Why Does Mbam Connect To This Ip?

Is this normal? mbam.exe does it on multiple computers.

 

Hello blackdove83:

 

That IP address (72.21.81.253), is for one of the contract managed Malwarebytes Content Delivery Network (CDN) servers, in your general geographic region, for seeking MBAM updates from data-cdn.mbamupdates.com.

 

If you employ something like Microsoft's TCPView, you could see your systems "reaching out" to a Malwarebytes CDN every time you have MBAM Check for Updates.  Occasionally you may see similar MBAM communications with different IP addresses too, if the CDN changes.

 

This is all quite normal.

 

HTH :)
