MBAM Pro: OUTGOING block for Firefox (dot) exe; What should I do now?

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone,


     When I went on the Internet using my default browser, Firefox,  a short time ago - MBAM generated two separate alerts for an OUTGOING block, Ports57923...57958, (multiple ports in the range shown), ProcessFirefox.exe.  The log shows 12 OUTGOING blocks (consecutively), as soon as Firefox began loading.  The IP address was shown as: log screenshot attached below)


When I check the hosts-file(dot)net website, it indicates this IP is malicious (red-flagged), but, does not seem to indicate just WHAT the address is malicious FOR.


My questionAre there any other actions I should be taking at this point?


(And yes...I'm glad MBAM is doing its job)!


Full scans with MBAM, Outpost Security Suite Pro, & SAS are all normal.


Thank you for your time and any enlightenment!

As you already know, this means that Malwarebytes is doing its job... If this is happening everytime you open up Firefox, then it could be one of two things.... 1. You may be infected. 2. It could be a firefox addon that you installed.

As you also know by now, the experts can probably help you sort it all out....
