsers. :)

 

Here are some links to explain the IP blocking module:
What does it mean when I get an IP alert about blocking a 'malicious' site?
Software blocked

 

After reading those topics, if you think the IP blocks you are seeing might be a False Positive, please follow the advice in this pinned topic >>HERE<<.

Then please start a new post with the requested information (e.g. the specific IPs being blocked) in the website blocking FP section of the forum >>HERE<<.
The staff will determine whether or not those blocks are a FP. :)
 
OTOH, if you think instead that you might 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 guide you through the scanning and cleanup process.

 

>>If you already have an open ticket at the helpdesk, then please be patient and wait for assistance there.  Seeking help both there and here at the forum at the same time can lead to confusion for everyone. ;)

Hope this helps,

Hello and welcome, the_weeze: :)

 

Until the staff arrive, please see this KB topic: What does it mean when I get an IP alert about blocking a 'malicious' site?

 

...and these posts about this particular IP block:

MysteryFCM, the MBAM Researcher who handles IP blocks: https://forums.malwa...048#entry750140

AdvancedSetup, our forum admin, advising a user with a similar IP block: https://forums.malwa...048#entry750209

 

Under the circumstances, the safest course of action would probably be to follow his advice from this pinned topic: Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers

A malware expert will help you to look into the matter.

 

HTH,

P.S. (I'm not sure, but I think that by "MBP" you are referring to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) PRO??)

I've had an identical issue over the same timeframe using different browsers.

I'm attaching a portion of my most recent logfile (with my PC name altered -- multiple redundant line items not posted for post brevity)...

Hello and welcome, IAGuy77: :)
 
Here are some links to explain the IP blocking module:
What does it mean when I get an IP alert about blocking a 'malicious' site?
Software blocked
 
According to the MBAM researcher who deals with IP blocks (MysteryFCM), the blocks on this particular IP range are NOT a false positive: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=136048#entry750140

(They may have been recently added to the IP blocklist, due to the presence of malicious content. That would explain why they are being blocked now.)
 
As such, the safest course of action would be to follow the advice of our forum Admin (AdvancedSetup) given to another user reporting these same IP blocks: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=136048#entry750209
I would suggest that you please follow the recommendations in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
A malware expert will guide you through the scanning and cleanup process - the help is free.

Thanks,

@IAGuy77

With that many blocks that quickly I would bet that you're computer is infected.

 

I would suggest following the advice from the topic here Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers and having one of the Experts assist you with looking into your issue.

Thanks

Thanks to all of you for your suggestions. On 11/1,  I opened an E Birthday Card  from my sister (attached to an email) and, as I discovered it was infected with adware and junkware. I want to thank Julia from the Malwarebytes Helpdesk who patiently instructed me how to fix my problems via email over a 10 day period.

She suggested free addons called WOT (Web of Trust) as well as AdBlockplus, , which I have downloaded. She also supplied me with scans such as Combofix, AdwCleaner and instructed me on how to update my Java scripts. She is really a pro and helped me big time!!!

Below are some suggestions from Julia:

 

Below I have included a couple of recommendations for how to protect your computer against malware infections.

It is good security practice to change your passwords to all your online accounts on a fairly regular basis, this is especially true after an infection. Refer to this Microsoft article - Strong passwords: How to create and use them

http://www.microsoft.com/security/online-privacy/passwords-create.aspx

Keep Windows updated by regularly checking their website at :

http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com

This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.

http://www.mywot.com

Web of Trust, warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam. Protect your computer against online threats by using WOT as your front-line layer of protection when browsing or searching in unfamiliar territory. WOT's color-coded icons show you ratings for 21 million websites, helping you avoid the dangerous sites:

Green to go

Yellow for caution

Red to stop

WOT has an addon available for both Firefox and IE

https://adblockplus.org/en/firefox

AdblockPlus, Surf the web without annoying ads!

Blocks banners, pop-ups and video ads - even on Facebook and YouTube

Protects your online privacy

Two-click installation, It's free!

click the icon for your browser and download.

Please visit the MalwareBytes Knowledge Base page

http://helpdesk.malwarebytes.org/forums

It contains the answers to many common questions about our product.

Thank you for your patience, and performing all of the procedures requested.

Regards

Julia
