Successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website malwarebytes port 6881 agent.exe

Recommended Posts

Have been getting this seemingly randomly for a couple of months now, funnily enough ever since I installed Blizzard's Desktop Launcher .......


Message is as follows:


Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website

Type: incoming
Port: 6881, Process: agent.exe



The IP address varies, I just happened to write down the one above.


Have tried running all kinds of malware scanners, etc but can't find anything wrong at all.


Any ideas please?

Hello Mallman,


agent.exe is the name of the Blizzard's Updating Software that they use for their games.


There are also posts on other forums questioning how valid agent.exe is: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8796521285


Most likely this is a false positive detection.  Does your Blizzard Updater still run and download the updates for your games despite some IP's being blocked?
